Beijing can look amazing at night if you manage to find a high enough spot. Being a relatively flat city, you best bet is Jingshan Park just north of the Forbidden City. From there, you can get a 360 view of the entire town!
Now the original photo was looking a bit ordinary since it was a long exposure, handheld with a lot of noise. I couldn’t quite do exactly what I had in mind for the photo, but I do think going all the way over the top with the editing made it much more interesting.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this one!
