Honorable Mention TOKYO-2019 Fine Art / Other

Dundrennan Abbey, Scotland

  • Photographer
    Miguel Franco Botticelli

I took this picture on a beautiful afternoon. A large white cloud was behind the tree and the Abbey, highlighting it in a special way. A sunbeam kissed the horizon in a beautiful light mood. This photo belongs to my long-term project Scotland–Historic and beautiful. I used historical methods, which the great masters of the Renaissance practiced in their art of painting, while using my Tent Camera. The ground is an integral part of the image, which gives this other artistic dimension, directly from the digital or analog camera. Everything without double exposure or composing in post production
