I love visiting volcanos or similar extreme places because it is the closest activity to extraterrestrial planets exploration. And since Sicily hosts Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe, with its 3329 meters, I couldn’t miss to visit it. At late spring the top of the volcano is covered by a multitude of colorful wild flowers, and the contrast with the black, rocky and innerly deadly environment is moving.
At the third day using Photogene I tried some more complex post-production, with brushes and gradients, plus several adjustment. I really love the fact that the app remembers the adjustment operated to every and each image, allowing me to go back and tune them again, when needed. This feature is fundamental whenever trying anything complex, because gradients or brushes may require to modify some previous adjustment to properly work. Sure, jpeg files are always prone to clipping, but if used with care Photogene is absolutely capable of providing excellent results.
