The Catch Offloaded

I shot this at the Panama City, Panama Fish Market. It’s rather a famous tourist attraction but its also a working fish market with local fishermen bringing in the days catch. You can enjoy a nice, fresh seafood meal there if you are inclined and the prices are extremely reasonable. I had a mixed seafood ceviche and two beers for the princely sum of $3.

I snapped this after I finished my lunch and was on my way to Casco Viejo. One of the problems I had with Panama is that the weather wasn’t on my side. The light was constantly overcast and when the humidity hit a certain point the skies would open up and it would pour down rain. So I was always fighting with light and weather.

To make things pop a bit more I masked in some bits here and there. Just give it a bit more color and a bit more detail that would otherwise go missing because of the light.

Enjoy.

  1. I like the photo of the boats dropping off their catch for the day. Sounds like a great place to buy fresh fish. I envy you for the mixed seafood ceviche and even the beer on a hot afternoon sounds great. I really would like to visit Panama one day.
