Havana at Twilight... with a little Fuji Velvia film look...

Havana is beautiful night and day, with so many wonderful sights and sounds! Taking in the big picture is a treat. I originally photographed this scene as a panorama, however this intimate view is more appealing to me. I had fun going over the top with color with the Fuji Velvia film effect from Alien Skin Exposure! Fuji Velvia provides high saturation and vivid color. Exposure 3 also has vintage film and Lo-fi camera effects that offer the photographer many creative options.

Photo tip - Try shooting at twilight for the most magical light. Use a tripod, cable release, and wait for the beautifully balanced light of twilight that only lasts for a short period of time. If you arrive early to your destination, you can catch sunset, and choose several potential compositions for twilight.  Have fun shooting! ~ Deb
