I rarely had opportunities to really set down my tripod and get some brackets in Rome, but the other day I was at the Piazza di Spagna and finally had some time to get out my tripod and shoot some solid brackets. I did some 5 step brackets then (including the unsuccessful set of the clouds from the other day) and in processing these and others I was amazed at how spectacularly marble glows. The picture of the sun was not a 5 step bracket, and although the church is, I am unsure how much the extra stops helped. The sky turned out poorly as usual which forced me to spend hours in Photoshop bringing it back. The sun over the apartments was truly spectacular and I was glad that these brackets helped capture what I saw.
