Venice Moving III

Venice Moving III

Tags : 

The view from the Rialto bridge in Venice. Rialto Bridge is one of the most busiest and visited in the lagoon city, between gondolas and boats passing under it, even the bridge itself is always full of people practically at all hours of the day, but with a little patience a space to take pictures is always free ūüôā

Compared with the other photos called¬† “Venice Moving” I changed the type of movement moving from a movement of gondolas due to the wave motion to a movement of passage in the canal under Rialto

I took this picture with a series of long exposures and a nd 3 stop ND filter. Among the various results I particularly liked this with movements clearly visible unlike other light trails

 

WORKFLOW EXPLANATION

This is a single exposure work, I make the first changes with the luminosity of the store lights, decreasing the effect. With a brush and using a new layer I replied the original color above the light trail of the boats to makethem more visible, then I changed the layer mode soft light to give a lighter effect

I fixed contrast using luminosity masks applied to lights, darks and midtones, using my panel I launched details and  dodge and burn to lighten the darker part of the image and softy lighten the buildings

I fixed the color cast and I add some warm/pink filter to give a different look at the image. As final step I applied a small vignette to the frame

As always I hope you will find this info usefull. I’m always happy to ear it from you!

Always from the famous Piazza San Marco, looking at the Grand Canal I take this long exposure from he gondolas dock located in the square

Compared to the previous shot I changed point of view, this is as I mentioned above in the main dock of San Marco, I love the stark contrast of the movements of the boats opposed to the static of the dock

Also here I used a ND64 filter applied to 5 exposures brackets to this shot, to have a  dark sky from the underexposed frame and I very smooth water from the overexposed one

 

WORKFLOW EXPLANATION

I used the most bright image as top layer and applying luminosity masks to have a nice view of long exposure on the sea and on the gondolas,  I lowered the exposure of the sky and part of the water using the darker image

Once this done I applied a warm filter to increase the yellow effect of the sunset decreasing the opacity around 20%. After a use of dodge and burn under the dark areas of the docks I fixed darks and brights using luminosity masks applied to curves

With TTS Fast Panel I fixed details and contrasts, also applying a slight orton effect to the image. I darkened the image and raised the vibrance of the colors excluding the effect from the blue of the gondolas that became too intense

As always I hope you will find this info usefull. I’m always happy to ear it from you!
