Challenge: A Country Not My Own (Archival) .. (Standard Editing*)
Camera: Leica SL
Lens: Leica SL Vario-Elmarit 24-90 ASPH
Location: Venice, Italy
Date: Apr 16, 2017
Aperture: 6.3
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/100
Date Uploaded: Apr 14, 2020

This is Venice, almost 3 years ago to the day. April 16 2017. This is a handheld 3 bracket exposure edited in both LR, PS for basic and global adjustments and NIK CEP2 for contrast, glow, and soft focus. Finished with a hand drawn vignette and a hand drawn spotlight in the center region.

Thanks everyone. It was interesting, when I was looking for an image to enter for this challenge, I saw I had many bracketed unprocessed images from our trip to Italy in 2017. So, I processed this one, and it came alive.

Congrats Dennis,
I was also tempted to enter something from our trip to Venice last spring (seems like eternity ago!), but decided in favor of an African image )

Well I didn't pick this as yours, not your usual editing style - something I actually love. I actually have a very similar scene I've photographed but having said that I think if you've traveled to Venice most other's could say that too.

wonderful light and an iconic scene, love Venice, especially at night when the crowds are gone. Your title makes me think of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
