I took both these photos of the Basilica of Saint Francis in the city of Assisi during a wonderful trip to Italy. Assisi is absolutely beautiful, and even though it’s inundated with tourists much of the time, it retains a peaceful atmosphere reminiscent of its patron saint. My husband and I were walking toward the Basilica that evening to attend a jazz concert and had the good fortune to meet this sunset and crescent moon.
I edited this second photo aiming more for a pleasing image rather than a strict record-what-you-see photograph.
I almost never take night shots. I really need to learn more about the process instead of just experimenting and fiddling about. I could consult google, but if anyone can recommend a good tutorial, please leave a comment below 🙂
