Rome, Italy – Trevi Fountain (HDR)

Here is the real Trevi Fountain in the amazing Rome, Italy!  A super Place 2 Explore!!   Rome is truly stunning!  If you have already or  plan to visit…one week in just Rome is perfect!  So many things to see and the food is unreal!  I was in a few years back and wanted to see the Trevi Fountain.  I took a cab from my hotel just to get here.  In Rome…everything seems to be about a 10 minute taxi ride.   It was a Sunday afternoon…this means lots of people hanging out.  I walked up and just grabbed a few shots.  This was taken before my HDR days…converted with a single raw.

You can see the grand scale of the fountain compared to the one in Vegas.  Such a beautiful place!  I’d like to plan a vacation here in a few years.  Then take a train up to Florence & Venice.  Italy is one stunning country!!  Molto Bello!

Las Vegas, Nevada – Trevi Fountain (HDR)

I wish I had a week in Las Vegas just to take photos.  I bet you can spend a day in each hotel and have tons of sweet HDR’s!  While walking down the strip you pass by Caesars Palace.  Here you can find a smaller replica of Trevi Fountain.   It is not exact, but pretty cool.  Now brings up a battle of fountains in HDR!  Of course the original can’t be beat.  You will notice some differences…I have an HDR of the real Trevi Fountain coming on tomorrows post…a little different shot, but the same processing!

Austin, Texas – Textured (HDR)

Its a double shot Saturday with two HDR’s Textured from Austin, Texas.  The photo above is from a famous local bar called the “Broken Spoke”. Out front of the establishment they have this super old broken down swing band tour bus that has lots of character and must be added to the spots to photograph in Austin!

The photo above is from Moore’s Crossing in Austin.  I was up recently taking some XMas Card portrait photos near sunset and grabbed a semi silhouette shot of the bridge and thought it might be cool with an added texture or two.  The rain is a texture to give it that moody feel.  Hope you like it?   Have a great weekend!
