This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel
A scene of the tiny village of Manarola on the Cinque Terre coast of Italy. I camped on this spot for some time waiting for the right balance of light as the sun set. I was rewarded with many great shots of the late afternoon and even in moonlight. This long exposure captures the essence of the village with the locals all joining for a party near the boat ramp.

Photo Tip: The best building shots balance light from three different sources: skylight, streetlights, and lights from within the building.
