Writing with Light

At Home in Murano

On our way to catch the ferry back to Venice I spotted a woman looking out her window. She was probably thinking “why are all these tourists in such a hurry?”

This is one exposure processed in Photoshop and then converted to B&W with Topaz B&W Effects. You can take advantage of a 15% discount on any Topaz Labs product by using the discount code ELPHOTO.

  2. I don’t know – she kind of looks like she’s laughing. Maybe she’s saying to herself, “Oh wow, look at that! Luigi, next door, just lost his pants!! LOL. This is a great shot – one that a story could be written from.

  9. Wonderful capture, Edith! Love the B&W edit, it emphasizes the scene. And I like how I can see the detailed reflections of the curtain (my guess) on the window pane.
