When The Photo Is Better Than Reality...

8 Sep 2022 9:03AM   Views : 315 Unique : 203


I was on holiday with friends last week and liked this scene so reached for my smartphone and captured it but to my surprise, it looks a million times better in the image than it does in real life. In reality, the colours weren't dancing on the water quite as brightly and everything lacked a bit of 'oomph' so the processing the smartphone has done has, well, improved real life in a way! The sky is a bit noisy if you open the image up and view it large but that's simply down to the limitations of the smartphone in low light but to say I didn't need a tripod or long shutter speeds, it's pretty impressive.

Pretty Building

They have revamped a lot of old town in Paphos but this building still has some of its original charm about it. The red frames and shutters pop against the whitewash and there's also some interesting detail when you get up close.

I Love An Old Door

There's just something about old doors that shout to me and as a result, I've been photographing them for quite some time now. All of the history and stories they could tell... plus, they have great designs and are much more interesting to look at ...
