The view taken from Saint Mark's Basilica. Hope you like it!
The Piazzetta di San Marco is not part of the Piazza but an adjoining open space connecting the south side of the Piazza to the waterway of the lagoon. The Piazzetta lies between the Doge's Palace on the east and Jacopo Sansovino's Libreria which holds the Biblioteca Marciana on the west. From: Wikipedia

la tua non è una foto, ma un quadro del Canaletto tanto essa è perfetta nella rappresentazione di questa bella piazza e dello sfondo che le fa da cornice.
Oltretutto hai avuto la fortuna di trovare una bella giornata di sole che ha reso i colori brillanti e illuminato a dovere il Palazzo Ducale.
Una nitidezza molto elevata ha aggiunto ulteriore valore al tuo scatto.
Ogni giorno diventi sempre più brava! Complimenti
Ciao e buona serata

Classical of course but hard to be otherwise here
very nice colors and luminosity, well composed with the perspective converging to the island at BG
best regards, have a nice evening

TFS and best regards

non mi stanco mai di vedere Venezia e la tua foto assomiglia molto di più a una finestra aperta sulla piazza che a un'immagine statica.
I colori e la nitidezza sono eccellenti e c'è una bellissima prospettiva che conduce fino all'infinito passando tra gli spazi stretti della laguna.
Complimenti, davvero una foto bellissima.

Hi Gosia. Splendid shot with its brilliant light, strong definitions and POV. Reminds me of a B&W i took decades ago from similar spot. I think I have it in my Italy gallery.Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

Hello, excellent view of San Marcos Square and the Doges Palace. Excellent color saturation and very fine perspective.

Une photo classique mais très réussie de la place Saint-Marc. Belle lumière et bon cadrage.

I like it very much Gosia. A perfect postcard with fabulous fine detail. I do like the way the buildings on either side of the sqaure guide our view to the beautiful blue and turquoise in the distance. Lots of people but so tiny they add an interesting element to the shot. Nicely done indeed. Rosemary

There is a fantastic sense of the size of this plaza, the people sow the size of the buildings and monuments which looks brilliantly vivid against the deep blue background. A perfect contrast of colors and wonderful depth too.
All the best

iconic Venice this. Immaculate detail and superb light management make this so delightful. A captivating image that you have presented beautifully. Love it!

Tu as su trouver un point de vue original pour nous montrer cette superbe place, probablement une des plus visitées au monde. Tu as eu aussi très beau temps avec une lumière superbe. J'apprécie énormément l'effet entonnoir.

You have chosen a very good POV with a perspective against the blue sea and the beautiful old buildings on each side, forming these converging lines. Excellent!

Znane miejsce, bardzo ciekawie pokazane, piekne zdjęcie, super widok z góry
ChrisJ (96876) 2013-10-16 10:35
It's not often I take over 100 photos of just the one city but Venice was exceptional and no different here. I like the optical illusion of the winged lion statue appearing to be standing on the opposite shore of the Grand canal. The elevated pov is also excellent. Good sharpness and perspective. Tfs!
cornejo (30800) 2013-10-16 12:46

What a great view of the Piazzetta San Marco, wonderful perspective to the lagoon in the background, while enjoying the facades of the Doge's Palace and the Libreria Sansoviana. The presence of all these people gives a very vital to the composition.
Wonderful colorful, especially the sea and sky.
Very good image quality, sharpness is also great.
Enjoy a happy day.

une magnifique prise de vue sur la place San Marco,
la perspective est superbe, les bâtiment blancs contrastent bien avec le ciel bleu.
UlfE (14641) 2013-10-17 11:55
Excellent high perpective and very nice composition. The lighting is strong but you have mangaged really well and you could see every detail in the shaded area on the right hand side. Beautiful colours and perfect sharpness. TFS and have a nice evening!
mvdisco (17760) 2013-10-17 16:37
Hi Gosia, Bonjour,
Beautiful presentation and composition of the Piazzetta di San Marco in Venise,,
Great perpective and architecture,
Excellent capture and details,
aleXundar (1256) 2013-10-18 0:28
What a great view! Two different architecture, one in light, the other in shade - as if pointing towards the blue background.Excellent PoV and great clarity. The tiny human figures add life and scale in the composition.
Tfs for a magnificent shot.
kato (11630) 2013-10-18 3:15
You're capturing well this place by a good angle, a good harmony and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beautiful open space inserted into the historical building of both sides and blue/clean lagoon which is beyond it. There are many tourists in open space. And, the shadow projected to the open space draws out a good effect.
mirosu (13340) 2013-10-18 3:25
I like very much how balanced and elegant this composition looks as you have employed the elements that define the scenery, the colours and the perspectives in an excellent way. We get a great idea of this beautiful Venice place; depth and clarity are superb. Apart from that, even beyond the physical description, the picture is a delight to look at for its beautiful light and bright contrasting colours. Well done.
mjw364 (7340) 2013-10-19 1:27
Nicely composed and excellent use of light and shade to define the areas of contrast and shape in the shot. Well observed and carefully composed.

Merveilleuse architecture pleine de détails entre l'ombre et la lumière, grand monde sur cette jolie place donnant sur la mer, très belle présentation et bravo pour le POV
ourania (30351) 2013-10-20 12:57
I love the architecture and the view as well as the way you found to present it in a graphical and elegant composition with wonderful contrasting colours. Your attention in framing and adjusting the perspectives is reamarkable. Despite the lack of symmetry there's great balance and harmony in your composition. The colours of sky and water are amazing and I like very much the way the distant view seems to be framed by the edges of the buildings and the quay. Depth, clarity and lighting are marvellous. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
