Giuseppe Sapori - Steps on the Clouds

The Metropol Parasol in Seville, as I write some time ago on my facebook page this gigantic wooden structure was one of the key points of my visit in the beautiful Spanish city of Seville. The Metropol Parasol stands at the center of a large square near the city center where it’s possible to go upstairs with an elevator and then walk on the wooden frame to admire the beautiful panorama of the city.

That day I was particularly lucky because during the dusk the sky becomes cloudy, the right conditions to take my shots, between clouds and filtered light of sunset.
I take this picture from 5 exposures, I had wait a bit ‘on the steps to wait for the passage of people/tourist on the bridge of Metropol Parasol… despite the time was still a lot, however I realized my series of exposures without much trouble 🙂 I worked the images almost completely with the use of Luminance Masks and Camera Raw.

Giuseppe Sapori - Star Tree

The Circus Maximus needs no introduction, is an ancient Roman circus used for horse racing and other shows. Today is a giant lawn with the stands.Passing several times over there I realized that the area is quite dark, especially in the middle of the Circus Maxiumus of the lawn there is a very low brightness, so I decided to make an attempt to photograph the stars, trying to believe it is managed well. What you see the beyond the tree you can see the lights of the city and the ancient Roman ruins.


But as I took this photo?

Like all the shots I had to help myselfwith a double exposure and especially with a click using the technique Exposing to the right where it was however necessary a big job of brightness and colors.

Giuseppe Sapori - Dark Passage

To access to the upper floor of the inside of  Hagia Sophia basilica, you have to go through this hall that leads to the stairs. The light reflecting off the window in front of the chandelier and soft lighting makes in this room  an enchanting play of light. I made this HDR handheld because in Hagia Sophia you can not bring any kind of stands inside. I had to wait several minutes for anyone who does not pass in this room, it is a must to go upstairs.
