My family and I just returned from a short vacation in Puerto Rico. We stayed in the San Juan area, but we took a trip to the south side of the island where we visited the city of Ponce. Ponce was an interesting experience because non of my family speaks Spanish (we can read some) and there was very little English spoken in Ponce. We didn’t have a good map of Ponce and the city has very tight streets. We spent some time in the town square where I took this picture of the Ponce Cathedral. The church itself is on the National Register of Historic Places as “Cathedral Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe of Ponce”.

Processing consisted of conversion to black & white with some perspective correction. The sky was quite blue so I darkened it during the conversion. The building was a light grey color although in this shot it looks more white. I might try some curves work to bring down the brightness of the building a bit to see what it looks like.

Comments welcome!
