I had one comment from a graphic artist that this looks a lot like a painting. It was one of the 'backstreets' of Venice & I use that term very loosely for obvious reasons. Spotted it when searching for a hotel on arrival. The people seem vertical in this image but the buildings don't seem level. Maybe an optical illusion?

In Venice wherever you go, in every direction there is something to shoot. This backstreet view is also splendid with beautiful houses nice life scenes and of course moody canal. I see the hotel behind the bridge, was it your?
have a nice weekend MAlgo

nice summer post card from Venice. Bridge is very nice. Good shot from fine POV. One can see, that tourists aren't missing also in backstreets.
Have a nice WE.

This 'backstreet' is certainly full of life. I notice that tourists are everywhere in Venice.
Perhaps no big palaces on this picture, but all beautiful houses along the canal. The colours of their facades are reflected well in the rippling water of the canal.
Best regards, Paul

a nice view about this lovely town, Well composed with the small bridge and the canal in the FG, good light capture.

beautifully gentle and iconic shot of the less photographed part of Venice. I must admit I loved wandering around the less touristy parts and this is just what it is like. Old buildings full of character and little canal bridges that just add to the ambience and charm of the place. Wonderful!
Enjoy your weekend - B.

I see that five years apart we were at the same spot. Of the hundreds of bridges in Venice, here is my version. As we've both shown, it is difficult to take a poor photo in Venice. Warm regards,

It is the backstreets where daily life goes on untouched by the usual horde of tourists. I like this lively shot; it is nicely lit and well composed, making good use of the bridge as a focal point. The people and the boats dotted about with not a gondola in sight all contribute to the atmosphere of the image. Have a good week end.

Même les petites ruelles vénitiennes sont spectaculaires. Ici le point de vue permet de voir sous le petit pont la barque qui arrive dans ta direction. J'aime l'animation qu'apporte les gens.

I guess it is quite hard to take bad photo in Venice :-) and this is not an exception. You managed to catch well and the typical architecture and some pedestrians who give the scene some reality. Good POV and nice warm colors.
Thanks for sharing

We a canal just like this, inside the Venetian Casino! Except yours is real, ours is fake. Nice capture of this canal scene with good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

The real life of a city is far away from the crowds of tourists, beautiful place, lovely bridge, very nice scene

This is far from the very famous places, where all the tourists gather. This is equally pleasant and attractive and this place should deserve more attention. A very good and interesting picture!

Oh, Venice... I really miss this charming and stunning city... So nice to see such a beautiful picture from you. Well seen and composed scene. Like the way the light supported the tonalities of the buildings to create a really wonderful sight. TFS!
Have a nice evening!

Tout le charme de Venise, même sans les gondoles:-) j'aime la vue en dessous du petit pont, de la vie que donne les personnes, l'effet de lumière et de reflets dans le canal
