So I'm having a blast turning the view from Kiener Plaza into my own "Dark City" world with single image tone mapping. Next up is the AT&T building, processed in Nik HDR Efex using the "Turquoise Night" preset as a starting point. Levels and curves were adjusted in Photoshop CS5 and lens correction was applied. Finally, I added the "CSI Miami" glow in Nik Color Efex Pro.
The monochrome conversion is courtesy Nik Silver Efex Pro, using a red filter and sepia/blue split tone.
I'm trying a solarized version of each picture in the series. This is my least favorite of the three, perhaps because the clouds are too harsh.
