I am back from my long weekend spent in Veneto in the north of Italy. Saturday I spent the afternoon in the beautiful town of Bassano del Grappa, a place that I already knew and that last year I photographed under the stars over Christmas. The little city of Bassano del Grappa is one of my favorites in Veneto and this year, before taking a tour of the beautiful Christmas markets, I made osome shots to the famous Alpine Bridge (Ponte degli Alpini).
When I come to the bridge I found some work in progress from the non-visible part of this picture so I decided to give it an alternative shot on the river banks. It was enough delve a little bit at the bottom and climb over the fence to get somewhere in this picturesque small rocks bank that looks at the bridge, everything else did the sky and the city of Bassano 🙂
I applied the Focus Stacking in the whole picture, putting at first to fire the rocks in the foreground, then the more distant and finally the horizon of the bell tower. If you want more information on the focus stacking I recommend you go there to read this article on 500px ISO written by Max Foster. I applied some variation to thist utorials for every focused image I did 3 expoures Bracketing, in various moments of the evening, In this way I had the availability of more overexposed and underexposed picture for contrast, exposure and details editing.
