Guadalquivir

By KingBee
Rather than go back to my "Sketches", I've decided just to upload the odd Spain image as I would any other, as the mood dictates. Here we have a view of the Rio Guadalquivir which pretty much bisects Seville, showing, in this scene, the Triana barrio on the right and Santa Cruz on the left. The former is traditionally more working class, while Santa Cruz is where you'll find all the important monuments such as the Cathedral, the Alcazar and the like, as well as all the tourists, not to mention the upscale bars and restaurants. Go to Triana if you want to get away from all that: it's really quite delightful.

I've deliberately under-exposed and de-saturated this to give it more of an 'old postcard' look. The sky was shot from my kitchen door; everything else is real!

Many thanks to Bill, Allan, John and Somnath for their much-appreciated UAs for my previous upload.

That's very effective creativity there, Bob. The sky suits the shot perfectly, and I probably wouldn't have guessed it was imported if you hadn't said. The underexposure and desaturation works extremely well. I can't help myself but give this a gong.

I do like the darker and desaturated look, it works well.
The problem with replacing the sky is that you then have to see the new sky in the reflection in the river...there's always something extra to think about!
