The Abbey of San Galgano is a cistercian abbey, located to thirty kilometers from Siena, in the city of Chiusdino. The site consists in a hermitage (Montesiepi Rotonda) and from the great abbey, now completely ruined and reduced to only walls.

Nevertheless the abbey of St. Galgano is not left in total decay, this abbey is the destination  of tourist flow and the place is maintained by the confraternity who is dealing. To make this shot I made 7 brackets exposures using a ND64 filter to remove people moving in the church



I make a digital blending between the images discarding only a couple of too light frames, using luminosity masks, I adjusted the highlights and darks, some points of the abbey were very dark so with my panel I launched dodge and burn to lighten or darken the image at the points that I wanted

After adding a little ‘to contrast with the midtones masks, I stepped details and sharpen in the frame. As the last adjustments I set the color cast lowering some blue saturation in the clouds.  I hope you find this information useful, if you have any suggestions write to me, I love always hear you

Last of the pictures, I think 🙂 of  the series of shots taken along the walls of Dubrovnik, in this angle the walls were quite low so I tried to give the final image a vacuum down perspective. Picture taken entirely by free hand I was technically unable to put my tripod on the walls, I made 5 exposure brackets that I merged using Luminosity Masks, but I used it only 4 because being in favor of the last light was too overexposed.

It continues the series of my pictures taken during my stay on the enchanting Lake Bled. In addiction on the beauty of composition of elements that this lake has to offer, the sunsets that can be seen in these place is really  among the bests I ever seen. This HDR was taken from the lake in the evening after a shooting day of many photos in the hours before around the lake.
