Framing Your Subject in Venice.
Knowing I can use Lightroom and Photoshop later, lets me capture images that were impossible a few years ago. Every computer and smart phone comes with a photo editor installed, that allows for quick and easy adjustments. For starters, these include: exposure, saturation and cropping. You can also turn your image into a "Monet," sort of.
Expose so the bright areas (highlights) have detail, then lighten the shadows afterwards.
