    The sky looks abit over exposed. What ive found is that if you use the burn tool is ps to about 10% you can almost "get rid" of over exposure. But otherwise, I love it
    I haven't discovered the burn tool yet ( and it sounds perfect for me! ) whereabouts is it located - using PS CS

    Hi cat. The burn tool can be accessed by pressing o on your keyboard. It is the icon right below the paint bucket/gradient tool. Just right click on it and select the hand. Then in your options toolbar set the exposure.

    I find the burn tool very interesting, esspecially with black & white macros in conjunction with the shadow/highlight tool.

    Be very carefull though, because just as easy as it is to turn a ok photo into aamazing one, it is to turn an amazing photo in a pile of .....

    Hi cat

    I did some testing on that photo of yours, I wasnt very successful as my boss does not like me doing personal things in bussiness hours
    Atleast you can get an idea what I was talking about. I used the highlight/shadow tool to bring out some of the overexposed details more. Then I used the burn tool with an exposure of 20% and shadows to bring out the clouds more. Wish I had abit more time so I can mess about properlly

    Another option is to use the burn tool on the buildings only and have a overexposed sky. That way the focus point of the photo is the buildings.
