French Colonial Pool and Patio Area
Here we are for the first in a series on the historic and majestic Sofitel Metropole in Hanoi. This pool was magical. But then again, everything at this hotel appears to be magical because of all the synergistic French Colonial energy. What I did for this shot was take three different shots with the intent to use Photoshop to stitch them into a panoramic later. Then, on the cutting room floor, I actually decided to cut off the shot on the left and only use two of them, eschewing the symmetrical view in favor of this, which cuts out the unimportant and leaves us with what truly matters (the pool and the patio staircase on the right).
