Giuseppe Sapori - The ancient way

Even on Dubrovnik walls, when it started the sunset on the way I came across this beautiful view with this bell and a fantastic sun flare, the walls of Dubrovnik offer endless possibilities for photographs along the perimeter of the city.

I made this image from 3 exposures, which combined with the Luminosity Masks and then edited using the Color Lookup technique, if you are interested you can read something about Color Lookup editing in my article on Camerapixo that explains how to do it.

For this image I put the Color Lookup filters as follows:

filmstock_50 set on 35%

fuji aeterna 250D set on 30%

kodak 5218 set on 15%

I also used the inevitable Nik Color Efex Pro to accentuate the yellow of the sunset and give more contrast to the final result


Camera: Nikon D-800

Lens: Nikon 14-24mm f/2,8
