Classical view of the Grand Canal.
Some info from http://en.wikipedia.org:
Canale Grande is the most important waterway in Venice, Italy. It forms one of the major water-traffic corridors in the city. Public transportation is provided by the water bus and by private water taxis. Running through most of the city, it "starts" from the lagoon near the train station, makes a large S-shape through the central districts, the "sestiere" of Venice, and ends at the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, near Piazza San Marco (Saint Mark's Square), with an average depth or five meters. Its banks are lined with some of the most beautiful buildings of the city, amongst the many palazzos are the Ca' Rezzonico, Ca d'Oro, Ca' Foscari, Palazzo Barbarigo and the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, housing the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. The churches along the canal include Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute and Il Redentore.
People can take a ferry ride across the canal by standing-up on the deck of a simple gondola called traghetto.

You must know very well how difficult it is to impress the people with the shot from the Venice. It's one of the most photographed place on the planet i reckon.
But i would like to say that i like your work with this one. The big lamp looks well and the famous gondolas are always a great subject of the photo. Eternal Venezia.
