When I visited Italy few years back I stayed in Trieste for 10 days. Via Degli Artisti became my
favorite and most visited street in the city. Let me explain. I drove tiny rental car with no GPS and I had no data plan on my iPhone. I had to navigate in Trieste old fashion way using maps and reading street signs.
Somehow every time I took wrong turn in the maze of narrow streets in the center of Trieste I would end up on one-way Via Degli Artisti time after time with no way out.
On my 10th pass of so I finally stopped and took few pictures of my new favorite street.

- Topaz Detail was used to enhance details in the foreground elements.
- Topaz DeNoise I applied RAW – Moderate preset, it was enough to reduce noise.
