This year I’ve been to Foz do Iguaçu on the beginning of my vacation. This picture was taken from the top of the hotel where I was hosted with my family. I would like to thank the manager that, not only allowed me to go there and take the picture from a restricted area, but also helped me.
I decided to shoot at sunset. The sky was beautiful, with some clouds drawing the blue and orange colors. I did it on July 11th 2011 by 5:50pm.
I left the city darker than it could be. I have made a lighter version, but then I saw that the most beautiful part of the scene is the sky, so I went back. This dark version is more faithful to the original image.
This is the first time I use a new viewer for the web. It has new features like the initial animation, the sun moving flares and the interactive Little Planet scene.
Hope you like and comment!
