Un pont très photogénique et bien mis en valeur même si la photo manque un peu de définition.
C'est bien cadré.

I remember being taken for a trip in a gondola by a singing Italian under this bridge, many years ago.
Happy days! T.F.S.

A nice view on this famous bridge, good symetrical photo, interesting effect with depth with the perspective of the canal, good light management.
