Giuseppe Sapori - Misty trails

As you easily guess¬†we are in Venice ūüôā There are¬†many years that I was missing from this amazing and beautiful city,¬†that always leaves me literally speechless. I went back to Venice with this picture in mind, a light trail of the passage of boats under the Accademia Bridge. The Accademia Bridge although it isn’t a historic bridge (is newly built entirely of wood) is a necessary step to connect across the south of Venice, Sestriere Dorsoduro, with the district of San Marco. From the Accademia Bridge¬†you can admire one of the best views of Venice, the “Canal Grande” with all its wonderful sights and in the horizon the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute. That day there was a lot of fog in the city and although the dome at the bottom is a bit hidden by a foggy effect,¬†in my opinion, this gives an interesting landscape of Venice out of the ordinary.

To realize this image, I started taking photos just before the blue hour to finish to make the last shots in the dark late, I made 12 shots (some discarted) with various exposures that helped me to take various boat light trails. Then I started from a clean light and color shot and then, gradually, I added the other exposures as layers in Photoshop to add trails on the water.

Below Rialto

I have been many times in Venice but I never managed to take a photo that satisfied me of Rialto‘s bridge. Below Rialto is the right angle that I always wanted to give to this bridge, taking the image from the landing dock for gondolas.

Venice high tide beginnings

Tags : 

The phenomenon of high water in Venice is common in winter and autumn. This photo shows a principe of raising of the water level. Obviously I could shoot this photo with confidence as the water level still rather low. I processed this picture with Photomatix from 3 exposures. I used Photoshop with layer masks to emphasize the colors and details stand out in some areas of the photo.
