Glauco Eltink's picture

Go where the money takes you

Picture of the coliseum, in the same angle as displayed in an Euro coin.
It was particularly challenging to take this picture because i do backpacking and a tripod was to too much to carry around and i couldn't get the right depth of field.
In the end, this was one of the first pictures i used photoshop for real, stacking one with the focus on the coin with another with the focus on the coliseum.
Coliseo de Roma, Piazza del Colosseo, Roma, Italia.

I like the concept of this shot for a fun shot. It is not one that would go into a portfolio (I don't think).

I hate capturing people in the shot when shooting buildings, waterfalls, landscapes, etc. It is sometimes hard to not get them in the shot though. I have clone stamped a few out, this would be tough to do that with.

Photoshop has a neat feature, I have not tried yet. You set your camera up on a tripod. you take a series of pictures over a period of time and then use Photoshop to remove anything that is not in the series of shots. It looks pretty cool. I saw a tutorial on Youtube about it.

I would probably try using to dodge/burn the trees in the back right of the image to see if you can lighten it a little to show some more detail.

I would also take the same picture without the coin.
