Castle of Angels – Rome

Yesterday I was going through images to see what might work for the Art Fair jury process and the this early morning image of the Castle of Angels popped out. I had processed the image a while ago and it has been in the back of my mind for some time. I think the B&W version will make a nice jurying image.

The image has a little noise in it and used Topaz DeNoise 6 to eliminate the noise.

Afterglow at the Florian, San Marco Piazza, Venice

Christmas is wonderful but it can be a little sad after all the festivities are over so I hope you can join me at the Caffè Florian in Saint Marks Square in Venice for the afterglow party in April.

After processing this image in Lightroom 5.7 I brought the image into Topaz Adjust 5 to brighten the image and make it a little more festive.

Balcony Gardens of Rome May 2015 Photo Workshop

In the spring of 2015 from April 28 through May 12 of 2015 I will be in Italy capturing images and teaching. In Rome the balcony gardens have been amazing when I have been there in the fall and I am looking forward to capturing them in their spring bloom.

This balcony garden near the Piazza Navona in Roma is one of the locations I want to spend time capturing.

I used the cloning and healing tools in Photoshop to clean up the image and then used Topaz Clarity to help with the colors in this image and then used Nik Pro Contrast to fine tune my color adjustments.
