A brighter Laguna

File under: ,

Based upon comments so far, it looks like photo 2 (Hula Laguna) is the front runner to represent Wellington on Gridskipper. I got some feedback about the clouds looking omninously dark, though: this was due to me darkening the photo a little to bring out the lights from the concert and Ferris wheel. I tried a slightly more selective colour adjustment and came up with this version, which I think makes our skies look a little like a pleasant twilight:

Wellington Waterfront: Hula Lagun concert and party
Gridskipper have already mentioned Wellington's challenge, though they've gone ahead and used the standard Cable Car shot for the moment. Unless there are any firm objections to this version of the Hula Laguna picture, I'll go ahead and send it in.

although, just HOW can we compete with Grand Rapids offering this as an incentive:
"...the city of Grand Rapids quadrupled in population, opened six restaurants with 18 Michelin stars between them, and issued coupons for free plastic surgery to all its escort services. "

Tom, time to use your connections with Chow and Mr Chow...

That doesn't say much about their escort services.

Great image - I would be happy to see Wellington represented in this way, full of vitality and life! (as opposed to the nostalgic tourist cart on the hill)

Much better! ...although I did like the swirliness of the clouds. :-)
