St Peter's Basilica, Rome

By andrewtaylor
I took this on honeymoon last year. I'd taken a few shots up until this, our last day. All of a sudden, further up the river bank, the sky looked as though it was about to catch on fire.

I ran down the bank, calling to my new wife "I've just gotta get this."

I used a high ISO in order to freeze the boat and an ND2 to keep the sky as my eye saw it.

I don't know why, but the large version doesn't look as good here as it does on my computer - the colours aren't as rich or deep in texture.

Beautiful colours. I've taken a shot of this from about the same place. Unfortunately mine was in the day time and didn't look anywhere near as atmospheric as this. Lovely stuff.
