Hotel Views That Will Make You Gasp for Air!

with one comment

This slideshow on CNN’s website based around stunning photos of hotel views is practically unreal. Imagine yourself standing on a balcony with a nice, refreshing drink in your hand and watching the sun set with that special someone…or your pet cat. Whatever the case may be, place yourself in that ultimate fantasy setting where reality is a thing of the past and your entire atmosphere is beyond beautiful. This best sums of my reaction after seeing 7 of the world’s most breathtaking hotel views.

Each photo is perfectly composed and the setting of each picture really draws you in. I really think had it not been for the photographer taking such amazing shots, the impact of the slideshow would not have been as effective as it was by looking at how vibrant all the colors are and the way the natural environment plays a crucial role with each hotel establishment.

Another good note was the use of text at the bottom of the page to give a brief synopsis of each hotel, its view, the history behind the city/hotel and any other information that the viewer might want to know or didn’t know about these specific destinations. Pictures can truly tell a thousand words, and I feel as journalists, we each owe it to our readers/viewers to provide them with the best quality in photography or video for the most part.

A topic such as 9/11 is so riveting, but do you honestly think that without well-composed pictures, the world would be able to feel the pain that those people felt on that day? Pictures invite us into someone else’s world with each glance we take at them. This example really proves that a well-composed shot will take you away from your surroundings and place you into a different mind-frame. I guess that’s why books have pictures huh?
