Anyone who has been to Venice knows this bridge it is one of the most famous bridges in the city and one of the most photographed locations in Venice
In all the times I’ve been to Venice I photographed this bridge many times far and wide but today I propose a shot from a slightly different spot from the usual
Taking advantage of the framing in this photograph helps to create a different perspective than usual, initially I tried to do the focus stacking between the two perspectives but after a few attempts I preferred to keep the foreground blurred to give more prominence to the bridge at the bottom
I captured the shots in order to create a focus stacking image between the framing and the bridge, but as mentioned above, I come back to my steps thus preferring a blurred framing to a photo in focus at every point.
I have already used a similar technique in this post with good results. So I edited only one image using to fix the sky highlights and to recover some shadows
I used the glow tool to lighten the bridge applying to the layer a gaussian blur filter, I also used the orton effect to create a soft look on the main subject. To increase the yellow tone look I applied a warm filter to luminosity masks using highlights
I increased details and as final step I added with Color Efex Pro filter “darken lighten center” to better focus the viewer’s eye to the bridge
I always hope you will find this usefull! I love to ear that from you!
