Giuseppe Sapori - Golden Darkness

 

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 ūüôā

The Seventeenth century hall

Giuseppe Sapori - the seventeenth century hall

This is the hall of the seventeenth century in the Royal Palace of Naples. The Royal Palace of Naples has been a residence of the Bourbons during the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. What you see represented in this picture is one of the main halls from which you accessed the Hall of Viceroy, inside the main painting is “Il ritorno del figliol prodigo”. Taking this HDR was not simple at all, it was not allowed to use a tripod inside (as often happens in these places), so I had to take this final image from a single exposure keeping in mind the high level of contrast in the room, the low luminosity and the midday sun outside filtering through the windows.

Giuseppe Sapori - Autumn on the river

Image of Tiberina island on the Tevere river after one week from the raise of the  water level. In the central area you can still see some traces of sewage sludge.
I took this HDR placing my camera on a small tripod on the railing that overlooks the river. HDR made from 3 exposures (+2, 0, -2). I used the shot underexposed exposure to remove some overexposed areas of the image, then using filter gaussian blur I smooth the water to increase the effect.
