The Bat Bridge

In January of this year, I visited Austin, TX for the first time.  Beautiful city!  They were not there this time of year, but in the summer, there is a massive colony of bats that inhabit the space under this bridge.  This is South Congress Avenue looking across the Colorado River towards downtown Austin.

This is the original image...


From here I removed some branches in the foreground, added some color, enhanced the reflection of the sky in the building in the center with a radial filter in Lightroom, and ended up with this...



Then I did some cropping toned down some color, and darkened the blacks to give some more detail to the buildings and add a bit of contrast to the concrete under the bridge. This, as of right now is the final edit.



Thank you for the tutorial!  I found it well presented and easy to understand and follow.

Looking forward to thoughts...
