Below is an excerpt from my travel blog. Cheers.

 

If you catch the city at the right angle you can see its many avenues stretching through the urban jungle and into the horizon. Little cars zipping up and down avenues are like active little microbes in a test tube.

 

I've been noticing a lot more photos that are completely photoshopped. I recently joined 500px. This new photo sharing site is supposed to be more of a stylized version of Flickr, with more of an emphasis on really outstanding photos. However, I find that every other photo is completely photoshopped. When I say photoshop, I mean either bits and pieces of other photos are pulled together to create a completely surreal scene, or it's in some way graphically enhanced. I will say they certainly draw a lot of attention and are often visually pleasing, but I'm not sure how I feel about them. It would seem to be defeating the purpose of capturing the moment.
