Waiting for the Morning

After staying up early and drive to the Nordpark in Wuppertal and searching for the Skywalk (I should prepare such visits before actually going) I was able to take this picture.
Staying on top of the roofs of Wuppertal and waiting for the morning. It was awesome to see the city waking up and the sun breaking through the clouds.

    A fine shot.

    Fine indeed. However, if you hand centered it more, equal on left and right that would be better. Furthermore, the bright green grass patches are not adding anything other than distraction and breaking symmetry in my view. I would just darken them like rest of the dark stuff so they are out of the equation. Cheers.

    Great pic! That was well thought out and has a great mood to it.

    I like the shot, maybe doing a 16:9 crop could work, lose the grass and center it as Taz suggests.

    Thanks for all for the feedback. Really appreciated. Actually, the grass are yellow flowers :) But fully agree, they somehow look like they should not be there. But actually, this brings me back to something I've learned during the last day while going through my picture library. You really see your errors while capturing pictures during the editing process. There you have time to rethink it and you get new ideas, on how to make the picture even better.
    Really enjoy this kind of conversation, as it helps me to get better, hopefully :smiley:
