The Rialto Bridge is one of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice. It is the oldest bridge across the canal, and was the dividing line for the districts of San Marco and San Polo. The present stone bridge, a single span designed by Antonio da Ponte, was finally completed in 1591. It is similar to the wooden bridge it succeeded. Two inclined ramps lead up to a central portico. On either side of the portico, the covered ramps carry rows of shops. The engineering of the bridge was considered so audacious that architect Vincenzo Scamozzi predicted future ruin. The bridge has defied its critics to become one of the architectural icons of Venice. Source: Wikipedia

excellent presentation with the POV to be very successful.I like the vivid colours as enhanced from the brilliant light with the passing by gondola to adds more effect in the scene.Well done.

Such a famous bridge, I imagine its not hard to find a new POV, but you have done brilliantly to do so here. A wonderful angle to show the bridge in all its detail, and the gondola disappearing underneath is an excellent addition. Really nicely done.
All the best

Hi again Gosia :)
Its funny to thonk at first this bridge wasnt liked and appreciated, a well informed note.
Once avain you show us lovely light and colors, but the close up of the architecture steals the show. Good textures and excellent perspectives.
Was it super busy in Venice in Sept? How many days were you there for?

une très belle compo, bien cadrée avec l'arc du Rialto et le gondolier. Détails et lumière sont de bonnes qualité.

le tue apparizioni in TE sono più rare, ma ogni tua foto continua ad essere un grande successo per la grande cura che metti nel preparare l'opera da presentare e sottoporre al giudizio degli altri.
Anche questa, avente per oggetto il Ponte di Rialto è perfetta, sia nella composizione che non lascia spazio ad elementi estranei e nello stesso tempo include quanto di bello c'è da vedere, sia nella scelta del taglio, dell momento in cui fotografare per fare in modo che la luce risulta ottimale e permetta di definire ogni dettaglio.
Hai avuto anche la pazienza di attendere che il gondoliere si accingesse ad attraversare l'arcata del ponte per completare la composizione.
Una foto priva di difetti, ma oltretutto bella nei contenuti.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

This is a gorgeous viepoint at the iconic Rialto bridge. There is everything present that makes Venice such a beautifull city, the famous bridge, the great architecture of the surounding palaces, even the ultimate gondola. In short, Venice in a nutshell.
Have a great day

Bon choix d'angle pour nous faire voir le pont Rialto comme on n'a pas l'habitude de le voir.

What a wonderful image from this very special city. Great POV and the little red and blue colors from the passengers in the gondola perfects it.

Have a nice Sunday.
SnapRJW (23510) 2013-09-28 23:05
A super composition taken from a very good vantage point Gosia. Lots of inferred movement in the shot created by the angled and sweeping lines of the bridge and the gondola passing beneath it keep the eyes busy. Excellent and enjoyable work. Warm regards rosemary
emka (64110) 2013-09-28 23:23

Good morning Goisa,
A marvelous view of the famous canal and bridge in Venezia.
Moving Gondola and people on the Rialto provided life to the scene, which show an exquisite view over the typical architecture's.
Have a nice Sunday,
CLODO (26371) 2013-09-29 1:59
it is so romantic, and you've included one of the famous bridge or Venice and the gondola, a good sumarise of what to do in this city.
papagolf21 (79512) 2013-09-29 2:07
Ah oui ! bravo pour ce cadrage rendant hommage à la beauté architecturale de cette ville mythique.
Très belle présentation.
ourania (18506) 2013-09-29 2:58
you've found a superb point of view to create an original, comprehensive and elegant composition to describe the scenery and the people's relation to it. I love the way the bow of the bridge draws us into the picture and takes us to the opposite bank. The building offers balance and reference. The textures have a stunning naturalness, the details are sharp and interesting. Light management is marvellous, especially considering the angle of the light. The warm colours are vibrant and delightful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

Super kolory i swiatlo.
Przywolalas wspomnienia :)
ChrisJ (91168) 2013-09-29 12:02
I like the warm cold color contrast between the red and blue. Smart choice of a vertical frame to accentuate the height & a good inclusion of the cathedral church spire at right. The woman on the gondola waving goodbye is a nice human touch. Tfs!
dkmurphys (42409) 2013-09-30 4:13
Iconic image from Venice. I like the atmosphere and the good quality of your image. Well seen.

clic (12465) 2013-10-13 6:58
I can hear the echoes of 'O sole mio", performed by the gondolier, bounced back by Rialto's arch!
Many compliments for this unusual view of the iconic monument, masterfully captured, that fully satisfies the hovering "spirit" of Venice!!
serp2000 (33057) 2013-10-15 4:53
I don't know when I will come to Italy next time again. So I like to see your photos from this wonderful country, from Venice.

Ciao dear Gosia
Such a beautifully composed and well-timed image. You waited for the perfect moment to capture the gondola sailing under this famous and beautiful bridge.
