This also isn't far from another of my favorite locations in Central America, Granada Nicaragua where I spent 2 weeks with The Giving Lens working alongside the incredible children of Empowerment International
I hope all my friends in this region are ok! Please keep them in your thoughts today.
This photo is from my EARLY EARLY days of photography (march 2007). Like, my first week. It was taken with a Canon SD600 point and shoot camera. Maybe like 5 megapixels. I had just learned that I needed multiple exposures to make an HDR (thanks to Trey Ratcliff's HDR Tutorial!)
I put the point and shoot on a boat and manually took 3 exposures. When I got home, I processed in Photomatix 1 (yes, Photomatix ONE) and applied this new technique called The Orton Effect in Photoshop :)
Ah, the good old days.
This photo was my first "published" photo. Zoom Costa Rica had used it in some of their old guide books.
