Giuseppe Sapori - The Holy Way

For someone, it may sound strange, but when I photograph my city it means I’ve been short supply of photos to work ūüėÄ
I’m actually waiting for the next trip to make some new shots, in the meantime I go to Rome that always offers great locations to be photographed, one of this in my opinion is precisely the “Via Sacra“, located between the Coliseum square and the Imperial Forums was in Antiquity is the most important street of ancient Rome

I take¬†this shot after the closing of the “roman forum” to get fewer tourist on the road, the summer sunset time allows you to reconcile a beautiful location with a less busy street than usual with the sunset in front of you

WORKFLOW EXPLANATION

I take several shots during the sunset, I make a blend using luminosity masks. After this, I photomerged the resulting frame with another shot with more foreground to englarge the view of the viewer

I launched dodge and burn to increse light on the rocks in the foreground and to darken some part of the sky. After applied details and sharpen using my panel, I launched orton effect to increase glows and darks

I used a warm filter in the sky and a LAB Color in the whole frame. As the final touch I increase contrasts applied to luminosity masks and a vignette to emphasize the central light
