Plan your travel as best you can to make the most of a given location, especially if you want a great photograph that WOWs.

The first photo here is taken at dusk. The lights of the city are on and it give the photo a lot more pop than this photo taken late in the day.

This morning I woke up and took the same location early in the morning.

As you can see the same location looks quite different at different times of day.

As a storyteller, which photo best helps you tell the story when you first think of Lisbon, Portugal. By the end of this week of teaching storytelling in Lisbon I might pick a different photo than when I started, but now I have options.

Here is another perspective from the same place I was shooting the other photos. Here it is at dusk and here it is just an hour earlier.

I liked the location so much I made a panoramic of the spot.  Click on it to see it larger.
