Masked out people by copying, pasting and blending "clear" sections of wall and walks. Changed Color Balance to add yellow and red. Lowered Exposure and Levels. Elongated and skewed wall shadows. Added sky. Manipulated added layers of clouds from sky to add some light behind mountains.

*update* shadows made longer. :) (5 years and 2402 days ago)

Very nice blending, but the sunset is not positioned properly for the shadows coming off the RH side of the wall...

I liked it .... I guess the shadows must be a little taller according to the sun's height ... the atmosphere is clear and nice ... good work by removing the people .....

author says:

Thanks so much, both of you! Moved the sunset off to the right more and redid the shadows.
