Photographer's Note

First thing i need to say is that obviously this photo is in HDR. I always try to keep my HDR processing to a minimum, but this time I had to go a bit further.

The lighting was not in my favor, so i had to use monochrome to make it somewhat presentable.

This is the Fountain of Four Rivers in the Piazza Navona, a popular place to hang out and enjoy the sights and sounds of Rome.

The Fountain of Four Rivers depicts Gods of 4 Great Rivers across 4 Continents. The Nile in Africa, the Ganges in Asia, the Danube in Europe and the Rio de la Plata in America.

I wanted to have a unique pov of this often photographed fountain. I didn't want to present the usual straight-on composition.

Using the hand of one of the Gods looking skywards toward the Cathedral seemed at the time a powerful point of view. What do you think?

Black and White photographs tend to be less appreciated here on TE. Therefore i'm not sure how this one will be received, along with the strong HDR effect. Lets hope you like it!

If you don't enjoy it, i posted a color version in the WS. The WS photo is NOT hdr, and it has less of a dramatic composition.

thanks for looking
