I did another post https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=664542 that was similar. And there will be more on my blog "That Very Next Thing" soon.

Here's the original. It's not HDR, but I agree that I'm not quite happy with the halo near the buildings in the background.

Thanks for the comments.

It doesn't bother me that much, although if you took the blue out of that area it would probably clear up the problem for the most part. What bothers me more is the glowing new block of cement and the strip of lightness that connects to it. If that was intended I have no idea why.

Thanks, everybody.

Bendel, I'm going for surrealism, a sense of something unusual or impossible. Though I'm not sold on the beam of light going down to it, seems too literal.

Muse, that's the Sigma 10-20. I love it. My cheapest lens, and the one I use the most. Whatever works, right?

Great PP. I like the first one better but both are great. How long does it take you to do one of these?

Thanks, it just depends. Because I might want to have this printed large, I had to take more care on the details. For example, I cloned out all of the cars and made sure the toning etc. was believable, even at 100%. Either way, it's usually 5+ hours to do something that doesn't feel sloppy.

An interesting concept. In this case I would have to say that the building piece in the lower right doesn't help the image.

I like the pic.

I get the feeling of a last remaining house trying to escape the city life and the city is not having any of it. As if the city is sending in a storm to destroy the house. The lone bright block of concrete is the point of attack.

I really love the surreal feeling in this image. I like the use of light here too! Very creative, I have a lot to learn, that is what I begin thinking about when I see images like this.
