Thread: Day to Night

    Day to Night

    I have some photographs of buildings taken during the day. I would like to modify them so it looks like they were taken at night. Any ideas?

    First, do you have any reflections of the sun or harsh light

    I have done this before. If memory serves me correctly, adjust the levels to darken globally without losing all your highlights (which you'll want to deepen, but not lose), adjust your sky seperately and possibly create a new gradient for them, and desaturate the warm tones of the ambient-lit objects.
