    PP involved lowering white balance to 3K, straightening, croping, slight sharpening. C&C would be appreciated

    Aahh, used to drive over that everyday to and from work (also worked for the company that was involved in building the approach roads on the Black isle side.

    Don't think I've had the chance to say hello, Ian. Welcome to CiC.

    That is a very good image. I think your adjustments work well and the crop is ideal.

    Yes, Ian, my first thought was that it needs a crop, particularly from the sky.

    For me, you may have gone a little too far on the blue side with your colour balance. The only other very slight thing which I would change is to clone out that little green light near the road bend.

    Otherwise, it looks good.

    Hi Donald,

    Thanks for the welcome. I was quite pleased with the result, as I said its not something I have really tried but a good exercise and I'll definetly be trying more night shots.

    Hi Geoff,

    Thanks for the feedback, I agree it may be a little too blue now, did look a lot crisper when temp lowered though. may have been easier to adjust WB if I had it set lower in the camera. going from daylight setting was a big adjustment,
