      Awesome technique you show here.
      Brilliant view from the plane.
      Nonetheless, I wonder whether the structures
      should not be a bit more blurred, given that there was rain
      outside.

      @kipate I'm not exactly sure if you mean some things are too blurred or not enough? I didn't want to blur too much because I wanted the structures to still be mostly visible.

      @Artmaster well, I thought of maybe blurring rather the edges
      more, or well, the areas that are rather apart...
      For instance, that scenery on the top left did a bit surprise me because
      it was very clear too see.
      I guess you are right nonetheless, the basic structure should be rcognized immediately. Also nice work with the car lights (y)
      Did you use Photoshop effects, or did you use layers?
      E.g. taking a night shot and cutting out all white-red lights...

      @kipate I spent so long making that edge map look so nice I couldn't stand to blur it into oblivion! Haha... I used over 100 layers to make this image...I made every light by hand with the pencil tool. I did snag a few photos of cars on highways but once they're resized down you can't really make out what they are anymore. It was alot of fun, more to come each week!

      @Artmaster ah, I know that feeling with designing
      each new layer, but I hardly am willing to do that
      regularly myself. But that makes your work even more valuable (y)

      WOAH! What a incredible scenery! This is an outstanding work! I love the traffic density on the highway crossing, i love the work you did on the edge of the map, i love the overall dark and rainy atmosphere a lot. Thank you Artmaster for your time and effort! Can't wait to add your art to my CJ :) :) :)
