Invisible Cities Final Image - Esmeralda | Establishing Shot (EDIT)


As Phil suggested, I added more blue to the scene to hint at water in the city although I'm not too sure whether it just looks like neon lights somewhere below. I attempted to create a Disney-look as Phil had also suggested but I couldn't seem to get it to work unfortunately. It made everything look out of place and unappealing.

I also changed the levels of the image to create a slightly higher contrast and get rid of the slight orange filter-look the image had. After flipping the image in Photoshop, I thought the left side was a bit bare so I added some birds which creates some interest and furthers the sense of depth.

  1. The blue for me works nicely, cool colours tend to work nicely in shadows and makes the image easier to look at overall. I would perhaps suggest giving the mid-ground structure some warm highlights.

    It's looking nice though so well done and good luck with the other shots!
