photoblog image Riverfront HDR

Riverfront HDR

An HDR of three exposures, hence the ghosting of the individuals seen on the right. This shot was taken in Calbayog City, around the central market place. It was a pleasant evening; I had just downed a 'halo halo' and then was strolling around this spot. To my right was a sort of open air amphi-theatre were tiny tots were doing a group song and dance presentation. The hustle-bustle of a long day was slowing down and the evening breeze helped. All in all, time well spent rejuvenating myself!

One needs a stroll after a halo halo, Ayush. The HDR effect works well here.

Wouldn't mined to walk along there myself Ayush you captured it well.
Ayush Basu: exactly the kind of feeling i wanted to impart through this image Pedro. thank you
lovely composition Ayush
Ayush Basu: many thanks JC
What is a halo halo? Also, is this a fishing net stretched across the water.
Ayush Basu: thank you for the visit and the comment. i am not too sure but i reckon they install those nets to trap floating trash [plastic bags, dead leaves, etc] and every once in a while someone goes out there in a boat to accumulate it from the nets.

let me point you here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo-halo the one i had was not so heavy on tapioca, jackfruit or sweet potato but had a healthy amount of rice and kidney beans. very refreshing and filling! smile

Great HDR work, it looks like a lovely peaceful place to visit.
Ayush Basu: thank you very CP, would highly recommend a visit here
Really nice shot Ayush, I like the lamppost.
Ayush Basu: functional and not too assuming, isn't it? thank you for the visit Brian
Good choice of hdr here, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: thank you Tom
The picture complements your thoughts and the situation perfectly, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: thank you Graeme, the serenity of the time and place helped.
Beautiful shot! Perhaps the ghosting of the individuals is just giving us an idea of how you were seeing after your 'halo halo'! smile
Ayush Basu: that was perhaps the dash of local favourite red horse beer. aptly named for the kick it gives grin

I can sense the atmosphere of things slowing down, Ayush. I really like your HDR work, btw.
Ayush Basu: and thank you for the regular visits and feedback. slowing down yes, for the more important things in life
