Ah, the old "Hollywood night scene" trick, where I generate the frames exactly as if I were doing a day scene and then apply a dark blue filter. Except in panel three I ended up with an obviously daylight sky showing between the Parthenon columns, so I had to select and darken that further to avoid the incongruous "bright sky at night" effect that you can see in many older films.

2014-07-18 Rerun commentary: It's hard to know which statement is more dangerous in terms of tempting fate: Either one is incredibly dangerous. I think to really be safe you need something like:

"This is a roughly average situation, possibly - but not necessarily - with one small semi-notable quirk which may or may not cause anyone's attention to be drawn to it in any way which highlights anything out of the ordinary."
