MatericLook: LightPath 00 by Francesco Perratone, Austria Photography and art

Here’s a new image of a sunset over Vienna.

The picture was taken a few days ago, on a cold 31st of December 😉

While the Sun was disappearing, those beautiful colors faded in…. the view is from the main bridge crossing Donauinsle , an island on the Danube. The area is mainly recreational, restaurant, bars, and nice places to take a walk or a run.

The church silhouette is from St. Francis of Assisi church, also known as Mexico Church or Kaiserjubiläumskirche. Unfortunately it was closed at the time, so I couldn’t take a look inside.

Looking in the opposite direction there was an equally magnificient view. A glass skyscraper was reflecting the light and colors, blending with the background.

Apart from the colors and contrast, I like the geometry and composition, with that nice slice of Moon peeking through the sky…

Enjoy! :-)

MatericLook: Amaghu Valley by Francesco Perratone, Armenia Photography and art

A work from the Armenia Photography series, a sunset view of the beautiful Amaghu Valley, where Noravank Monastery sits.

The valley is named after the river Amaghu, in some places it’s narrow, becoming a real canyon. Located in the Vayots Dzor region, is not far from the city of Yeghegdnazor.

The valley’s peculiar features (apart from the fascinating Noravank Monastery) are its cliffs, whose bright red rocks emerge on their sides. The drive to the monastery is nice and pleasant. This particular view comes from the bottom of the valley, before starting the short climb to the religious building.

For this image I used first of all the usual techniques, like HDR, multiple exposures and a small bit of digital painting. Then I started experimenting a bit…

I intensified the light/shadow contrast by using harmonious curves, with a “rhythm” similar to those extrapolated from classic sculpture. Finally I combined the dark and light areas with the existing luminance details, before applying them to the work.

I would say the results aren’t bad. In this particular image I followed the pre-existing land profiles. As a result the influenced areas are fitting nicely without a strong distinction.

I’d like to do more experiments in this direction, probably with other kind of images, more abstract, where the contrast can be stronger.

A lovely morning, a bit cold, maybe, but light and colors are great and the fog is moving through the valley… a feeling of calmness permeates everything.

MatericLook: VeniceLandscape0 by Francesco Perratone, Venice Photography, Art

Bad weather is approaching fast, the landscape is becoming darker and darker. A strip of buildings on the other side seems to be the only source of light, also the water is dark and starting to become agitated.

MatericLook: GreenShrimp by Francesco Perratone, experiment, art, photography

 

This is an experiment, a nice detail picture of some shapeless food remains in a puddle of oil…

Extensively modified through digital effects, layering and painting. Just to extract that “materic” look, almost completely detaching it from reality.

A beautiful afternoon in BC, not too far from Alberta and the parks…. The light is incredible, a little haze makes the mountains on the horizon otherworldly….

Another Image from British Columbia, just over a path following a river. Its roots are fighting with the stone to reach earth and the craved reward: life.
