Photo of the Day: Picture-Perfect Palawan (El Nido)

The Philippines has tons of beautiful places to go and gorgeous sights to see, all naturally colorful, that it blurs the distinction between edited and unedited photo. Look at this photo, for instance, courtesy of Ei/lys/uh Kyle Corpuz (an explorer and food lover, check her Instagram account, @ek_corpuz). It’s a nice groufie somewhere in El Nido, Palawan. We can all agree that this shot has gone through the normal photo processing; we believe almost all digital cameras/phones nowadays automatically processes the shots. The problem with a lot of Philippine shots, however, is not that the shots are normally processed — the real problem is that the photos don’t capture the real crispness of the colors in real life. You’ll realize this if you go to Palawan or Sagada, or practically in every picture-perfect corner of the Philippines. And the real beauty is watching the Philippines at a different angle, like this photo. It gives a fresh perspective to a wonderful country that we Filipinos see on a daily basis and, as a result, almost always take for granted. Click the photo to enlarge:
