The City That Never Sleeps
The processing of this image was more difficult and time consuming than it should have been. Because i didn't capture this shot with the correct exposure, the night sky was much brighter than i wanted it. This required me to create a mask of just the sky. Masking is not my specialty in Photoshop. Oh well. Once that was done, the rest was cake. I turned it into a monochrome image using the channel mixer function. Messed around with the channel settings (red, green, blue) to increase contrast. Used the brightness/contrast function for even more contrast. And, Viola.
