Hannah's Thoughts:

Divisoria Market is a cacophony of colour and sound. A rich hunting ground for street photographers, the streets are always bustling with activity. Located in the middle of Chinatown in Manila, the colourful street stalls and equally colourful people energised the atmosphere and created a buzz in the air. The flexible zoom range of the FE 24-70mm F2.8 G Master lens met the challenges of Divisoria Lane with gusto, taking in the fast-moving action, wide colourful scenes and close-ups. Zoomed out at 24 mm, the incredible resolution of the lens glass etched out all the details of every furrowed face and crumbling buildings in each frame.
