New York skyline as seen from Exchange Place NJ
Hi, a good hot no doubt and well lit. For me the image is a bit flat.
I like the composition and the blend looks great.
@jhsurti The image does look flat. There is a lot of empty space in the bottom left and the top. Consider cropping up and down to reduce this. Try using a levels adjustment layer to give it all some pop with some selective dodge and burn. There are some recoverable details in the sky. Sometimes in flat light it is hard to recover the image. See a quick edit attached.
@mike-singh Thanks mike. What I had in mind was that empty space with the wooden flooring lines guiding to the skyline. Hence a small aperture to get everything in focus. That was my vision when I shot the pic. Thanks for the suggestion.
Now this image has some potential! Did you do multiple exposures that can be blended to recover details in the sky? I'm thinking panoramic crop.

Shoot with Pentax.
@jhsurti here's my attempt. I did not do any double processed Exposure Blending. I used a series of Curves layers with targeted LMs to adjust the Sky and foreground. For the bright spot on the sky I cloned on some of the adjacent sky into it with a B3 LM.The flat lighting is not helping.
