3 Skills A Cityscape Photographer Should Be Able To Do On Photoshop
First of all, straight off the bat, I recommended that all photographers shoot in raw rather than jpeg. This is usually changed easily on DLSR cameras. Yes, it is true raw files take up more place on your memory card restricting how many photos you can take. Despite this raw files are more flexible as they have more quality, (number of pixels) meaning it is far easier to edit mistakes and to change the feel of an image. Many of these ideas are useful for landscapes also.
Skill 1 – Getting The Most Out Of Your Sky
So here are a before and after photo of the Royal Palace in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Here it is in photoshop raw.
One way I love using the HDR setting is on brightly lit buildings at night. The HDR setting can often bring out details and the sky that would be impossible to see otherwise. Take this example of the Nord/LB in Hanover, Germany.

Skill 3 – Adjustment Layer
As can be seen from the sliders on the right certain parts of an image can be processed in a wide range of ways. In this situation, I decided the tree on the right-hand side of the image was too dark. With your icon, you draw over what part of the image you want to change. In the case of upping the exposure, it is wise to turn up the exposure to 4.0 the maximum number in order to make it easy to see what you are editing. Then when you happy with your suggestion, slide the slider back to a level you’re happy with.
