Two Bridges, One Rainbow

My original image is this one, which I captured a few weeks ago of the view looking into Brooklyn, between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges.


The image is already quite nice, so I didn't really have much to do in terms of editing. However, when I look at that view, and the rainbow that is appearing out of Brooklyn, it suggests a hopeful theme to me, so I began editing with that in mind.


Here's my image, partially edited, and I've begun intensifying the color and contrast to bring out more detail in the sky and rainbow. I've also used a gradient filter to darken the foreground a bit, to reinforce the idea of coming from darkness into hope. Might be a little heavy-handed, though.


Here's the final image, with lens corrections applied, and some adjustments to the tones.
