Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza

Posted by Giovanni (Milan, Italy) on 25 January 2009 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Rome, January 1st.
I started playing with textures and I probably did it too much...

One of the textures is from Angelique Brunas' website.

WABIKOJA from Shiga, Japan

Nice shot! I like this color and silhouette.

Pied Crow from Nairobi, Kenya

This is a fun experiment, I like the way you have used the textures to push the antique feel of the architecture. Great gloomy feeling.

La fotografia cosi' lavorata da l'impressione di un'antica stampa su tela è comunque un bel lavoro

Maybe you played a bit too much for a documentary shot. But as an artificial work this one is just great!

Stunning. I am new to Aminus3 and I am amazed at the quality of pictures I am seeing.

This reminds me of the top of a magical place.

I like this very much . . the 'old parchment' effect is very appropriate to your subject and it looks really good overall ! Lovely effect.

Taking the perfect photo is fun. Messing around on the computer is also fun so do not discredit your work on the computer to show us how you feel about the photo.

Very interesting processing. I don't know if you'd be interested, but Dave Nightingales latest tutorial is on working with textures

Pradeep from Chennai, India shot. Powerful composition. Lovely processing work :)

26 Jan 2009 5:36pm

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Un traitement qui joue avec les textures très intéressant et qui donne beaucoup de cachet à l'ensemble. Je trouve juste que le monument est un petit peu trop sombre, j'aurais aimé voir un peu plus de détail, une question de goût... :-))

hugo poon from hong kong, Hong Kong

Wonderful capture and the bird certainly helps heighten the image! I'm not a fan of "digital art" but must say the treatment is really beautiful and adds to the wondeful vintage feel...
