Default Waikiki in Argentina

This building is in Waikiki beach, but it's in the city of Mar del Plata.

Did you use an orton or such effect on this? Not my favorite from you, sorry.

Yep. Not my favourite too... May be a little too much Orton. Here's without Orton:

Not so sure I like the Orton effect..the original looks fantastic enough for me! Nice and sharp and a nice composition.

You're both right. I was enthusiastic about the play of proportions (Golden number in the verticals) and the horizon coincidence.



The Orton effect adds nothing here.

Ordo,

Great composition as always, restrained, precise. Beautiful. Who the .... is Orton. Sounds like a motorcycle brand from way back then
