    I love that 'deep' blue hour time of night and this doesn't dissapoint! Is that a star or some kind of bright spot, top center - I think I would clone it. Well done as always, anymore?

    Thanks Chad.

    It's Mars (I think, Venus is in the morning, right ?) and there are other stars in the image but they are barely perceptable, even at 100%. I thought to clone it out but didn't. It certainly looks like a hot-spot at this size. If I end up using it for more than a forum photo, I think I'll take your advice and remove it.

    This is something I've been wanting to do, and must make the time.

    As lovely as the blue sky is, I'd consider cropping about halfway between the top of the towers and the top of the frame.

    I'm on my son's computer so any edits will have to wait. I'll post a crop and a larger copy. As it is now, the Collégiale is almost exactly on the bottom powerline. A slight crop on the left will put the main towers on the left powerline. If I crop the top I may need to crop the bottom.

    So what do you think?

    I think it has more impact this way. I know it's larger, but I can see things I couldn't make out in the original.
