Urban landscapes: the city and the sky

THE CASTLE VIEW, EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND

Edinburgh Castle, which is really more of a fortress, dominates the city’s skyline and provides impressive views like this. Because of the dull, lighting, I had to do a fair bit of Photoshop processing to bring out the best of this scene, which includes the Parish Church of St. Cuthbert. Using a graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky was also important; without it, the sky would have been a bland, distracting white.
