Giuseppe Sapori - Stars of Rome

Fori Imperiali¬†in Rome offers one of the most beautiful views of the Eternal City, especially if surrounded by a stars in the sky. Taking this photo was challenging more for the cold that did that day ūüėĬ†I made this picture¬†from the terrace of the Campidoglio, taken¬†7¬†exposures for shooting Fori Imperiali in¬†the lower scene. With the 7 exposures¬†was necessary to capture the¬†best dynamic range present in the landscape and also for the lights and colors.

What about stars?

For the stars I made a single more shot at 30′ and ¬†ISO 6400 that ¬†then I combined with the other 7. The rest was a job editing with layer masks the starry sky¬†out with the rest of the shot. Particularly challenging was the color management, there was much in the dark blue in the photo, some of which I deleted the channel mixer to camera raw¬†desaturating part of the blue to even the horizon line with that of the starry sky
