      Hi Sarthak, I like the drama and details in the clouds. You may have to increase the exposure a bit because the observatory is almost invisible. Also, it would have been better to leave a bit more space on the left of the observatory as it looks pushed towards the edge too much 🙂

        Now that you mention it I feel that I could have spared some space on left. I did try increasing exposure but I don’t like the effect it has on dome building.

        I adjusted the crop. I have increased the exposure to +1 . To mask any changes on dome I used a brush stroke with exposure -1 that neutralizes the effect of raising exposure on dome.I gave the image another try.

          This looks better Sarthak. I also like Tobie’s crop on the image 🙂

      Sarthak since this is about the dome, I’d give it much higher prominence by using a crop such as this:

      dome

      SocI had the similar idea so I captured an image like this. SOC . I’ll work in this later.

        Yea I believe it works much better than the 1st shot as you have more space around the dome.
