Verona 2010 - photographs

After some crazy time at work I finally finished my Verona gallery (from our recent trip to Italy). At first I didn't have very high expectations from Verona, but after just a few hours I started to fall in love with that beautiful place. Verona is easily the most beautiful city I've ever seen in my travels.

To make the long story short, here are the pictures - http://www.pbase.com/olegis/verona
Have fun

They are gorgeous, especially the color!

I'm hoping to get back to Verona in a year or so for longer than a few hours. Where were you when you took _MG_0490.jpg, the photo of the river, bridge and hillside? Also, where were you when you took the "aerial" photos (331, 332, 340, 342 and 344) and the night photos? A hillside, a tower?

Thanks for the beautiful pictures. We were trying to decide between Verona and Padua for next May and the pictures tell us we have to go to Verona!

Fabulous Oleg---as usual.
The glow you get is wonderful---do you always shoot in the late afternoon?

Thanks all

Delaine, this photograph (http://www.pbase.com/olegis/image/129037168) was taken from Lingadige Panvinio. The "aerial" and night photos were taken from Taken from Castel San Pietro panoramic viewpoint.

bobthenavigator - yes, I always try to shoot early in the morning or late afternoon when the lighting is usually the best.

Excellent Olegis. Did you increase the saturation? Really caught the sweet light at any rate.

Makes me want to visit; funny how similar some of our pictures are from San G, Florence and Siena.

TDudette - yes, I increased saturation on some of the photos, this is a part of my post-processing routine.

Same here. I use Paint Shop Pro more than Photoshop. For me, it's more intuitive and, it has an edge enhancing smooth feature that I use a lot. The latest PSP versions are by Corel which bought that software.

Again, super shots!

Great pictures. Was wondering if you drove a car into Verona and if so was it a difficult city to navigate? Also, would like to know where you stayed. Would you recommend it?

Thanks
