The variety of boats struggling to negotiate the 'basic streets' of the Venetian canal system gives that same kind of exotic take on urban bustle that makes SE Asia so appealing.

An excellent daily life shot, beautifully composed and framed. I like the juxtaposition between the passing boats against that marvellous backdrop. Very good light and shadow contrasts. Excellent colours and sharpness.

A rather different picture of "la Serenissima". It shows daily life and not only the ordinary tarted up facades. You managed the difficult light very skillfully here. Not an everyday photo ...!

A nice juxtapositioning of the more traditional gondola at left, againt the larger, & more modern craft at right. Good sharpness, with the canal adding superb lead in lines. Tfs!

A good setting here Richard. The tight crop seems to be just the right to present the life on the canals in this famous city. The boats and persons adds the right portion of action to increast the interest for the presented photo.
