Ponte di Rialto

Ponte di Rialto

One of the more iconic architectural structures in Venice, the Ponte di Rialto (Rialto Bridge) over the main canal wasn’t the easiest to get a photo of. Along with other shots of Venice, it’s all about time, place and circumstance (isn’t that also true for photography in general?)

The sky was processed separately, mostly levels, curves, dodge and burn and hue/sat. Shadow/Highlight was used to bring out the detail under the bridge, levels and curves to provide contrast.
