Follow the Path
I’ve been sitting on this image since the summer. This was taken Amalfi, Italy as I was walking around, exploring the town. I came across this walkway which led to a small hotel and was enthralled by the curving pathway and the arches. I shot 3 exposures which I tonemapped in Photomatix. I then tried processing it different ways but I just wasn’t happy with the final outcome.
Last week I heard that OnOne Perfect Photo Suite was on sale. I had been meaning to try this software for sometime but just never seemed to have the time. This weekend I downloaded the trial version and I was blown away by it. Once I finished my editing in Photo Suite I brought the image back into Photoshop and used Topaz Star Effects to give the lights just a touch of pop.
