Foz do Iguaçu View From the Top of Rafain Centro Hotel

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!

View of Carolina, small city at Maranhão – Brazil

I’ve been in Carolina on my last vacation, in July 2011. It is a small and beautiful place on the countryside of Maranhão, Brazil. It is located on the right margin of Tocantins river. The city was founded in 1809 with the name of Arraial São Pedro de Alcântara. According to a 2009 census it has a few more than 25,000 inhabitants. The picture have been taken from a church tower using a 6 meters (19.7 feet) pole.

See the complete panorama here!
