Wiki says: Intramuros, located along the southern bank of the Pasig River, was built by the Spaniards in the 16th century and is the oldest district of the city of Manila, the capital of the Philippines. Its name, in Latin, intramuros, literally “within the walls”, meaning within the wall enclosure of the city/fortress, also describes its structure as it is surrounded by thick, high walls and moats. During the Spanish colonial period, Intramuros was considered Manila itself.


I had 12 GB of photos from our photo walk.  Most of it were bracketed shots. I was so excited to take pictures, I forgot one important thing: I forgot to take notes about the name of the places I took pictures of.  (Shameful but…) I was not really paying attention to history during school days.  Well, the professor was immensely boring so it was not entirely my fault.  Anyway, I’ll try to check the names of these places and update my post.

How I took it: Settings: f9 | 1/100  , 3 shots bracketed

Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10-20mm, hand held Post Process:

  • Stacked and aligned 3 pictures and tone mapped in Photomatix
  • Adjust contrast and sharpness in ACR
  • Cleaned in Photoshop CS4
  • Adjusted color balance and added textures, also in Photoshop CS4

Thanks for viewing! /Mike
