St. Paul

I took this one a few months ago and, to be honest, could have used a few pointers (still could!). I wanted to take a nice shot of the sunset over the St. Paul skyline, but originally got way too much distracting foreground and used f/5.6 even though I was using a tripod and could've gone for a higher, sharper aperture. Oh well. The colors were so-so and looked a bit off, but a nice, contrasty black and white + hdr + topaz adjust makes this a much-improved image, at least I think so...Anyway, I'm waiting for finals to be over so I can play with my new medium format TLR and developing B&W film at home. Exciting things to come...
