Nature and Landscapes
Urban and City
This is a shot taken during a trip through Douro Valley in Portugal. I loved all the hills with their fresh green grass - so I took far too many pictures of them!
I mentioned before that I strongly recommend to have a walk across Manhatten bridge, even though it is painfully loud due to passing trains. If you do decide to take this path, you will be rewarded with awesome scenes such as this!
When I edited this picture, I played with many different interpretations - some more and some less colourful - but once I saw how some of the buildings are pure black and others are near-white, this version felt absolutely right.
Here is another view of the stage of the Yasaka Shrine in Kyoto, Japan. I love these lanterns - though of course I have no idea whats written on them. Translations, anyone?
