Where angels fear to tread

I’ve had some downtime so have done some photo editing. I was in Florence in May. Took a fair few pics (most of which I’ve posted). My composition is rarely very original but I do quite enjoy the PP stage (post processing).

You can see larger versions if you click on the picture (which takes you to the flickr page) and then choose ‘all sizes’.

A bust, I forget which museum. I don’t think it’s a Michelangelo.

A church in a square, the names for both of which temporarily escape me.

The Duomo. Have gone for quite a contrasty B&W conversion on this.

Church and square. I quite like Ansel Adams-esque black skies (in film days you’d achieve this with red filters).

Church interior. These frescoes on the wall are very old, 500 years or so.

  1. You take some lovely pictures. I enjoy contrasty B&W. I grew up processing my own B&W for display: 16×20, 11×15, etc. Fell in love with contrast for detail. Hate flat photos as they lack depth.Of course, must be careful of details – which is why I enjoyed processing my photos – control!

    Italy – what a wonderful adventure!!

  2. Mancais – thanks. They looked fairly flat out of the camera but I spent some time giving them some oomph.

    Tawandah – cool! Shame you don’t blog, you should show them online. Love B&W.

    Paul – thank you!
