this was an old spanish fort that served as a lookout back in the, spanish occupation of Guam. this one is overlooking the small village and on the opposite window overlooking the sea.

the photo deteriorated in quality after loaded on here, hmmm..

WOW! Those are some gorgeous blues in the photo! Did you push the saturation up a bit, or is it just that pretty?

Berto, those colours are terrific. How do you people manage to get such decent shots?:cool:. Did you say deteriorated in quality. Then my screen must be very good. Kind regards.

this is a great shot... nice composition with the building off to the right 1/3 and great dof and saturation throughout.. would make a wonderful brochure pic.. nice one!

yes, great shot.

How far to the right does that river/bay go? Might make for a cool pano shot extended to the right.

I like this as well. The land in the distance looks like a scale model. Very crisp colours and sharpness too.

thanks everyone for your comments.

here's the original. i didn't really have to do much to it.

A true beauty! What an interesting story to this image. The exposure is spot on and the sharpness from front to back is amazing! Do you shoot in RAW or JPG?

hi stitch.
thanks for the comment :)
when i shoot i usually never shoot with RAW. i shoot in high resolution .jpg and convert to .tiff then edit the image. when done, reconvert it back to .jpg

personally, for me, shooting with RAW takes too much effort editing. i think the easier technique is to use the bracketing technique when shooting.

have a good week.

Fantastic shot Bert - almost as good as your avatar (would love to see that posted)!
