Great goodwill 2013-08-06 5:13

Just two words to describe the shot" Dark Moods".

The remains and the ruins present a deadly look.

From the notes I find that this upload comprises of two images. Did you stitch the two images or something else? I am curious to know, how is this done. Will you please spare some time for me to understand this ?
Waiting for the reply.

Default To goodwill: blending basics

Rajeev, here's what I did
in Photoshop, open the two images and make a duplicate of the one exposed for the buildings
on the duplicate image, select all the bright overexposed sky with the select tool
on the 'sky' image, use select tool to select the sky area copy the selection
on the duplicate image paste the selection as a new layer, then in the blend option choose darken and then all the bright sky are is replaced with the correctly exposed sky
move the copied sky around until its where you want it, then adjust the levels to lighten it slightly. When happy, from the Layer tab, merge the two visible layers. There will be some artefact around the skyline and this can fixed by carefully cloning from the original image to the duplicate image.
That's basically it, then it just takes time, patience and practice to get the result you desire.
