San Giorgio Maggiore Church in the Morning, Venice

Imagine yourself on a long voyage towards Venice. Perhaps you are a merchant headed into Venice to sell your goods in the thriving market. Or maybe you are an artist, on your way to study the art and architecture.

Whatever your reason for heading to this destination, when approaching Venice see the island bound church in this photo, the San Giorgio Maggiore, is one of the first things you see before arriving in Venice.

After shooting Campanile and Doge’s Palace with telephoto lens earlier this morning, I decided to try long focus composition with San Giorgio Maggiore Church from the very same spot. During this shoot I made a series of photos capturing different phases of twilight.

The sun expected to rise behind my back and provided excellent side lighting which rendered the architecture details in a stunning way. To narrow down which photo to showcase I selected the one with the best light and colour quality.

My Copenhagen Photo in National Geographic Travel (Spain) #183

There is a very special achievement for any travel/landscape photographer to get published in National Geographic magazine. I was really excited when one of my Copenhagen night photos was suddenly published in June 2015 issue of Spanish National Geographic Travel (Viajes National Geographic). I was contacted by NG editor back in April after she stumbled upon my Copenhagen photo at 500px website and asked if I agree to sell license to be published in Copenhagen related story in upcoming June 2015 issue. Yes, of course!

Here is the photo of Copenhagen Amagertorv Square and Stork Fountain I captured during my visit to Copenhagen in April 2012, which was selected by National Geographic editor.
