Davao on Post

Shot atop Marco Polo Davao's 14th floor.
Using my Nikon D90 DSLR and a handy Canon A2200 powershot point-and-shooter. I managed to sneak in some street shots of Davao City's Central Business District and did some post-processing tweaks to come out with these images.
C.M. Recto Street, formerly known as Claveria Street, one of the oldest street in Davao City. Vintage 70s processing style.
San Pedro Street, along with Claveria is one of the city's oldest street. Another vintage post-processing style. I  desaturated the colors of the photos.
Monument of Peace and Unity and the San Pedro Cathedral. I put flares to make somewhat a
sun in the right corner of the photo and put some drama.
When the Mayor steps out from the City Hall building this is the view that will greet her.
Along Millenium Park you can see the vantage points of two great landmarks, the Ateneo de Davao to the left and Marco Polo at the right. Put some textures in the photos

Roxas, Claveria intersection, this is also Davao City's designated freedom park, I was trying to achieve an 80s style vintage photo.

The Oboza House, a structure built in 1929 by the first municipal mayor of Davao, Alfonso Oboza. Now a French restaurant, the structure lovingly preserved by the new owners. Took this shot while riding a taxi.
A view of Jacinto Extension, I was visiting my friend whose office was located at the fifth floor at the tallest building in the street and managed to snap this shot, post-processed it.
