Flat Bogotá

Bogotá is not famous for its skyscrappers. In fact, despite to be a large city, it doesn't have high buildings, and it's easy to see far in the horizon.


This is a single exposure from the tallest buiding in Bogotá, 'Torre Colpatria', which is about 50 stores high. It was processed entirely in PS. Only the sun was blended from another exposure took the same day a little bit earlier. The blending process was using luminosity masks (it's my first time using this technique! Still so much to learn in order to really get its true potential).


I'd love to capture some light trails at the wright road, but using a tripod here is tricky, since the view deck is protected with a fence, not glass. So, unless the tripod thas a vertical column, any shot will show this thick bars, which will be challenging to remove in post. Instead, I had to bump the ISO and use wider aperture (more than I'd normally want for this kind of shots) in order to take it handheld with the lens 'sticked' between the fence's gaps.
