View From Central Festival

I had to stop at Central Festival Mall here in Pattaya looking for a decent camera store. Turns out I could have just skipped that entire process because all the stores didn’t have what I wanted.

I have been spoiled by Amazon and easy access to camera gear. Sadly in Thailand there is no Amazon so you have to know a local place to source or import it in from the US and pray it arrives sometime before you die. On that note, I did fine decent camera shops who will source from China and at a reasonable rate. So in the end it worked out.

With my rant out of the way while I was at Central Festival I was feeling peckish so I found a place to eat. During this I saw there was an observation deck. While I had my Nikon D810 with me, that would have required effort to pull it out of the bag. So instead I just pulled out my Canon S100 and took the shot.

To be fair, I may have enhanced the photo a wee bit. I can’t push the pixels nearly as hard on the smaller sensors because it will start to pixelate and get noise. So I just bumped the sky and add some additional color. Little bit of sharpening here and there via masks and all good.

What a nice photo! Pushed or no pushed, I like it. The sky is most beautiful. The water with the boats going to and fro looks inviting. Looks like it could have been SWF with the Palm trees along the shore. The people seem to enjoy being out on the water as much as we do in SWF. What a nice place to sit and enjoy a bit of food and watch the folks on the water. Very nice.
