I did this on 12 x 18 Strathmore 140lb cp. The reference from a California Valencia Town Mall photo my husband took.

It's not easy doing lights agains a dark sky. Somehow the line going horizontal on the building is a little off. Could be the camera angle added to it.

Any comments and suggestions welcome.

Have you ever looked directly into these lights at night? It almost hurts your eyes because they seem to be so bright... Sylvielu, you captured that exact feeling! I really like what you've done!!!!!

Thanks for looking and commenting. I glad you like it. I'm thinking about doing another one from the same photo ref but the other side.

Sylvielu - yes, do another! This is very nice - in fact, looking at it almost gives me that pre-migraine feeling (which is not a criticism, but a compliment because it means you've really captured that looking-into-bright-lights feeling!). Like the auras around the lights and the colors in the building, the palms...will wait to see your next one!
