I've been trying out 'city' photography lately myself and need a lot more practice, but this shot is very inspiring. I love how this has a futuristic cinematic look to it, somewhat surreal. Really nice job.

What city is this?

Stephen Norman's picture

Yea I think the cinematic look comes from the slightly off colours that I've used for the blues of the sky and the oranges of the natural light, but yeah it gives a nice tone to it I think :)
This was London and is recreation of a shot I took a few years back which was similar but much worse I think so makes me feel happy that I'm making progress at least lol.
What's your favourite genre to shoot then?

Did you blend multiple exposures using luminosity masks? Or did you spend a lot of time getting the colors right?

Stephen Norman's picture

Hi Jon. I shot three separate exposures with the intention of blending them together but in the end this was an edit of a single exposure with quite a bit of work.

The colors are amazing.

Thanks man, I'm really happy with how this turned out 😊

Is that a composite of three buildings? Or is it "one shot"? Anyway, it looks amazing, man!

I know this scene. I've got these 3 from a different angle on my website landing page. You did a much better job than me though!
