    Red, White and Blue Freedom Tower

    Was just looking through some shots from last night and realized they started lighting the Freedom Tower in Red, White and Blue. Here's there best angle I got on it - definitely a unique addition to the NYC skyline!

    I'm not crazy about the composition of this one because it's just the skyline (a portion at that). However, given the uniqueness of the freedom tower, I figured I'd throw it out there. I'm also a sucker for reflections...

    Post prod: large crop, exposure / wb tweaking (took the exposure of the buildings around the tower down a bit), lens correction, vignette, level, couple blending layers, de-noise with topaz. Also slightly increased the saturation on the red lights on the bottom of the tower.

    As always, any feedback / tips are greatly appreciated!

    For a "just another nightscape" this one is pretty darn good imho.

    Definitely a keeper. I especially like the detail that you retained in the highlights.

    Ideally, I think I would like to see just a little bit more of the reflection. And would, if necessary, be willing to lose a little from the top.

    Overall, an excellent photo.
