Here are a few photos .
All the images are directly from camera. no post processing involved at the moment.

Pretty town.

- Choose "IMAGE EDITING OK" in your profile if you'd like people to apply sample edits.
- They're all so similar. Are you asking which one to pick? Numbering them would be helpful.

It doesn't look rainy...?

Other than that, I don't like the dirt path/ledge in the bottom left.

fair enough lol

I like #3 best. Would like it better if you found a way to get only the city and mountains, leaving out the trees in the foreground. Looks like that location has great potential.

I like 1, 3, and 5 the best. Sky is kind of "blah" in all of them, but i like them other than that. Might add a bit of vibrancy to really bring out the grass/trees though.

I think they all need a little boost in contrast. Gen2roller's edit may be a bit too much though.

I'm with Qbx. I'm not a fan of the haze or fog look unless there was something else to go with it like being in a rain forest, jungle or something like that. Just my opinion but I love the subject. I think any time photographers can get a shot of an entire town, it's great. One picture can tell a lot about one city/town.

I like #3 the most. Simply because it's more of the actually city and less of the hills and stuff in the foreground. And what's with the thing sitting on the hill? Kinda looks like a couple maybe. I'd clone them out. Kinda catches your eye

The clouds are blah but have potential for drama. Check out this video from Adobe.
