Taipei’s Giant by miketlim

The Taipei 101 is a skyscraper located in the Xinyi District of Taipei. When it opened in 2004, it was the tallest building in the world until the opening of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai on 2010.

This view of Taipei’s skyline was shot from the Elephant Mountain Hiking Trail. It’s a short and steep climb to the top but definitely worth the effort.

This photo is comprised 2 exposures and was manually blended using luminosity masks.

Processed using Adobe Lightroom 6 and Photoshop CC 2015.

Kotor Panorama by miketlim

The fortifications surrounding Kotor have been in place since the 14th century and are on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Its architecture was influenced by Illyricum, Byzantium, Venice and Austria.

The Church of Our Lady of Remedy, shown in the photo, sits 100m above the city of Kotor and can be accessed by ascending the numerous steps that scale the walls.

Below, you can see the red roofs of the “old town” which are a result of Kotor’s time under Ventian rule. Our cruise ship also stands a short distance behind the city. It was amazing how close the docks of the city were to the old town.
