This shot has been taken from Fondamenta delle Zattere to capture in the background an architecture of Giudecca.
Giudecca is an island in the Venetian Lagoon. It was known in ancient times as the Spinalunga (meaning "Long Thorn"). Giudecca was historically an area of large palaces with gardens, the island became an industrial area in the early 20th century with shipyards and factories, in addition to a film studio. Much of the industry went into decline after World War II, but it is now once more regarded as a quiet residential area of largely working-class housing with some chic apartments and exclusive houses.

Bonjour, chère Gosia,
Encore une image emprunte de romantisme pour notre plus grand plaisir.
Très belle mise en image avec des couleurs rappelant les films Kodak de l'époque.

le tue foto spesso si distinguono per la particolare atmosfera che riesci a dare ad esse sfruttando al meglio la luce.
Anche in questa hai ottenuto un risultato eccellente per la particolare luce che allunga le ombre. ma anche per la scelta del soggetto e per il particolare taglio che hai scelto che valorizza la figura in primo piano e il classico lampione dalle lampade rosa tipico della città.
Anche lo sfondo, non molto conosciuto contribuisce a creare la giusta ambientazione.
Una bella foto alla quale la postproduzione ha aggiunto dei toni ancor più caldi che danno ad essa l'aspetto di qualcosa di antico.
Ciao e buona domenica

Ciao Gosia. i like your PP as the resulting image reminds me of Italian films from the 60 and 70s- there is a Kodachrome feel about it. Is the lady reading a novel or a tourist guidebook? I presume the latter. Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

Old-film texture made a unique pink view on Venezia.
Even the lamp-posts glass taken this tone.
well done on the perspective taken, the lady on the banch added life to the scene.
Have a nice Sunday,

A seductive and well constructed composition with the lady carefully studying her guidebook, framed by the lamp and the wonderful Venetian architecture as a backdrop. Love the warm light and colours and the wonderful feeling of peace and serenity. Thanks for sharing.

Nice warm cold colour contrasts between the red magenta and blue hues with excellent sharpness and smart choice of a vertical frame. Good sidelighting and the fg woman reading a book animates the shot. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs!
ourania (18616) 2013-09-22 5:51
a very fine composition with a simple, elegant and appealing arrangement in the vertical frame. I like very much the calmness and elegance of this scene and how the elements that compose it look connected. The lamp post is excellently placed at the side and against the sky creating great perspective, depth and interest. The colour treatment is very agreeable and effective as it has created a nostalgic and enchanting old movie or postcard atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,

That is a beautiful architectural scene, and even more magical that you captured this lady in this great pose, which in addition to the lamp adds excellent depth to the whole scene. I love the light falling on the scene too, its very magical and pleasing. Beautiful composition and shot, cheers.
All the best

la luce è molto particolare e la signora sembra godere di questo spettacolo leggendo illuminata dall'ultimo sole della giornata.
Molto bella la composizione, Venezia è appena percepibile, ma l'atmosfera è quella giusta.
rychem (13628) 2013-09-22 9:29
Dobra scenka z dwoma ciekawymi elementami: ławką i latarnią, wszystko ładnie się komponuje z ta kobieta w takiej pokojowej pozie, pięknia złapane
mjw364 (6142) 2013-09-22 10:52
I like the retro lomo polaroid type effect you have achieved here. It creates a sense of this shot coming from an old 1960s Italian film - which I presume was your intention. Well composed and nice atmosphere.
claudeD (26946) 2013-09-22 11:25
Wonderful picture from Venice with an excellent composition and fine light managment. You did very well to place the lady in the shot adding by this way life to your shot. TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg

Une bonne composition et une jolie lumière pour cette bonne photo. Ton travail de PP donne des couleurs particulières apportant un intérêt supplémentaire à l'image.
olive224 (2521) 2013-09-23 3:57
Great composition here ;)
I like the posture of the woman and the streetlight too
The colorized version is extreme but very effective
gervaso (9247) 2013-09-23 4:17
The soft colors given by the sun at this time are great! The lamp is what really stands out in the composition, making it much more attractive! A pleasant place to take a rest and read! Beautiful composition!

myslalem ze Giudecca to imie tej dziewczyny na pierwszym planie :) Wspaniala kompozycja ale swiatlo dosyc trudne. tzn swiatlo swietnie sie nadajace na portret tej dziewczyny ale sama architektura pozostaje nieco w cieniu. Znakomicie uchwycona chwila, gratulacje,
mesutilgim (72978) 2013-09-27 13:06
I do not know if anyone has allready mentioned in his (or her) critics, but this capture with it's light and colors has the taste of the early color movies of sixties and seventies !
For me -as one of the eldest members (71) here it's quite nostalgic and mastery at the same time as well.
TFS and have a nice weekend
macjake (45588) 2013-09-28 7:48
What strikes me immediately is the mood.
The ambiance is set with the warm glow of light, the single person and the richly elegant light post.
Put them all together and you have a wonderful scene.
Smart eye for this scene

Samotność jest przyjemnością dla tych, którzy jej pragną–zwłaszcza w tak romantycznej scenerii!
Gratuluję i serdecznie pozdrawiam,
