An excercise in handling dynamic range. With a little help in post, the OM-D E-M1 MkII does exceedingly well. I didn’t even have to resort to DxO. Of course I’ve played with gradients of different color temperatures as well. I think the result is quite satisfying.
In Trieste there’s not much flat space between the sea and the hills. That and the innumerous one-way streets make driving by car … let’s say … challenging. Navigating public transport may not be easy either. Of course you can walk, but then you may not only have to expect a few stairs, you’ll also be surprised by how long a stretch the city is.
You’ll be glad to hear that this is the last image of that City Hall. Nice light though 🙂
The tower of the City Hall may not be the most elegant piece of architecture, especially the rather plump roof, but there are interesting details. Just look at the rim of fruit below the clock face.
I suppose you see that wavy pattern in the cornice practically everywhere, but I fancy the idea that it might be inspired by the rolling waves of the sea 🙂
Pretty fancy, actually 🙂
Well, one could say they are visually overloaded, but then, compared to what we get now, I love the attention to details.
And now we’re back to Trieste’s main square, the Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia, with the City Hall and its tower. It’s not the most spectacular sight in the city, but while I sat there in a street café, I constantly had it in view, and so I couldn’t help but take a few images with the long lens 🙂
At the heart of Trieste’s Old Town is a small pedesterian area full of old shops, restaurants and street cafès.
This is a corner in Via dei Capitelli in the Old Town. Follow the narrow street and you reach the Osteria Al Petes, an excellent place to eat local specialties.
