Every shot I took was not hampered by haze, pollution or any of the atmospheric texture found pretty much everywhere else I’ve ever been. I remember taking low angle night shots of the Rector’s Palace on my hands an knees in the city streets. When I was done I was as clean as when I started. That’s never happened before.
Croatia is simply a very clean and unblemished country, which is especially inspiring considering their recent history. Dubrovnik was the cleanest though, just the definition of purity. The light is outstanding. I highly suggest getting up as the sun rises to grab shots of the empty streets cloaked in the warmth of early morning light. Sunset is just as good, although much busier with locals and tourists.
