A gondolier and gondola on the Grand Canal of Venice near the Rialto Bridge. Venice is unlike almost any other city in the world, with only a few water towns in China coming close or even equalling to its grandeur. It was nice to see the real thing after seeing the Las Vegas Venice Hotel in 2008.

Venise vu sous un angle intéressant, qui montre un front de bâtiments d'une grande richesse architecturale; gondolier bien positionné dans cette perspective.

I'll never get tired of such views!
haha...the Vegas Venice has nothing compared to this!
and to think i'll be here in June 2014 :)
even though the light is a bit strong on the far right, it still doesn't even come close to taking away from the enchantment and ambiance of the entire scene.
love the scene for what it is, great post!

Well composed your view with nice perspective on the canal and the palaces, perfect focal point with gondola, beautiful light.

The distance between the gondolas is giving depth to the composition. You have captured well the action of the gondolier. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the gondola. The evening light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

questa è Venezia, acqua, gondole e bei palazzi, tutti racchiusi in questa bella composizione.
Molto bella la luce che colpisce le facciate e il riflesso che procura.

La vraie Venise n'a pas grand chose à voir avec sa pâle réplique de Las Vegas!jolie lumière sur les façades du Grand Canal, le gondolier incontournable formant un bon premier plan.

Very nice double perspective with the buildings and the gondola
Lights direction give a nice 3D effect

Who could doubt this was a picture from Venice:-) A classical view from that beautiful city but one well worth seeing. The shot is well composed with the gondola perfectly placed to create a wonderful perspective along the canal. Superb light and colours; excellent colours.
Sergiom (64047) 2013-12-05 4:38
J'aime le point de vue, comme derrière l'épaule du gondolier. On peut voir la direction ou il se dirige et la très belle profondeur de l'image. Les couleurs sont superbes.

Venezia is the most photographed town on Te, only Paris almost a match, Chris.
Nice view along the waterfront houses, DOF and clarity best under the daylight, and a vivid multi-tones collected.

quelle vue sur cette gondole sueprbe image avec les amoureux et la lignées de façades de maisons fantastique vue et ensemble sueprbe.
Bravo et amitié

non c'è dubbio che Venezia è unica e le imitazioni come quella di Las Vegas sono piccola cosa davantio alla realtà del canal Grande.
In questa foto se ne apprezza tutta la grandezza anche perchè l'hai scattata da un'imbarcazione nello stesso canale e la vista ad altezza d'uomo aumenta la sensazione di bvellezza che esso riesce a suscitare in chiunque abbia modo di visitarlo.
Ottimi anche i colori ed eccellenti nitidezza e contrasto.
Ciao e buona serata

SnapRJW (31623) 2013-12-06 3:27
A classic subject but no less enjoyable for that Chris. Good light across the facades brings out the colours and detail and your composition gives a good idea of the size of the Grand Canal. Attractive work and I can believe your prefer the real thing above a pastiche! Warm regards Rosemary

Ciao Chris, lovely composition with beautiful gondola in FG, excellent perspective, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
nikkitta (15788) 2013-12-06 10:54
Clasical view of Venice but well composed capture with the colores houses between blue sky and waters of the Main Channel with a long perspective, nice natural colors and the gondolier at the first plan to give the turistical touch
Enjoy your day (or what remainds of it)
eldancer1 (30064) 2013-12-11 10:11
Yes, your image of Venice looks more real than the one we have in Vegas. Awesome capture! I like the lighting with good details. Well done, tfs.
delpeoples (54173) 2013-12-11 17:58
An instantly recognisable photo, the one difference being that it is of superb quality. The way you composed it is stunning, with the gondola at an angle, guiding the eye to the right of the frame and the magnificent architecture in the BG. You did really well here to retain the details in shade and not blow out the BG colour which are in strong sunlight. A beautiful photo of La Serenissima.
All the best

Quelle belle présentation si prêt du gondolier, il semble être bien sur sa gondole, il chante peut être :-) j'aime la perspective des maisons au bord du canal baignée par une belle lumière, une image bien réaliser et bien romantique
