Here are a couple shot taken at 2 different times of day.. same day, same photo location.
Its one of those times that the closer to noon that you shoot, the better the shot. At least I think so. (The exif time stamps are wrong by 2 hours since I didn't reset the camera clock for the time zone change)
Both were edited in lightroom, but the received very similar adjustments.
Bonus view.. a ground level view of people in the blue steam of the 12:22 photo.
