Living Scene of Nativity in Tricase (LE), Apulia, Italy.
2

In the south Italy, between Christmas and Epiphany, it's a tradition on the various towns to do a Living Scene of Nativity. I went to the town of Tricase not only because it's close to my home, but also because it's one of the oldest in the South Italy. Here some photos that i will share with you!!!

P.S. It was almost difficult to shoot because the place was completely dark, there was only colorfully low lights and were a bit crampled. I did have only 25mm to do these shoots.

If i have to buy another lens to do that type of work what will you want me to buy? A panasonic Leica 14mm f/2.5 or the Samyang (Rokinon) 7.5mm f/3.5 ? Thank you!

Re: More holiday pics

Thanks Yaelle, I really appreciate your response. I thought I would be cheeky and ask as I am very much in the learning stage of PP and I was wondering about purchasing the Nik collection.

No problem. I ofen wish I could see the 'before' picture but people seem reluctant. I think it would help the learning process a lot.

Yup - just been there. Can never resist an expensive graphics card even though I rarely play games.

Re: More holiday pics

Another nice set.  Like the first two, they have the same colouration as others you have shown from your trip.  Must be a locale thing.

I'm not likely to go back!! The only thing I miss is the footy

And if you've got a fast internet connection, you can even get that!

Actually, I don't miss the footy, although I have to confess to an afternoon of nostalgic madness with half-a-dozen others watching the grand final on the big screen in the Kavieng Club.

Cheers, geoff

Go easy guys, you will give us a bad name in Vic. We are having an unusually cold summer here at the moment but we had a 42C just before xmas which our northern hemisphere friends can only dream about at the moment!

For ONE DAY, Dazza, then it was back to about 22 the next day!!! They called it a "heat wave". When I was a kid, head waves were periods when we had 100+F for days on end!!!

Well, I'm escaping back to Rabaul in a couple of weeks!

In case anyone is wondering, it is 20C max today, with blustery cold winds and icy showers. I know exactly how icy -- I got caught in one on the way back from the dentist. And his news was bad enough without the weather conspiring with him!

Cheers, geoff

I thought you did very well with the 25. The Panny f2.5 14 is an excellent lens for this kind of work too, if you want a wider angle of view. Perhaps the olympus f2 12mm is another to consider.

With a wider angle lens, I would try to have a few shots showing spectators looking at the scene -- holdng the camera above your head so you look over their shoulders to draw viewers into the pictures.

The other question is always how much of the colored lighting should you preserve in such pictures. I find the colors are a bit obtrusive in some of these shots -- I would try (probably unsuccessfully!) to tone them down a bit. Don’t ask me how! I am not good at that stuff. Or rather, you might try automatic white balance in a post-processing program such as PhotoLine (the app I use - it only costs about $100), Photoshop, etc. That might do the trick.

Cheers, geoff

Haven't been to the Zoo in years

We intended to go to the Botanical Garden's Railroad show, but it was swamped. Besides, the Bronx Zoo is where we fell in love about 40 years ago. It was the same type of day, too.
