This is one of the latest photos I have taken with the SONY NEX-7, before I switch to the Full Frame system. Unlike many of my photos, this was not a bracketed HDR. It’s a single RAW file that was subject to few post processing steps. In short, I have created two copies of the photo in Adobe Lightroom (Virtual Copy), and edited each copy separately. One of them was adjusted for the sky colors, and the other copy was adjusted for the building and surroundings. Then later, took those two copies into Adobe Photoshop as Layers. Using the Layer Mask, I blended the two copies producing this beautiful scene.
