    One of my neighbors sons lives in Hong Kong. When he came with his family for visiting, his nearly 5yrs old daughter weren't able to stop crying of fear, because she saw all the stars for the first time in her life. Light pollution is a important problem, many people can't deal with it, nature and wild life can't.
    For all the children there I made Shenzhen a lot darker so they are able to see the stars.

    Thanks for this interesting contest, @Fleming F. and amazing shots, each of them!!!:)

    I selected 4 of the pictures for my edits and renamed accordingly.

    1. "City Night"
    For this, I used snapseed and gave a dramatic effect by using a little HDR, structure and reducing some noise.
    Compressed with yaImco.

    2. "Ray of hope"
    Tokyo tower at night (RAW)-01-01_001.jpg
    Using snapseed, I gave this one too a dramatic night look by tweaking the HDR, structure and reducing noise. Also compressed and cropped with yaImco.
    The Tokyo Tower stands there tall and bright in the dark and thus reminds me that even in the pitch of darkness.. there's always a ray/light of hope.

    3. "Old time's sake"
    This picture gave me a vintage feel and hence gave it a retro and vintage effect with some warm tone using PicsArt app.

    4. "Magical dream"
    It's just that I found this crazy and funky galaxy filter and I liked it. Looked creative and magical to me. :tearsofjoy:
    Used PicsArt for this.

    I usually color my photos using LightRoom but for this challenge, seeing some users arts inspires me to do more than just color. I also used Photoshop to get a bit more practice out of it which it helps.

    1. FF7 Mako Energy Night Tokyo Tower -
    So I did color and some correction on it. Also added a star trail for the dark sky.

    2. Cyberpunk 2020 Shenzhen -
    This was interesting for me. I didn't think I was going for this route at all. I went for a Blue/Pink cyberpunk/vaporwave look.


    I have more to show but there are less interesting than these 2. Thanks for the challenge and hope you like it.

    I used snapseed to edit all the photos
    Here i wanted to show off the colorful city lights at night
    I adjusted the highlights and added more structure to it & gave it half gold half iced blue tint which worked amazing
    The original was more dull so let's say I gave life to the beautiful scenery
    I inspired these colors from the OnePlus 8's interstellar glow & man it turned amazing
    In the last one I went with a Harry Potter dark vibe which suits this scene... Enjoy

    Here are my thoughts for tone+lighting adjustments for the provided images:
    (Adjustments done in Snapseed, Adobe Lightroom mobile)

    I'm too lazy to add reference images to compare the before and after results.

    Thanks @Fleming F. for pulling this thread, and I wish you guys keep posting such challenges more frequently.
