Image Spotlight (Dec 8, 2017)

This image was taken on an overcast mid-October day in Monaco. I had never been to Monaco before and was surprised just how many buildings are compressed into a relatively small area. However, it meant I could pack a lot into one photograph. I love how the buildings ascend up the mountain side, but there’s enough untouched scenery behind it to make an image with a good combination of both. I didn’t actually do a vast amount of retouching to this image apart from combining them into a HDR, tone-mapping it and doing some basic contrast and brightness work.
