Typical "street" scene in the town of Burano, which is well known for it's very colourful buildings. While it lacks the history and grandeur of Venice, this small town in the Venice Lagoon has a much brighter palate of colours, making it very popular with photographers. Unfortunately they were doing some construction on the manin canal which really restricted the views there, and this was the best I could do. Well worth the visit.

Superbe les couleurs, des facades au multiples teintes vives.
Le point de vue est bien choisi. Les reflets sont sympas.

At first I thought it's south America, they have those amazing colors.
Great POV,looks very nice.
I like that kind of broken mirror image in the water.

Wonderful colour & superb symmetrical reflections. The bland esplanade & walkway makes a fine diagonal lead in line. Tfs!

cet endroit, aux couleurs peut-être excessives, m'a fasciné lors de mes séjours à Venise. Tu en as tiré une très belle photo.

Hi Alvin, I have taken upon myself to simply bowse the various galleries and see the talent it hides...and why did I not see this before. Its a painting. So well composed, so beautifully seen

Wonderful colors here !
I like a lot the reflections, and how you found perspective and depth.
Have a nice day,
nwoehnl (122) 2008-12-08 6:56
Very nice the vivid colors in this one, Alvin. Technically impeccable and nice how the impact of that vivid row of typical houses is amplified by the reflections on the lagoon. Well seen and captured.
Dyerco (10185) 2008-12-08 7:26
What a super view with the reflections of all the colours. I like the washing hanging on the lines. It must have been a Monday. Ha! Ha!
Kielia (23225) 2008-12-08 11:08
impressions of Burano always catch my attention and your composition is very attractive due to the wonderful light and the bright colors, really a pleasure for the eyes. But most of all I like the amazing reflections! TFS!

AiresSantos (56155) 2008-12-09 7:57

TFs and have a nice day
axiotea (21649) 2008-12-09 8:06
The light emphazised the famous colors of Burano which are always a pleasure for the eye! beautiful reflections captured in the mirrorlike canal adding to the graphism of the vertical buildings.
BlueRaven (37) 2008-12-09 8:48
Awesome colours! The composition couldn't be better. This is definitely one of the best shots I've seen on TE lately.
Thanks for sharing, best wishes
jonathan_hart (21274) 2008-12-09 22:42
even the bags of the ladies are well matched with the colored fronts of these houses, the pink facade is really attractive ! excellent levels, even in the reflections
jhm (137482) 2008-12-10 4:01
Colourfully image with the front in various colours.
I know very well that this not easy picture are, for take, but you did very well.
Excellent reflection too.
A very well perspective. TFS.

Hi, Alvin -
Great job in the restricted circumstances - including the harsh midday light. Nice angles and grouping. Are the buildings really that strongly colored? I have to say it does look oversaturated.
delkoo (68) 2008-12-11 12:40
this is truly exceptional, the subject, the light, the colors and reflection all combine to make great picture.
marietom (34607) 2008-12-20 6:50
Excellentes, toutes ces couleurs, et ces beaux reflets. C'est un endroit que j'aimerais voir un jour. Belle image.
CLODO (29914) 2008-12-20 9:52
Great shot of Burano, with plenty of colored houses, a paradise for photographers. Clothes drying is the sun is typical from Italy
alvaraalto (6173) 2008-12-21 14:16
Splendid this front with all that colourful, cheerful facades. It is really worth to have that reflection, so we can enjoy it twice. There must live happy people here.

mumek (20198) 2009-01-06 14:48
Looks like a beautiful water colour painting.Excellent play of the colours, light and shadows
Flavia (10352) 2009-02-03 8:33
I love colorful houses so this town is really for me! You did a great job despite the limitations you describe, it was maybe even good as it made you look for a diferent POV and a close-up on this pearls!
