Daily Photos - Part 13

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Cool, I'll keep my eye out for it next time out that way.

I gotta ask. Have any of these photos been "tweaked"? By that I mean "improved" using photoshop or other similar software to make the colours brighter etc.?

Not really. Just a basic RAW process. The first one had a bit of rotation to straighten it, some + exposure and clarity. The second was cropped and had -0.4 exposure, and some clarity and contrast. They're more or less what came out of the camera.

Now that you mention that, I really wished I had a camera the day the staff at the Sheraton were going through their emergency drill practice. It was awesome to see the teams of cooks, waiters, clerks -all with their respective uniforms- divided into teams and with banners and whistles and stuff, crossing the road like a relay race. Awesome. :lol:
