I'm thinking of getting this picture printed, but I wanted to see what you all thought I could improve on it. Post processing is still something I'm learning and figured a few extra opinions/critiques would do well! Thanks in advance!

maybe bring out some more texture in the clouds, the dark building middle right needs to have the shadows brought up a bit, other than that, I like it. Would look really cool on metal, BIG.

Very interesting.

Kinda hard for me to readily digest (in a good way), so I'm not sure what to suggest just yet. My question would be what is the message/vibe/point that you want your viewers to take away from it? That might prompt/guide some refinement/recommendations .

Agree with the previous suggestions. I did a quick re-work to illustrate, the sky has added detail with the highlights reduced and the shadows lightened on the foreground. In you're version the overly bright sky kept pulling my eye up and out of the frame. I used luminosity masks for the effect along with a touch of Dodge and burn.

Would be most appreciative if you could go into a little detail about how you got this incredible shot. Presume it is the "Top of the Rock". Camera, lens, handheld or on tripod, software, time of day, etc. Oregon girls pp is excellent.

Thanks for the comments everyone and the rework Oregon Gal! I like it and I'll make the adjustments mentioned before getting it printed. And yes Travis, the plans is to get this printed large on metal and hang it above my couch . I figured the black and white would look great on metal.

The original shot is a composition of 5 portrait frames taken from the "Top of the Rock". Camera is a 5Dc, 16-35L II, handheld, and time of day was around noon if I remember correctly. It was bright enough to let me shoot at f11, iso 100, 1/80. Edited the original frames with lightroom, stitched together with Photoshop, details in sky brought out with Viveza 2, and converted to B&W using Silver Efex Pro.

I also got these 2 from the same location, but around sunset (these were done by laying the camera on the ledge, using the timer, and having the neck strap tied securely around my hand!):

I think the lights have been pushed a little far in that second one, they start to dominate. I have a shot similar to that from my trip there, but our weather SUCKED. I actually got to use my tripod though...since the weather was so bad, there was no one up there and they let me use it.
