Street in Bologna, Italy photo: Malcolm Aslett












Bologna is a city famous for its porticos and towers as well as its cuisine. The pasta is nowhere to be seen in this one but we get a glimpse of its other treasures. In long joiners the sky values can change considerably and you are left with decisions regarding how to handle it. You can change the light and contrast values in each photo, possibly change colour values, or, as in this case end up 'drawing' parts in. It's a pity the foreground lacked the necessary photos. The geometric drawn lines add something but don't quite pull it off. At least the figure finished with a white block looks like the Pope.
