A fun aspect of travel for me is to discover subtle, often missed details that contribute to the unique character of a city or a landscape scene. With a camera in hand, I’m more aware of my surroundings and actively look for ways to capture ordinary scenes in a different way from the usual tourist’s snapshot. Sometimes I’m successful, other times I’m not, but no matter the outcome, I always enjoy  those moments.

As anyone who uses Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop knows, one can spend endless hours manipulating digital photos. After lots of experimentation with various color settings, of the two photos below, I prefer the one with higher color intensity. Which one do you prefer?
