The number of lights not on suggests the early part of blue hour when interior lights are just beginning to come on. The ORF developed in Adobe Camera Raw – both for moderating the verticals and exposure. Then, a trip through Topaz DeNoise (Low Light). Followed by some time in Photoshop removing the boat's overhang, calming down the blue panels on the waterfront structure at right and cropping for punch. Put a faint orange glow on the buildings with a color layer to suggest the hour.
