I have been photographing Valencia over a period of years from numerous trips, Valencia has almost become a home from home with cheap air flight, while the cheapness of the air travel has made it good value to visit this city the baggage restrictions make it awkward to bring my larger DSLRS. On this trip I opted to bring just a compact camera rather than rely on a mobile phone, mobile phone photography has improved massively over the years however I am a little disappointed when I see the results on a large screen especially photographs taken at night.

So this trip I used my new Nikon 1 J5 with the old style 10-30mm lens from a Nikon 1 J1, the photographs were shot in RAW and then edited in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 (PC/Mac) additional editing was done using Nik Filters Analog Effects. While the night shots had noise in them it was way better than anything my smartphone could manage. I was also able to share images on the cameras memory card on my social media sites via the built in Wifi and an app on my iPhone while out and about.
