The church of St. Gaetan in the heart of Munich. This church, in German “Theatinerkirche” is located in Odeonsplatz and is one of the most beautiful churches in Munich, striking the very altar worked with the twisted columns and the light that filters through the dome at the top. The domes of the bell towers reach 70 meters in height and their scrolls are inspired by the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute in Venice, another beautiful church which I recommend you see (is located near the railway station): D

Sagrada Familia

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A few weeks ago I was in Barcelona and I could not take pictures and post the Sagrada Familia. What to tell you guys… as Roman, I’ve seen hundreds of beautiful basilicas and churches but I realized that Sagrada Familia is definitely  Read more...in the top 5 of the most beautiful churches of all times. It ‘an immense work, shining and colorful, an explosion of details, colors and unimaginable magnitude. Trust me that any picture will not portray in all its beauty.

About the realization of the image of Sagrada Familia I am totally committed to the luminance masks, I cleared the bottom using the overexposed image and darkened instead the upper using the underexposed one.

With this post to wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas and thank you all for the support you have provided me during this year.  🙂

This is the inside of the Basilica of Santa Sabina on the Aventino hill. It is considered one of the most beautiful churches of Rome, located on the top of Aventino hill of Rome certainly more fascinating of all.  Read more...It ‘a very old church and not particularly worked, but to appreciate the perfection and precision of its forms. Taking this photo was not at all easy, first because I had absolutely exploit sunlight that seeped from the large windows to avoid the whole church too dark then, as always, I had to wait for the long lines of tourists all day and all hours are in this church. After a few minutes and a few tips I could work…
For the realization of the final image I use HDR 32-bit technique so then I merged it with part of the exposures made to take advantage of all the available dynamic range.

In this picture we are the whole of the Basilica of St.Antonio into the heart of Sorrento. From the outside this looks like an ordinary church building, outside it is not too obvious about the typical shape of the churches, but inside as well as being beautiful and also reports of considerable lighst shows. I come inside the church for curiosity before dinner time, the church was open and magically there was not even a tourist, so I took advantage of the moment where there was no one, unfortunately, as I said I was going to dinner and I had no tripod with me so I made all from a single exposure, but I think it gave its excellent results the same 🙂

To access to the upper floor of the inside of  Hagia Sophia basilica, you have to go through this hall that leads to the stairs. The light reflecting off the window in front of the chandelier and soft lighting makes in this room  an enchanting play of light. I made this HDR handheld because in Hagia Sophia you can not bring any kind of stands inside. I had to wait several minutes for anyone who does not pass in this room, it is a must to go upstairs.
