The People of Tây Bắc
For a different look, and in quite a departure from my usual travel documentary style of photography, I’ve tried my hand at “enhancing” some of the photographs made in Viet Nam’s northwest region; predominantly in the weekly ethnic markets of Bac Ha, Coc Ly, and Can Cau, including a few in and near Sa Pa, the famous hill-station.
The Tây Bắc (meaning “Northwest”) region is one of the regions of Vietnam, located in the mountainous northwestern part of the country. It consists of six provinces, which include the province of Lào Cai.
I’ve used the Sepia Glow recipe (along with some adjustments) in Color Efex Pro 4 software.
