... and it came out much better than before. I think having the proper shutter speed made a difference. I also learned that you need some foreground elements so the viewer can make sense of what they're seeing. The top one has some trees and a horizon, the bottom one doesn't.
Let me know if you can see anything distinct. In the Photoshop processing, I played with the exposure setting which brought out the foreground, but I can't tell if I did it enough. For me, it depended on the backlighting on the monitor. If the room was a bit dark, the images looked great. If not, well, your mileage may vary.
In an case, I left them really large, so they're worth some clicks. Enjoy!
