I wish there was an easy way to clone out the flag in the right corner - it looks odd... but it's not going to be pretty. What do you think overall ? The original was rather badly backlit.

Should I bump the contrast, or is it good as it is ?

I prefer the more natural shot we first saw.

But the cloning out of the flag should be straightforward enough. And it appears to need a tiny tweak to the verticals, as the lighouse is leaning a touch left and the skyscrapers the merest touch right.

I don't like the idea of cloning our flag out completely -- how about relocating it?

I like the idea of relocating the flag. I like Qbx's rendition best.

Like the first and really like the b&w has an almost comic book feel to it...
