The view from the Rialto bridge in Venice. Rialto Bridge is one of the most busiest and visited in the lagoon city, between gondolas and boats passing under it, even the bridge itself is always full of people practically at all hours of the day, but with a little patience a space to take pictures is always free 🙂
Compared with the other photos called  “Venice Moving” I changed the type of movement moving from a movement of gondolas due to the wave motion to a movement of passage in the canal under Rialto
I took this picture with a series of long exposures and a nd 3 stop ND filter. Among the various results I particularly liked this with movements clearly visible unlike other light trails


This is a single exposure work, I make the first changes with the luminosity of the store lights, decreasing the effect. With a brush and using a new layer I replied the original color above the light trail of the boats to makethem more visible, then I changed the layer mode soft light to give a lighter effect
I fixed contrast using luminosity masks applied to lights, darks and midtones, using my panel I launched details and  dodge and burn to lighten the darker part of the image and softy lighten the buildings
I fixed the color cast and I add some warm/pink filter to give a different look at the image. As final step I applied a small vignette to the frame
As always I hope you will find this info usefull. I’m always happy to ear it from you!
