Great set of photos I really love vibrant colours you managed to get. Did you post process the images to do this? If so what did you do to them?

Thanks for the comments.

@jameswilby5: I processed from RAW. Since these were shot in harsh sunlight, I had to do a lot of highlight recovery and lifting of shadows. I also tend to increase contrast.

After this process, the colours are often far from natural. A B&W conversion can rescue some of these. Sometimes getting a shot in tough lighting and trying to recover it in Lightroom is the only way.

Those are really awesome photos! It's quite an interesting place...I went on that tour last year, and it was definitely one of the better ones I went on. That and the Cu Chi Tunnels. Did you make it up to Halong Bay?
