A beautiful sunset wraps up over the Arno and leaves behind a gorgeous sky.

A blend of four exposures, -1 ev long exposure for the sky and water, +1ev for shadows, base ev for the rest, then one more for the street lights at a small aperture. Blended with luminance masks and painted masks. Further editing involved sharpening with high pass and smart sharpening, dodging and burning, punching up highlights, fixing tones with the selective color filter and boosting contrast with Nik Color Efex Pro.

Long exposure achieved with a B+W 10 stop ND filter.
