This photo was taken during a self-guided walking tour of Assisi courtesy of Rick Steves. As we were walking along the edge of the city, the old stone houses in front of the Umbrian countryside made a great vista to photograph. Though this ultimately turned into a high dynamic range photo (HDR), I didn’t shoot it as such. I triple-processed the RAW file and blended them to get this result. The original, by comparison, is very bland.
