Well, I promised you guys a more detailed tutorial on how I work a while back and even though it took a long time I did it at last. :) Obviously it's a summary but it does describe all the important steps. One thing I forgot to mention in the tutorial is that the blend mode and colors I used here won't always work with others landscape/city photos. It worked here mainly because of the lighting in the original shot I think (winter light, late afternoon). And I didn't get it right the first time either, there's a lot of going back and forth... In fact, while doing this tutorial, I played with the image again and found a version more to my liking (see version 4")... so yeah possibilites are endless. :) Anyway, I hope it helps. Have fun !

With over 700 processes hidden within today's Photoshop, and me a master of maybe three of them, I can always stand to learn. Thanks for the tip! Great shot, by the way -- love the result.
