If you have an interest in photography and visiting edinburgh, then clicking photographs from the top of the Calton Hill is the must thing to do in Edinburgh.

Hey Folks,
I am publishing this post after a short break and this time I come up with  City View Photography Tips from my Scotland’s travel diary. This Photograph I have taken at the top of Calton Hill Edinburgh, Scotland. Calton Hill is one of the busiest tourist spots of Edinburgh for sightseeing. If you are a tourist then surely you will like visiting there. It’s not only beautiful but eye pleasing. Breeze at this Edinburgh’s attraction will surely make you feel a deep sense of relaxation.

Every corner of Calton Hill Edinburgh has a quite different view, which makes it an experimental spot for beginners in photography like me. So have a look at how I have clicked this photography. The day I visited there was a warm day, I visited there just before evening. When I saw the city view imagination works and I wanted to click a shot as in my mind, but the lighting was not exactly like my imagination. So ultimately I have edited this photograph too to bring my imagination to reality (as I have mentioned in my one of my previous post ). I have not clicked photograph in raw image, so after editing, I have not got the finishing but still, I got the image pretty close as per imagination
