Photographic art by Davide Capponi

Lady of the grey world

This is a funerary monument in the Cimitero Generale of Torino. This has been shot with my iPhone 3gs.

The app used to shot the image was HDR Pro, cropping and adjustments were done using Snapseed, further editing was done using ShockMyPic, Rays, Dynamic Light, Pic Grunger and Phototoaster.

    I really enjoy looking at your work. I am very happy to have discovered your blog! This picture like so many of your other pictures is simply amazing.

    This is magical – It is wonderful. It looks as though she just appeared through a hole in time. Great job!

    Oh WOW! Because of your post of a building shot with app, I purchased it for my iPhone. My images are not worthy of publishing but it sure is fun.

    This is wonderful–did dynamic light provide the rays or was that a separate app (or a good original!!)?

    Davide the light in this one…. it has a fluidity that can only be borne of nature…well captured, Jane

      Thank you! I think good photos can be taken anywhere, but nevertheless you should come to Italy!

    Make it darker and it would be a great ‘gothic’ photo.

    da quando ero bambina il cimitero mie era familiare, ma non trovavo una bellezza in esso, mentre da queste foto mi accorgo che i volti , le statue hanno un mistero che non è solo dolore…ciao

    Andare per cimiteri è un esercizio stlistico meraviglioso…
    Ho una piccola slide che vorrei farti vedere, è in ACdsee e si apre con VLC ma non riesco a inviarla, forse solo per mail… fammi sapere se puoi

        se non lo hai visitato te lo consiglio: cimitero monumentale di Staglieno, Genova, forse il più ricco d’arte, personaggi, estensione… d’Europa

        grazie per la mail, proverò a spedire la slide

        So che Staglieno é uno dei top d’Europa, conto di andarci presto.

    Absolutely stunning use of light/shadow and tonal effects.

    Dynamic light gave the light effect? nice! i bought an app called ‘lensflare’ that does several different light effects, so tempted to use it in so many of my pictures lol!

      Hi Andy, the rays effect is given by an app called “Rays” that is similar to lensflare, but in my opinion more powerful.
