Hanoi – Presidential Palace

Photography

Another set of throwback of my Hanoi trip back in 2006. In the last round where I filtered the photos, this particular shot was removed from the “pick list” because I was not interested in architecture shots. In addition to that, as I was shooting on wide angle, those that have bad distortion or wide angle effect gets rejected. Now that I have learnt on how to straighten the angles, it is a lot more easier to accept the architecture photos shot not using tilt shifts.

The photo above is the Presidential Palace. To be honest – I don’t even know what building is this, and I had to Google for famous places in Hanoi! Then – when I saw something that is similar, I then know which building is this. Funny indeed – well, then again, this is more than a decade ago, no way I can remember!

I am now in the process of trying to put some of my photos back onto Adobe Creative Cloud. What I realised is that if I sync my photos from Lightroom Classic, it does not take any space in comparison to migrating it thru Lightroom CC (or now called as Lightroom). This is very confusing but I guess I do have some options to play around with for my older photos.

While going around trying to move my photos from its “Folder” in the computer to “Synced Collection”, I obviously will see some of the photos that will catch my attention. I do like Lightroom but the problem is that the ability to do selective adjustments is not as good as Lightroom Classic. As such, for now I will still go on a hybrid mode. My problem is that my storage is still very low which is just 100GB. I calculated, with the new ARW files that I have from my Sony camera, I can only store about 1250 photos. Definitely won’t be enough for my holidays. When I contacted support 2 days ago, they mentioned that the new plan for storage will come out on 7th June. Let’s see whether there will be plan for Malaysia. It’ll be awesome to be able to put all my photos on cloud. Less headache!

Back to the photos, following is a newly revisited photo of Buckingham Palace. I guess when I start looking at my old photos, few photos caught my attention and this is definitely one of them.

The next photo is the statue that located in front of the palace. Awesome place indeed. I’ve stayed in UK for 3 years and I never visited. I only visited when I went to London after finishing my work visit in Manchester.
