4 Million Bricks in Florence, Italy


f/11 ISO 100 1/100 10-24mm@10mm

Il Duomo di Firenze, aka The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore (St Mary of the Flower), as seen from the adjacent Giotto’s Campanile (standing bell tower).  Construction began in 1296 and was completed in 1436. The basilica is topped by Brunelleschi‘s revolutionary dome,  which is composed of more than 4 MILLION bricks!

This is an HDR image. Three handheld images were bracketed at 2 f stops and then merged with Photomatix and fine-tuned with Aperture.

This post is dedicated to my good friend James.


Experimenting with Light and Motion

f/8 ISO100 13s 10-24mm@18mm.

I have been playing around recently with motion and lights, and what better time to experiment with lights than during the holiday season? This image was taken on Bahnhoffstrasse in Zurich. It is an HDR blend of two different images, each of which captured one of the trams. I merged the two and created the HDR with Photomatix. Slight color changes were made with Aperture.
