Elle est magnifique cette basilique toute illuminée vue sous cet angle. La couleur du ciel est superbe et la présence de la pleine lune ajoute à la composition. Bien fait.

Absolutely stupendous! The view of the Santa Maria della Salute seen from the water is always beautiful. But with the full moon hovering above, the sharpness of the image, the colors... this truly is one of the finest images I've seen of the great church. Here is another view along with some of its history.
Warm regards, and welcome to Trekearth,

Very nice picture of that basilica under a perfect lighting. The inclusion of the moon is a superb addition to your picture. Nice foregroung with all these reflections of the lights on the water. Very well done.
Have a nice day.

This is a very nice picture, with a perfect light management.
I guess that the moon has been pasted on this picture during a post-production work, because it doesn't seem to be natural.

Hello Nick - I like your composition and the sharpness and fine detail in the architecture but I find the PP work across the sky a little rough. The overall look is very attractive but when the shot is viewed at full size there are some noticeable artifacts around the margins of the skyline and buildings. One of the statues has got caught up in your softening process and almost obliterated. Is the sky a pasted addition? It looks quite surreal, not that I have a problem with manipulation I just feel that for such an attractive image attention to detail is important. You seem to have a very good eye for composition and balance and I think in a case like this it is worth being a bit picky with your PP.
Nicely tried though and worth the 2 points!
