i finally got a chance to do some more matte work with this commission from the Danish tv-station TV2 Zulu. Panoramic photos were shot at various exposures by Sune Saabye, stitching was handled externally, I did compositing, sky replacement, and generally repainting the city. The towers across the horizon aren't actually placed like they are in this image, but the client wanted them spread around for a more idyllic scene. I took out a bunch of ugly stuff like chimneys and industry in the background, as well.
Hope you like!
