I want to make a gallery wrap of one of these 3 skyline shots. I would like to take a vote as to which one you like best. Please help me pick.

Thanks

Nice images. I would pick #1 since the sky is very nice and the buildings really stands out. Mainly because of the flood lights. But then again the pelican? makes #3 to stick out

First one, the birds are a distraction in the others.

Problem with #1: The lighted sign on the building is overexposed and blurred.

I would go with #2 and make three changes:


  1. Remove the bird.
  2. Bring out a little detail from the shadows of the buildings.
  3. Rotate (level) and correct the lens distortion.

Number 1 is the best. The flood lights add dimension to the buildings and the sky does not wash out the rest of the picture

Number 4 may be best, but it isn't really in panoramic / skyline format... out of the 4, I think 1 is framed the best...

#1 has a better balance of brightly lit signage and street lights... in #4 that building sign dominates like someone kicking you in the nuts while screaming AMERICAN BANK.

definitely #1 if not for the above reason, than because of that gorgeous sunset lighting in the sky.

lol, thank you for the opinions, I am going to do the #4 in a gallery wrap 16x20, i won't crop like I cropped to post since it will be wrapping around the sides.
Should i try to tone down the american bank some how? it was foggy so the fog enhanced the sign a tad. Tips and sugguestions please
