    Hi,

    Here's a serie of photos I took last weekend. The "Delta de Tigre" is a delta at the River Plate, a few minutes from Buenos Aires City. It's the only delta in the world created by a river (the Parana River) into another river (the River Plate). It's a beautiful place to visit and relax, and it has become an important tourist atraction, where tourists and locals enjoy a pleasant day surrounded by nature and the "slow life" of the islanders.
    On the islands there are cabins for rent, hotels, restaurants and campings. People can get there by boat or waterbus, much like the vaporettos of Venice, Italy. These are the most picturesque form of transport at the delta, and the subject of my picture #2.
    All photos were taken with my Olympus PEN E-PM2 and the zuiko 45mm lens, and then processed at Lightroom. Hope you enjoy the trip!

    Thank you Gus! I'm glad you like them! I always shoot in RAW, I always try to ETTR (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exposing_to_the_right) and then I process my photos in Lightroom following the workflow of Jose María Mellado, a great spanish photographer, writer and teacher. His web is http://www.fotoaltacalidad.com and here is a video where he explains some of his workflow https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ASerfqtKv8 (he's using PS CS6, but the controls are the same in lightroom. Also, the video is in spanish, but I'm sure you'll follow the action because you can see the screen capture and understand what he's doing).
    Hope this answers your question! Thanks again for stopping by, and for you great feedback!

    Best regards,

    Mariano

    Thanks for the answer. Good thing I am a Spanish speaker. In fact, I was born in Tucuman. :)
