Sorrento Coast

This is the sunset in Sorrento, Italy before it suddenly started pouring. Sorrento is a beautiful town and there were no shortage of photography opportunities.

I believe this one was created from 7 exposures. I do the merge to 32-bit HDR and process in LR5 and PS. Finishing touches done in Photo Efex.

The main thing I learned about visiting Italy is that its a waste to spend precious time and money visiting museums. The cities are virtually walking museums in themselves. Case in point is this mural painted on a Roman building. Or just step inside a church and you're surrounded by more artwork than you can shake a stick at.

This image is a single-exposure processed solely in LR5. I noticed only after my first pass that there is a tree growing out of the window on the lower-left.

Rays over Florence

Taken from a hill-top Tuscan villa right before sunset. This was a single exposure so I was really excited that I was able to pull out the detail in the sun rays. That dynamic range offsets the pain of having to deal with huge D800 files.

Quintessential Venice

While the family was having dinner, I quietly snuck away to capture a few shots of the Venice Canal. This is an HDR from 5 exposures with finishing touches applied in Color Efex.

Really wish I had written down the names of these places as I visited. I am fairly certain this particular church was from Venice. I just liked how the starkly saturated reds of the columns contrasted with the relatively subtle coloring of the rest of the interior. I think I processed this one completely in Lightroom (which is not unusual these days).

Cinque Terre

I knew that the Cinque Terre was going to be the highlight of my Italy vacation, but the beauty of the place went above and beyond my wildest expectations. I'm convinced that when I go back to Italy, I will be booking a solid one week stay there. Unfortunately my visit this time around was way too short. 

This is a pano from 6 or 7 images. Best viewed large!

Saint Mark's Basilica

Photo from the fantastic interior of St Mark's Basilica. Although packed with tourists, it was quite an amazing sight to see.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Wanted to take a short break from posting Italy pictures and bring you one of my more traditional shots from NYC. This one from the theater district is really my first serious attempt at using luminosity masking to blend images. It seems like the technique is all the rage now so I've been trying to incorporate it within my workflow. It's definitely powerful but difficult to master.

Our tour guide told us that some people come to Capri, Italy just to see these rocks. I'm not so sure if I would agree but they are pretty cool nonetheless. All I did with this one was apply one of Trey Ratcliff's Lightroom presets. I just love to go through those and find to find just the right one that makes the photo look interesting.

Monterossa - Cinque Terre

I so wanted to swim into this cave just off the shore of "new" Monterossa in Cinque Terre. But alas, I just ran out of time.

Capri from Above

We were treated to an amazing view atop Capri where we reached through a surprisingly relaxing chair lift. The feeling of being up there was truly indescribably. I've never seen such natural beauty as this. Capri is famous for its many grottos perched along the coastline. I imagine thats what all these boats were likely attracted to.

View from Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome

Was able to visit the awesome Castel Sant'Angelo during my visit to Italy last week. It provided one of the best views of Rome in my opinion. 

In terms of processing, I've pretty much stopped using Photomatix tone mapping to create my images. Instead, I find that the creation of a 32-bit HDR image, combined with LR adjustments and finishing touches in Color Efex Pro, offers some pretty consistent results.
