    Good, strong composition, particularly on the first one.

    I'm not such a fan on heavily tone-mapped images, but that's a matter of taste.

    The biggest 'problem' with the first is that you're workflow has led to extreme halos. These are most obviously seen running up the edge of the lampposts (refer to the 'How it works' section in this CiC tutorial. I recently struggled with the exact same problem here. It's all about easing back in post-processing and not been too aggressive.

    Both are good but I prefer the first. Great sky and good reflection in the water under the pier. Donald has mentioned the ghosting, which is something I too have suffered from and now always try to keep an eye on it when editing.

    Donald and Christopher thanks for the comments and pointers. Guess I over did it.
