    I like number 2. The dark clouds make the cathedral more domineering, even a little scary, and that adds character to what normally would like a normal tourist destination type photo.

  2. Hamad says:

    left one sharper details

  3. mo3ath says:

    2 the upper part
    1 the half down

    can’t join them ? 🙂

  4. Purgatory says:

    2nd, that is in bruges?

  5. KTDP says:

    number 1. It’s got more detail and tends to work better overall IMHO

  6. TwaiF says:

    number 1 if you show the clouds

  7. lfc-q8 says:

    #1 better detailes and crisper

  8. Ahmad says:

    I think you can play with #2 to get the clear and sharp building while maintaining (and improving) the clouds. I think this would be the optimum solution.

  9. Aurous says:

    I prefer #1
    It’s easier on the eyes

  10. dots... says:

    the clouds in the second add to the picture … as what ahmed said.. sharpen the building without adding highlights to it… adjust the contrast … and add your touches to the sky ! Too much light would make the picutre looks unreal !

  11. X says:

    Number 1 because it looks like it was taken in Disneyland 🙂 Was this taken in Prague?

  12. number one has great details but its over exposed , number 2 is good but kind of dull and a little under exposed

  13. kwt23 says:

    #2 because of the clouds…and i’m guessing it’s something historic so darker details on the building is preferable.

  14. Abid says:

    #1 looks more surreal and isn’t washed out.

  15. DVLz says:

    #1 has much higher contrast but not true colors, look at the top of the building behind the church which i’m not sure what those are but they are faded out in #1.

    You can add lighting and shadowing to images using applications or plugins, or you can also mix the 2 images together by blending or tone mapping for a better result. So my final answer would be #2.

  16. Ansam says:

    number 2 🙂 looks unedited and more natural… I see the details of bricks clearer in #2

  17. pumkinah says:

    no 1 .. more alive and colorful the other one seems dull.

  18. pumkinah says:

    although the contrast makes the upper and lower parts not matching with each other in no 1 ..

  19. pumkinah says:

    i guess no 2 is much natural than no1.

  20. HBZ says:

    i prefer number 1 men ta7at .. w number 2 men foog ..

  21. Adrenaline says:

    Number one if you photoshop the white background with a blue sky with some clouds.

    الاولى عجبتني اكثر .. في حياة أكثر من الثانيه

  23. Yousef says:

    Thank you guys for your input, I appreciate it. The picture was taken in Munich in July. I photoshopped image #1 and #2 is how it looked originally. Personally I think #1 looks better, But I understand that the sky was totally lost in the process. I need to get better in photoshop.

    Thank you all again. 🙂

    Because its brighter and the flowers appear to look sharper.

    more of a happy picture I would say.
