Five shots, five different exposition (-2ev,-1ev, 0, +1ev, +2ev) at golden hour merged in hdr with photoshop. I didn't make any photo edit to sunstar, this effect is totally natural
One of the most spectacular sacred places of Lake Orta is surely the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Rock (Madonna del Sasso) built near the hamlet of the same name on a huge granite rock-face overhanging the lake below. From here, there is an unsurpassed view dominating Lake Orta and the mountains on the eastern shore of the lake, including Mount Mottarone.
This sacred complex, built in the early 1700s, on the site of a previous late medieval chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows, is made up of the church, the bell-tower and the Priest’s House. The church, shaped like a Greek cross with circular apse is topped by a huge frescoed dome which projects an inlaid star onto the floor. The interior also houses a large pictorial cycle by Lorenzo Peracino, a painter and sculptor from Valsesia, who left evidence of his great talent in numerous churches in the Cusio and Ossola area.
Extract from my last work at colosseum.
During this event, i had the great opportunity to remain inside three hours after the official closure:
deafening silence, emotion, magnificence, is impossibile to describe what i felt and with only the guardian's presence...for one night the Colosseum was for my eyes only!
In the afternoon, i've realized a golden hour shot from the highest zone; for this night capture, I decided to shoot directly
from the arena: I placed my camera with the widest lens I have , Low ISO, f10 to represent worthily the outstanding scene in front of my eyes
Finally...this is my shot
