Paseo de la Princesa

This shot was taken on some sort of promenade along the shore of old San Juan, just beneath the walls of the old fortress. This definitely is a tour to take, especially when you don't stop at the promenade's "official" endpoint, but go even further: This then leads you to grassy slopes between the ancient walls and the ocean. Hopefully I'll manage to post a picture of these soon...

Ok, maybe I've pushed a little too hard on the colours here, but it was so incredibly hot that the path seemed to glow while the sea still looked refreshingly cool. Anyway, post-processing is a combination of local contrast enhancements and tone mapping, as well as selective relighting for getting the clouds more dramatic. See the original for comparison.
