Finally, the second photo of our recent trip through Shanghai and Indonesia. I've been busy lately, which is to be expected after traveling for six weeks. Catching up with work and administration (are there freelancers reading this who hate administration too?), friends and family to visit (which is nice of course), cleaning and washing (for the most part done by Barbara) and many, many photos to view and select.
This picture was shot while walking around Shanghai in the late evening. I love these dark, empty and mysterious alleys. The photo is practically untouched by Photoshop. I only made the shadow areas a little brighter (not much) and turned up the sharpness a bit, that's all.
The colors are real. The weird smoggy sky was the strangest I ever saw in my life, totally surreal. Lit by millions of neon-lights, it sometimes looked orange/brownish and sometimes grey or greenish.
