Not satisfied with the photos I got the first time I climbed the Elephant Mountain Hiking Trail, I made the ascent again on my last day in Taiwan. There were quite a few more clouds in the sky which translated into more colours and the opportunity to do some long exposures.
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 photo is comprised 2 exposures and was manually blended using luminosity masks.
Processed using Adobe Lightroom 6 and Photoshop CC 2015.
The Taipei skyline as seen from the viewpoint at the top of the Elephant trail, a popular hiking spot right in the middle of the city. To the right is the iconic “Taipei 101” or the Wok in a Box as I like to call it.
