Vanxim – pronounced “Vaanshi(m)” – is a speck of an island in Goa within a stone’s throw of another island, Divar. It is the last unmolested piece of real estate remaining in Goa, but plans are afoot to cure that situation.
In the second and third images below, notice the difference in colour rendition. It can be partly attributed to the manner in which Canon and Zeiss handle colour.
The prayer in Konkani inscribed on the façade says: Have Mercy on Us, O Protector of the World’s Indigent.
Was the Canon picture taken earlier in the morning than the Zeiss?
No, the two images (2nd and 3rd) were taken within 6-8 minutes of one another. However, the cloud cover – and hence the lighting – changed during that time.
I love the cross picture – you have conveyed great stillness and beauty and the object just pops from the picture.
As for the color rendition, it’s quite amazing how much more the German (?) design brings out. It’s almost as if the Canon optic is a stranger to the yellow part of the spectrum. The Zeiss version speaks to me, though I assume it’s made in the far east like everything else.
