Wow, Capetown must be a really beatiful city - South Africa is on top of my list of places to visit

Having read every book that Wilbur Smith has written on South Africa I feel like I know the place. Before Canada put an embargo on South African stuff I used to buy Paarl wines. The Roodeburg Red was a favorite with the roast beef. Anyway I took your first pic and with 1 click of Auto Color it fixed that hazy look. Big difference eh?

Thanks Bynx,

It does look way better. I was thinking about editing the shot on the plane, but got lazy. Which program did you use? photoshop?

The are really not much in big building, allot of dutch influence in the cities design. But the closeness of the nature really make it a gem to visit.

I have apple aperture for editing. But I tend to not like to do post production editing. But after I showed my wife what bynx did, she wants me to use aperture to fix all the other photos. That is all.

Just to show you to listen to your wife. This was literally another 1 click fix. I hit Auto Color. And thats all.
