Here we are finally with a new image after a period of absence due to the restrictions that we all know by now. I return to post with a location that I particularly love in my city while waiting to plan the next outdoor trips

After a rainy afternoon the sky opened with beautiful colours I took the opportunity to go out to shoot and find some interesting alternative perspective of Castel Sant’Angelo like this one taking advantage of the puddle on the foreground

I made this shot with a focus stacking between the elements around the puddle and the castle with its bridge, I then joined a further shot to correct the perspective of the bridge and the castle


I take single shots for this focus stacking, I opened the image with camera raw and i opened in Photohope where i blended the images using auto blend layers functions, than i correct the perspective using the other image of the Castel Sant’Angelo

With the complete image obtained i started edting using TTS Pro to enhance details, colours and contrast. I added a dark orton effect to create a powerful light and at the same time darken the scene

I added a smart warm filter to increase the yellow lights in the scene and I corrected the lights in the sky to enhance the clouds.

As final step i brushed the puddle wih a yellow brush to give it more light energy
