[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a photo I took with someone else's camera, a Canon EOS 300D.

The photo was shot during the day, but because the sky was white and insignificant, I thought of transforming it in something different. So I selected the sky area and took away all luminosity, obtaining a black sky. Then added a sun effect.
I also decreased hue and increased saturation a bit.
Hope you like it.
Any feedback as always much appreciated. Thank you! :-)

Ciao Martina,with your pp you obtain a really strange effect,I like the colours and sharpness,Gubbio is a wonderful city for such kind of picture...maybe you can make less dark the sky,to make it seems more natural,also I think this pic maybe good in B&W.Anyway I like it a lot.
Welcome on Tl

Hi Martina!
You have obtained a very nice effect with the PP. The full moon (if I may call it that) looks too radiant, almost like a spotlight. I agree with Edie, that the sky looks too dark, maybe 80-85% black would have been nice.
Well experimented, overall.

Hi martina, Indeed you menaged to make a difernt scene. very creative, very good PP.
Well done!

take care, Stef

Beautiful picture, the brightness is perfect
the perfect place.
Congratulations for his picture, beautiful


Amazing photo. Really interesting title as well. I like all about this shot: colours, compo and subject.
good work!

I was pretty sure it was night till I saw your note. Fantastic PP work.
just a small doubt though shouldnt the lamp on the right top corner be glowing ?
Anyways its a beautiful place and a very pretty picture.
Good job.

This is a lovely scene. You did a nice job making it look like nightime. I thought I'd go one step further and add a filter. I did a workshop, and hope you like it.

Italy in Space.

Good work and interesting processing

I've been to Perugia but the guy failed to show us this interesting place. I like the nice focus and the red bush to the left.

very interesting.
In old film they use this metod to make night effect on their films:)
i try to workshop on it hope you like it.

Very creative work,well done!

Gubbio is a lovely town. Been there many years ago and took lots of BW photos that I wan to post asap in trekearth.
Your picture is lovely for atmosphere and light. I'd have given some more space to the moon/sun, anyway it's a good composition.
ciao ciro

L'idea di cambiare il cielo rende l'immagine ancora più speciale - molto bello!

Hi Martina!
oh, i love this!! it looks almost like an IR photo, such a beautiful atmoshere...like a fairy tale! lovely composition and colours!
