With that post I start my new series taken at unique and original Burano island famous for its colorful houses. The island is away from Venice by approx. 9 km and you can reach it from Venice by taking the water trams (vaporetto).
I've read that if the owner of a house wants to repaint it, he must ask the local authorities for permission and consent to the use of paint color. This principle on Burano is unique and their colors rarely repeat themselves.

Wow, talk about colors!
Great framing, with the small part of a blue house behind. And of course the laundry!
Must be a heaven for photographers. Waiting for more to come!

con questi colori non poteva che essere Burano, ma fra tante case hai scelto sicuramente la più bella con la sua magnifica tonalità ed i tanti elementi che la rendono ancor più viva.
Il cielo magnifico fa da ottimo contrappunto alla tinta pastello della casa.
Composizione magnifica e dettagli raffinati che non ci stanca mai di guardare.
Ciao e buona domenica

Bonjour, chère Gosia,
Voilà une maison qui est visible de loin. La couleur éclatante de la façade et de ses volets claque comme le linge séchant au soleil par grand vent.
Très bonne présentation.

So Gosia, you were delighted by the Burano colors under a bright sunshine an blue sky. I have been there but on a grey day, so the vibrancy of the houses walls and shutters were not so saturated.
mirosu (16273) 2013-11-03 1:50
Excellent house detail photo with very nice vibrant colors, perfect light, very good clarity. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions. Well done.
olive224 (2719) 2013-11-03 1:53
Went to Burano a few years ago, it's really a fantastic island for photographers isn'it ? ;)
You really get the best from those colored houses on this image !!
The light was hard but excellent for ultra saturated colors !!
snunney (101634) 2013-11-03 1:59
The owner of this house certainly wants to make a statement! Your picture encapsulates it perfectly. Beautiful saturated colours and excellent sharpness.

a ja myslalem ze budynki w Grecji i ich bialo-niebieska kolorystyka sa urzekajace:)
Tutaj kolory az "uderzaja" w oczy i tworza naprawde wyjatkowy efekt graficzny zdjecia.Wszystko razem tworzy niemalze bajkowy klimat.
Swietny kadr i mocna,wyrazista kompozycja!
Goran ma racje-to jak raj dla fotografa.
daddo (27010) 2013-11-03 2:51
Zdravo Gosia. I don't know whether this colour combination should be repeated- ever.One wouldn't want to look at this house after a few drinks of vino.Hopefully the interior is more subdued. Still, it all looks fine under the Mediterranean sun.Wonderful light and details. Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.
Gigidusud (21151) 2013-11-03 3:16
Wow! Splendid composition pink and blue! Splendid light and great impact graphic. Love it!
Have a nice Sunday,
adidas5nb (5743) 2013-11-03 3:21

Noel_Byrne (32094) 2013-11-03 3:35
Now that is vivid!! Greens and pinks against whites and blues, this really is a treat for the eyes! A beautiful scene, and I can see why this place would be famous for this, it looks amazing. Thanks for sharing your crystal clear, pin sharp study in such illuminating color!
All the best

Burano, con i suoi colori, è una miniera per gli amanti della fotografia e tu hai sfruttato al meglio la situazione vantaggiosa data anche dalla bella luce e dal cielo splendido.
Fis2 (100668) 2013-11-03 4:41
Kolorystyka tego budynku robi wra¿enie.

