Tijuana At Night
I spent time in Tijuana when I was on the West Coast and it is a city I do enjoy as the people are friendly and the food is amazing. I know Tijuana gets a lot of bad press but trust me, no one is dodging bullets over there unless you are in the drug trade. I speak with some authority on this having spent a lot of time there and carrying around a camera and doing street photography. With that out of the way, this magical shot is a vista view of Tijuana at night shot from a window in my hotel that had no glass in it so I was able to put the camera out the window. The Panasonic LX 7 which has shot almost all of the recent stuff I have showed has been a beter performer since I read a book on it. Turns out there is a setting called Hand Held Night Shot and this is a product. The only downside its jpeg but don’t think it mattered here. What the camera does is fire off a set of images and then digitally encodes to make a picture to reduce image shake and so on. I processed it in LightRoom then ran it into Dfine then ran it through ColorEfx and did a detail enhance and then a color contrast. Hello photographic magic!
