Adding a dramatic sunrise background

I tried to cutout some interesting subjects and add them to a dramatic sunrise background. How am I doing? I really appreciate any comment/critique. Thanks!

Dreamstime Photographer Gary718,

I wanted to let you know I used your photo (The Empire State Building and Manhattan) in my new children’s book ‘Look Up’ recently out on Amazon. I thank you for your contribution to the book. I purchased the royalty-free photo through a subscription with Dreamstime. I wanted to send each photographer a copy of the book displaying their work but unfortunately with 71 photos used it is financially impossible for me to do so at this time. But I do not want your work to go unrecognized so I hope the book will bring people to Dreamstime to see the wonderful photos available there.

You can see more about ‘Look Up’ on my webpage


I hope it means as much to you as it does to me seeing your photo in the book and that you or someone you know may enjoy it!