Witaj Gosia, excellent photography of this pretty picture with the colors of the villa, very well taken in this interesting and nice picture with good sharpness, light and color. Great and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
annjackman (21899) 2013-11-03 4:52
Another gorgeous pink picture from you. The bold colours against the lovely saturated blue sky makes it look immaculate and as if from a childrens TV programme! Excellent exposure and sharpness, and an interesting note too.
Kind Regards, Ann
Sergiom (82815) 2013-11-03 5:15
J'aime ces couleurs vives de Burano. On dirait qu'il y a compétition entre les habitants de la ville pour avoir les couleurs les plus flamboyantes. Ici, le cadrage serré est excellent et soulignes bien les formes.
jjcordier (79297) 2013-11-03 7:17
Ces maisons de Burano sont un vrai régal pour les yeux; je pense que tu as réussi à trouver la plus "flashy" et en as réalisé une superbe image, colorée, lumineuse et très bien composée.
ChrisJ (116078) 2013-11-03 7:44
Another pink one! The hotc olor contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and density with punchy light contrasts. Excellent framing with adequate breathing space right around. Tfs Bon Dimanche!
ourania (47784) 2013-11-03 7:45
what a beautiful and pleasant view! Your interesting and well balanced composition makes the sight even more delightful, you've managed to moderate the irresistible vibrance of the colours and create a wonderful chromatic interaction within the frame. The light plays a major role in this feast, you have handled it very aptly bringing out fine details and the best quality in all the colours. A remarkable and enjoyable photo, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2013-11-03 8:07
very nice and colorful picture, you have managed very well light. excellent details.
rychem (38121) 2013-11-03 8:55
Stanowczo wolę takie zwariowane kolory, niż totalne szarości, bez tego koloru zdjęcie straciłoby sens, zrobiłaś zdjecie dla pozytywnie myślących :)))
jemaflor (99075) 2013-11-03 9:11
Lovely photo taken in Burano, perfect light capture, excellent angle and tones, a good memory for me, tfs.
Kamilutka (8107) 2013-11-03 9:26
ale domek wypatrzylas! Co za kolory! Ciekawe czy osoba ktora tam mieszka budzi sie zawsze w rozowym nastroju... ;-) Ponadto piekne swiatlo i bardzo dobra ostrosc sprawiaja ze fotografia zdecydowanie sie wyroznia.
Zucca (8) 2013-11-03 10:14
The colors are beautiful yet a bit surprising ! Great sharpness and beautiful blue sky.
Have a nice evening,
parvatibb (1387) 2013-11-03 10:34
Difficult to miss! Very very pink with addition of gorgeous green and yellow contrast.
Now I feel really sorry that I did not have the chance to visit when I have been to Venice.
I hope next time
Have a nice week.
rbassin (23407) 2013-11-03 12:44
une prise de vue bien cadrée, les couleurs sont très originales et lumineuses; jeux d'ombres agréable.
boa (7493) 2013-11-03 13:06
a great advantage to live here is that is easy to describe for your friends where you live, it must be impossible to miss this house:)I like houses in cheerful colors and i mean it should be less bureaucratic to paint in eye-catching colors in suitable areas. Excellent exposure, crisp and clear with fantastic colors, well done!
Have a nice Sunday.
bukitgolfb301 (42928) 2013-11-03 17:02
Hi dear Gosia
Wow so vivid and eye-catching color at all.
Killing my sleepness and so comfortable image to start new week, Perfect framework is as usual as yours.
All the best and have a good new week! TAKERO
Alco (7483) 2013-11-03 20:50
Fantastic shot of that colorful house.Hard to miss it with all those brilliant colors.Very sharp picture with very nice details.Very well done.
Have a nice week.
timecapturer (49288) 2013-11-04 2:41
an immaculate and vibrant capture this. It looks so wonderfully lived in and so full of Venetian character. Light and detailing just perfect and an eye-catching result. Amazing imagery!
Have a good week - Brian.
dkmurphys (60709) 2013-11-04 5:42
What a splendid house. It looks amazing, so many charming elements and colors...Well spotted, have a fine week.
SnapRJW (31629) 2013-11-04 8:22
Out with the sun-glasses for this one Gosia! I don't think I could live with the vibrancy and clash of colours here but what a perfect subject for your lens. The strong light has worked magic by bringing out the brilliance of colour and giving you that clear blue sky. This shot makes me think of summer holidays. Lovely to see but not to live with! Warm regards Rosemary
willperrett (11256) 2013-11-04 10:52
Your title is certainly to the point! I've been there, and I know what a stunning location it is for photography. I wonder if anyone has ever posted a black and white image from this place?? I think you've probably aided the saturation in PP, but I can't think of a better place to do it. Great, happy shot.
npecanhuk (75592) 2013-11-04 17:53
Wonderful colorful buildings!
Very beautiful, attractive and pleasant-looking picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, squarish format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
Cricri (121227) 2013-11-05 8:42
OUPS une maison rose pour moi :-) tout a fait splendide avec les volets verts, une sublime lumière, un très beau contraste des couleurs, une région ou l'on en prend plein les yeux, j'adore
fabbs99 (17167) 2013-11-07 22:24
Excellent composition with some lovely colors coupled with nice light management and presentation.Sharpness and clarity are perfect.Very well done. TFS.
NorthernLight (2383) 2013-11-08 8:03
pink - what a refreshing color for the eye. And so much pink in one piece. I'm not really sure what to think of it. On one hand, the child in me laughs and is excited about so much flashy color. On the other hand: Living in this house I would not want to. Too much color. Okay - if it was sky blue like the house behind it...then maybe... but pink...so much pink... ;-)
A great picture, very well seen and captured!
All the best
COSTANTINO (66531) 2013-11-11 4:12

serp2000 (44688) 2013-11-12 4:11
Just a fabulous composition, fantastic colors, but I can't imagine their neighbor on the street. Daily poisonous point in front of eyes. ;) Good capture of so interesting architecture in Burano.
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-11-13 10:11
I don't think I've seen pink house before but it looks good especially against the blue house and blue sky. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
Silvio1953 (146643) 2013-11-14 12:46
Ciao Gosia, I like a lot your serie from Burano with fantastic bright colors, lovely composition woith nice house, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
adores (45877) 2013-11-15 13:45
So colourful! The light is perfect and I like all those details, like the curtain and all those little flower pots. A beautiful combination of colours!
Angshu (56760) 2013-11-19 23:44
Lovely bright colour where the pink & green colour pops out, while the blue colour almost merges with the sky. You created a very effective composition with the off-centre chimney being the focal point. Good work!
Didi (60588) 2013-11-20 2:59
Very original colour for this nice house
Good lights summer ambiance, a nice place for visiting
dta (79525) 2013-11-24 2:01
