Stopping in the Bay of Naples for Dinner

    Newer Older

    I always wonder what it would be like to have a non-stop boat-lifestyle. Having a boat... sailing up and down the Italian riviera... stopping in one little town for a snack... going to an abandoned grotto for some diving... sailing to a new port for dinner at sunset... I think that would be a nice life, eh?

    This was shot in Naples. The city has a beautiful castle jutting out into the Bay of Napoli. It overlooks a cool harbor, a thriving shop and restaurant area, and Mount Vesuvius looming on the horizon.

    I was told to closely watch all my camera gear and bags while walking around Naples. There's supposed to be a lot of crime, and I don't doubt it. But I didn't see any while there. The biggest problem was only have 15 hours of daylight to shoot, and I felt like I was a bit robbed by the god of time.

    Also, I recently updated my SLR Camera recommendations as well on the site... in case you were lookin' for something...

      Nice Trey. A "cleaner" HDR than I am used too from you. Got any tips on how to get rid of the green fringing, like seen in the rooftops here.

That’s why, as a part of the competition and before the official launching of the website, we’re inviting you to take part in this event by joining the Nespresso CitiZ Dot Contest group and adding in your picture:

      Kind Regards,
