Firenze Night…

by on Feb.21, 2018, under Life, Photography

5:25PM (35 minutes after sunset) and Firenze is drifting into night.

As it’s now much darker I’m shooting on Manual (Auto ISO disabled) and fixed the ISO (1000 in this pano) and locked Aperture (wide open at f/4) and let shutter speed fluctuate for the HDR brackets.

This panorama is comprised of four horizontal frames wide with each frame composed of five (1EV) bracketed exposures for a total of 20 frames.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

Just after 5:30PM with darkness setting in, my girls and I finally decide it’s time to leave. It’s been an amazing sunset and twilight, time to head out for dinner.

If you are ever in Florence – don’t miss the opportunity to climb the Duomo Dome – the view is spectacular and well worth the hassle of getting up here.
