Challenge: Best of 2006 (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Nikon D2H
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D
Location: Venice, Italy
Date: May 26, 2006
ISO: 200
Date Uploaded: Jan 11, 2007

Taken atop the tower that overlooks St. Mark's Square in Venice, while I was in Italy over the summer doing my study abroad program in Bologna.

A decent amount of D/B'ing to bring out, what i thought to be, some of the more interesting features of the landscape, such as the Domed structure in the top left, the clouds in the sky, and parts of the arcade in the plaza.

Minor cropping
Minor cloning
bumped saturation (though not much, I was very lucky w/ the quality of the lighting this day) - looks good to me but i'm wondering if my monitor is off??
Multiple minor "s" curve adjustments
Neat Image
sat/curve
USM
Save for Web

Not my fave of 2006 but my fave of what i had available b/c I left my external HD at my parent's house :(

Beautiful detalis from front to back with sharpness throughout. Wish I could see this at full rez. And considering the light you had to work with it's amazing.

seems slightly oversaturated, but, all the same, an interesting perspective and composition in one of the most photographed cities in the world.

The square is like a void I keep falling into ... Otherwise interesting landscape

Superb point of view and you did very well in the post-processing, not going
too far with it and getting a tremendous amount of detail out of it.
Well done!

Red hue is distracting. I wished I saw more of the sky as well. Nice view though.

Another one of those images that looks like it would be soooo much more exceptional as a large print. Lots going on. Great lighting. Good colors.

Nice overview of one of my favourites cities - just a bit oversatureated I think, but it's still very nice.
