There were countless mesmerizing photographs, however this one captured my attention the most. Paolo De Faveri captured this image at the heart of Alpi Marittime natural park in Piedmont, Italy. Throughout the image, the photographer used multiple techniques to help make the landscape shine in all aspects. He incorporates “telling a story” as it lures the viewer into looking at different focal points in the image. He also uses the technique “overlapping layers.” The viewer first sees the stream of water and the small red flowers to the right, then the eye wanders to the trees and at last the mountains that are barely visible behind the trees masked by the clouds. Paolo utilizes a long shutter speed due to how the water is smoothed out and a large depth of field as majority of the image is in focus.
