A city with so much heritage on display from the great remains of the Roman Empire to stunning Italian style of the renaissance.  Not to forget Vatican city and some of the more less known locations such as Trastevere & Aventine.

A great city to wander on foot because around every corner is something to snap.  Just remember to take regular breaks an soak up the wonderful atmosphere.

If you’re wondering where’s the Trevi fountain shot(s), when I obviously have a thing for fountains. It was undergoing restoration work   Oh and the Spanish Steps?  The Trinità dei Monti was also undergoing restoration too and was covered with an advertising hoarding.  So probably an excuse to revisit Rome at a later date. 🙂

And now the gallery

The technical bits

A mixture of styles have been used from black & white to tone-mapped & just straight out the box images.

A Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III was used to capture the RAW images.   The EF24-105mm L series lens was my prefered lens for this break.

All of the shots we captured in camera raw and imported into Adobe’s Lightroom.  HDRSoft’s Photomatix was used to tone-map the images to increase the impact, and as always Adobe Photoshop was used for the final clean-up.

If a particular shot interests you or want to know more about my workflow just let me know.
