Manila, Philippines

The Philippines is an archipelago consisting of more than 7,000 islands. As such, the diversity of nature and manmade attractions are plenty and breath-taking. From the buzz of the capital, Manila, to the serenity of a pristine sandbar, Philippines has it all for the photographer.

Divisoria Market is a cacophony of color and sound. A rich hunting ground for street photographers, the streets are always bustling with activity. Located in the middle of Chinatown in Manila, the colorful street stalls and equally colorful people energized the atmosphere and created a buzz in the air. The flexible zoom range of the FE 24-70mm F2.8 G Master Lens met the challenges of Divisoria Lane with gusto, taking in the fast-moving action, wide colorful scenes, and close-ups. Zoomed out at 24 mm, the incredible resolution of the lens glass etched out all the details of every furrowed face and crumbling building in each frame.
