As with all travel photography, most of the images are "I was there and I saw that". However, several of these original photographs have won or will win in professional photographic competitions. Once an original image has been identified for competition, additional editing is performed. Several prize winning images are included in various parts of this web page, e.g. see the fine art images and awards.
