This picture was taken from the Calatrava bridge an afternoon in Venice. We had been walking in the city centre for some hours, and after taking the water bus some stops, I had some time waiting here for the rest of the family. Suddenly the sun was shinging again, and of course, I had to take advantage of the fine light.

haha...at first glance i thought this was Prague!
i'm surprised how similar they look, at least from this POV anyways.
you captured the optimum lighting here, very soft, warm and just the right amount of glow, a bit more and the buildings would have been over exposed.
excellent compo with the curvature around the corner.
it all works well for me!!
enjoy your day

Wonderful shot from Venice and untypical because everyone takes shots in the historical part of the town and you took it in the "normal" district of Venice.
Good composition with superb exposition! TFS

I like this warm light of setting sun, beautiful picture of Venice with excellent diagonal composition

Hello Erling - The warm light illuminates the buildings while leaving the opposite bank in shade giving the shot attractive contrasts. Your vantage point enabled you to compose and attractive shot on the diagonal and the large expanse of water gives the shot an open aspect which I like. Warm regards Rosemary

one of the most photographed cities in the world,but seen through your lens it looks so fresh and original.
And of course this lovely,ambient light which helps you to create so unique mood of the scene and affect so nicely the color scheme of the picture.Another aspect bound up with the light is the play of light&shades it creates(and the contrast between these parts of the image is really strong and captivating).
Like I wrote-famous city,but you were able to find and to create something unique we haven´t seen before.
Wish You a nice evening

Hello Erling ,
The composition is splendid , with the red boat well palced in the Fg , and the late afternoon light creates a beautiful mood . A little detail : it would have been better with the top of the superb cloudy formation .

Thank you for the kind remarks today on my photo, much appreciated! I didn't instantly recognize this as Venice from the thumbnail image, and that's what makes this so effective. A city that is so well known, whether you've been there or not, is virtually impossible not to perceive through pictures...and yet, you've presented a view that I can't ever recall seeing before. Love it! The light you've captured is a fine compliment to this unique location and sets the tone for this shot. It's all so very exciting and welcoming, you've done it proud. Compliments on presenting an original vantage point. Enjoy the day ahead.
All the best,

Non seulement tu as Venise et son Grand Canal mais on t'offre, en plus, un superbe ciel!

I live very close to Bruges this as small Venice of North, we get almost the same pictures to see.
Perspective and depth are on these picture nice done.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

a very fascinating image with a fantastic mood - and a great impression of this already well known canal, very nicely composed with an excellent perspective. My compliments!

innanzitutto grazie per la tua preferenza.
Non posso fare a meno di elogiarti per questa visione particolarmente efficace della città di Venezia che appare insolita perchè ripresa dal Ponte di Calatrava, ma che riprende il primo tratto del Canal Grande con una luce stupenda che illumina i palazzi lungo la sua riva e mette in risalto la cupola della Chiesa di S. Maria della Salute e una piccola parte del Ponte di Rialto.
Una luce splendida ed una nitidezza alla quale siamo abituati osservando le tue foto scattate in Norvegia ed in particolare nella città di Bergen e che hai saputo trasportare sapientemente nella bella città veneta.
Complimenti : luminosità, colori, nitidezza e composizione sono semprte di ottima fattura. Bravissimo.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
