[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken in Castellammare di Stabia where the Sorrento peninsula starts.
It's a view of Volcano Vesuvio.
I tried to give an antique effect in order to create an atmosphere similar to the paintings of Neapolitan School of the last centuries with the volcan as a main subject.

fantastic view. the antique touch does work.

Very nicely composed and quite successful in the old antique look, Francesco. I like the elongated format and the sepia/yellow tone. The grain is also a nice touch. Well done!

P.S. Good to see you posting from time to time!

Hi Francesco,
I lik ethe aged, old, look of this photo. It has a real timeless quality to it.

wow, Francesco, I can't believe it.

second..I am fascinated by the theme of Time.
third...I love your photo.It has quietness...loneliness...emptiness..and your PP is very good.

Very good PP work. You've got to get an out of time scene here.

Maybe a bit too much grain for my taste, but a nice composition of this great vista. Well done!

Ciao Francesco,
you succeeded in creating of old-fashion like photo. The landscape is great, with very nice clouds in the sky. The photo is a bit blurry - so characteristic of old photos. As well as not too high contrast. And of course sepia works here very well. All is perfect here, but the frame. The well saturated black creates disharmony with the old-fashioned interior of the photo. But fortunately I can reduce the browser window size in that way, that I see only what is inside the frame... ;-P tfs


nice mood and comp francesco
i like the grainy effect here
