this is what my photographer friend took
he wants to try the shot again though
this shot was only available for less than a minute because of the sun fast setting between the buildings

i took my shots while holding the light reflector for him in one hand so my shots aren't the most steady or best setting

I think the 4th one is the best. I like the colors/composition doesn't look soft to me.

i like the rooftop shot as well
i purposely didn't mess around with photoshop on those beyond just adding some contrast
because i like the glow and colors as is


like this one

The 4th one in the 1st set is pretty good. Nice soft glow effect from the sun setting in the background.

Turns out he's a pretty cool guy and we've become pretty good friends. He actually won't let me work on my car. I think it frustrates him too much to watch me fumble-fukc my way through the most basic DIY's.

Nah, just shuts down. Would be pretty expensive though.

thanks
I think I am getting better with shooting and editing
plus I had some help with the lighting because I was holding the reflector for my friend who was shooting the actual photos
