I took my Pansonic LX100 II to work today as I had to take pictures of the volunteers at work and didn’t want to use office cameras.
In the afternoon, on my way home, I turned my bicycle towards the city center to buy something for Valentine’s Day and when I reached “Prato della Valle” I took the camera out of my backpack.
Any photo I take today, for two months now, is a way to re-learn how to make photographs, but also how to make the most of my new camera. What’s more, it’s also a way to get to know Darktable, and eventually interact with Pixls.us. So every new shot of mine today could potentially generate 4 new things for me to learn, into 4 different fields of knowledge.
And here is where I ask for your help.
The shot was taken towards sunset in Padua (Italy). The temperature today was mild, around 15 °C in the afternoon. A little bit of haze was evenly distributed.
This photo is shared under the CC0 license (which means: “do with it what you want”. It’s yours).
I applied a style I made a while back that uses a LUT, so it won’t apply correctly without that - let me know if you want me to dig up the LUT file!
Not really sure about this effect but quite like it.
Thanks for the image. GIMP. I decided that a couple of distractions had to go! The two people in the foreground and the illuminated signs of the number 22 bus. Local adjustments to contrast and brightness. Then I thought that we have a second image within the frame.
Nice! I don’t know why the others chose not to remove the two persons… I also removed a pidgeon flying in the sky.
Your colors are better than those in my processing.
Good idea also to take a different crop. Thanks.
Its funny, I often like people in a scene I feel it brings life and realism but I can see how they could be perceived as a distraction… for me…its less distracting but the building crane which is a minor detail would be something I would remove…
