You don’t normally describe a city as tranquil. Especially and Italian city. Yet, the evening that I took this picture was exactly that. It was spent strolling along the waterfront at sunset. There was noise, there were lots of people about, but the mood was tranquil and relaxed. And I feel this picture captured it perfectly.
To capture this moment, I set the aperture to f/20, which gives the sun the star effect. I increased the shadows in Lightroom, and I really like the yellow tint in the photo. It took a few different shots to get one that worked, but this is the setting that worked the best.
