Giuseppe Sapori - Rome Urbe

View of St. Peter Basilica by Sant’Angelo bridge. For me this is one of the top spots location in Rome to photograph. All of Castel Sant’Angelo area in general is one of my favorites of my city, the reflections which at sunset are located along the Tiber River, the last lights of the sky before sunset and the first lights of the city. I take 5 bracketed shots with tripod on the large handrail of the bridge during the blue hour

WORKFLOW EXPLANATION

I blended the exposures with luminosity masks, I used midtones mask to create some contrasts after the blend. I applied dodge and burn tool over the bridge to give more light on it and to darken more the sky. With the help of hue/saturation tool I decreased the yellows over the lights and make some color corrections in the image (increased blues).

I increased some details and sharpness in the whole frame using TTS Fast Panel, also applied a little Orton Effect. As final I adjust the highlighs and contrast again using luminosity masks applied to curves. It was a fast and easy edit in this photo, I hope that you find this useful, and you and what would you have done? Write it, I always love to hear from it from you

I am in the same location of Agios Ioannis in Skopelos. As I said I did a lot of photos here and for a few weeks I will post only about this place 🙂

Here I was always close to the Agios Ioannis beach where I took several photos to the coast of the beach focusing on the rocks near the foreground. In that morning I was lucky benefiting from the cloudy sky in the morning there was a beautiful diffused light over the entire area

 

WORKFLOW EXPLANATION

For first thing I prepared all 5 of my exposures captured in photoshop and I started working them using TTS Fast Panel and Luminosity Masks to capture the entire dynamic range. I discarded the most overexposed shot and lowered the lights on the rocks  with luminosity masks applied the curves tool. I made the same thing to increase highlights in the sky.

After I applied a Dodge and Burn tool, to make it more homogeneous light and to finish the work previously done with luminosity masks, same with Dodge and Burn I made some light effects on the lower rocks in the foreground. Using the Fast Panel I launched the effects to enhance and sharpen the details, then Lab Color to give the image more vivid aspect. I increased yellow tonalities checking the effect on the bottom left rocks, I applied at the end a little Orton Effect, contrast and vignetting to accentuate the effects of light in the central part of the frame
