In the previous post I show you one of Busan spots that really impressed me and it is the main center activity of the city, but it is not the only one. Busan has also another very interesting city heart near the harbour

This is a view from the Busan Tower a a 120-metre-high tower at Yongdusan Park. I like very much the view from this tower because it benefit from a great view over the sea and from the proximity of other buildings

When I take this shot I come before the dusk and go upstairs still with sunlight, I cecked my favourite view and waited the right mix between golden and blue hour (i really love this kind of lights mix), usually during this time the citylights starts and at the same time the sky offers beautiful colours

I took this photo through the glass of the Busan Tower windows, using a suction cup to attach to the glass to avoid internal reflections, I captured some bracketed shots that I used to blend the final frame especially for what concerns the highlights


WORKFLOW EXPLANATION

I blended two shots for this image, I worked mainly on a shot and I used a underexposed exposure to decrease the highlights using digital blending with TTS Pro, after this I straighten the horizon and fixed color cast

I still decreased the highlights using color range funcion and applying the selection to luminosity masks. I removed some dust spots over the window using clone stamp tool, after I increased details and colours vividness

Using hue/saturation I decreased the blues on the left part of the sky that was originally too much strong. I set contrast and shadows as fnal touch

I really hope you will find this usefull. Love to ear this from you!

This photo was taken on Easter Eve, I was at Amalfi, one of Italy‘s most beautiful cliffs, along the Cinque Terre. Amalfi is a very turistic small town, there is an adjacent port where you can visit all the islands of the Amalfi Coast. The view that can be seen from these places is absolutely stunning, this is why this whole area is one of my favorite destinations in Italy.

I went to Amalfi on the first day, by bus on a road along the cliff  very impressive (I do not recommend at all to travel by car), the streets are narrow and full of cars and during the holidays parking and traffic can be a real nightmare! After doing a quick walk in the city center while waiting for the sunset I took pictures of the beginning of the golden hour at the port of Amalfi, it characterized not only by a picturesque view of the cliff  but from these gigantic artificial reefs. I was very lucky because that afternoon I found a sky that opened after a rainy morning. I tried to compose the shot more foreground to give a more detailed perspective, a series of 5 shots exposure entirely edited with luminance masks that you can easily find the free downloads section.

Giuseppe Sapori - Rainbow OvercasstI took this photo in Hvar from the terrace of my hotel. What you see in this picture is the left side of the main harbour of the island, I made this from a single image, it is a single shot taken without a tripod leaning on a railing of the terrace. I mainly worked with the luminance masks and the Camera Raw Filter in  Photoshop CC to lighten / darken image elements.HDR

I’m back here after an August spent in continuous travel. This picture was taken in Split along the beach beside the harbour, to be honest I was making a drink at a bar
