Giuseppe Sapori - Mooring before the night

Still Malcesine… still the lake, still Garda. As you can imagine in the day in this town, I really made a lot of picutres, also helped by overcast skies, with cloudy and foggy. No, it is not the weather forecast… but the weather changed so suddenly with the sky and all the colors that surround the lake. This is one of the many marinas that find space in the Venetian resort, next to these piers a tiny quay to moor fishing boats. This is a single shot, I wanted to take the seagull flying at the top to give a more complete photographic composition. Edited entirely with camera raw I finally stepped colors using the Lab Coloring technique.

Giuseppe Sapori - Brenta Reflections

 

This is in Padova, Veneto near the train station. What you see below is the river Brenta, the same that passes for Bassano del Grappa in my previous post. On the left, the glass building is the monument to the fallen of September 11. Transiting through these streets I loved the colors that offered the sunlight filtering through the windows of the building and the beautiful clear sky that created those beautiful reflections in the water. For this pic i take three exposures edited with layer masks, used mainly to lighten water.

Sagrada Familia

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A few weeks ago I was in Barcelona and I could not take pictures and post the Sagrada Familia. What to tell you guys… as Roman, I’ve seen hundreds of beautiful basilicas and churches but I realized that Sagrada Familia is definitely  Read more...in the top 5 of the most beautiful churches of all times. It ‘an immense work, shining and colorful, an explosion of details, colors and unimaginable magnitude. Trust me that any picture will not portray in all its beauty.

About the realization of the image of Sagrada Familia I am totally committed to the luminance masks, I cleared the bottom using the overexposed image and darkened instead the upper using the underexposed one.

With this post to wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas and thank you all for the support you have provided me during this year.  🙂

Coastal Prism

Giuseppe Sapori - Coastal Prism

The Sorrento Peninsula in all its beauty, to admire it in it’s best you have to stay long the coast. The cities in this area offer so much beautiful places to see but the true visual spectacle can be found only along the cliff. Finding the location for this photo has not been easy at all, in fact I had access to a beautiful hotel in which I will not name, who had a fantastic terrace across the reef and where it was easy to take pictures in complete comfort.

Lake Path

Giuseppe Sapori - Lake Path

Lake Bled taken from the jetty in the east side. I say it now, I replaced the original jetty in the image with this one you can see, the original one was not attractive at all, it was too short and flat. The rest of the landscape was pretty but it needed depth that I was able to give the picture thanks to the replacement of the dock. As you can see from the before after I have attached below other major edits were performed on colors and to the water. I made this HDR from three shots, I replaced the dock and worked with hue/saturation to bring him a shade similar to that of the rest of the image. For the rest I uniform all through the masks luminance and contrast.

Return to Assisi

Tags : 

This HDR shows the tower bell of Assisi  located of the top of the city. I took this picture in a different time of day last year, you can find the photo in the section on portfolio / landscapes. I am very fascinated by the sight that can be seen from this Umbrian town like houses that distinguish it. In this point can be seen the entire lower section of the city including the Umbrian countryside and all the surrounding towns.
