The Best Viewpoint of Rizal Monument

September 7, 2016

The monument was constructed made of bronze and granite (1912) by Swiss Sculptor Richard Kissling. The Philippine National Hero Monument is the most photographed and visited monument. Taken at Rizal Park, Luneta Manila August 1,2016.

From the best viewpoint must be at  frontal view but I’ve spotted something unpleasant upon taking few snapshots, the building behind the monument at the right side (Torre De Manila) is completely ruining the landmark itself. To compare 2 photos taken at the same scene and the same subject. Of course I want it to come out at its best to achieve a good result.

Check the photos from above and below, you can spot the difference . My problem here is on how to hide the building behind it? Nevermind about some amount of controversy about the construction of the building, it was already there. Here’s I’m pointing the best location and convenient position to get a good viewpoint, different position at the same scene.

From the first photo above, thriving on such photography challenge, I’ve avoided to snap it in front,  getting to the right side with a bit distance will give a good result even though taken at dusk and you can see the black clouds at the background.

To get the precise effect I’ve been looking for, sooner, I get back to the same location at different time of the day to shoot again.  Whew ! Right time of the day simply offers more stunning scenes and photographic opportunities.
