Colour it Blue

This October, Mumbai’s seen the hottest temperatures for this time of the year with daytime seeing us boil in the high 30s (almost touching 40 degrees C) .  But I suppose this was to be expected with the denudation of Bombay’s leafy canopy when it became more concrete than jungle in its transformation to Mumbai.


The skies have been a pale blue with a distinct haze that makes it impossible to see anything across the harbour so I decided to add a little blue and make the picture more interesting.


 Here’s the original untouched picture which looks dull and gloomy with a distinct haze hovering over the buildings that look grey and miserable.

And  here’s the touched up picture with more blue.

What do you think? Isn’t the blue sky better than a pale one?
