Dusk in the port of Limassol, with the cranes and some shadowy ships moored

Strolling in the port

A port, from its own nature, is an interesting place. Ships, people, cars, cranes, buildings, an open sky and, of course, water dominating the place. It might not be the cleanest nor the most inviting of water to swim, but we are not in a port to swim, right?

Most of the days the weather was pretty good, with hardly any clouds on it, which is a bit boring for me. However there were some rainy days. I don’t know if the word “rainy” can describe correctly those days, since the falling rain was so sudden, intense and heavy that at least one time I thought I would be able to swim instead of walk in the street.

Both photos on this page were taken in Limassol (Lemesos in Greek) port, 2 months ago. I wanted the “One more from the port” to be more dramatic so I increased the contrast of the sky and the clarity of the clouds. On the other hand I wanted the “Dusk in the port” to be more soothing. So I kept the contrast of the sky in normal limits, while I increased the contrast of the sea with some touch in the details by increasing the clarity and sharpness.
