Back at home we begin merging exposures and carefully keeping those nice looking light streaks.
first color correction and fixing perspective.
removal of undesired objects. This took way longer that I care to admit.
more light streaks and recovery of the night sky.
Final image, with an extra dose of creative colour grading (the yellow in the building, though accurately yellowish as it's being lit by vapor-sodium lamps, looked a little gaudy).
