I've seen this scene with a charming view on the Grand Canal in front of the beautiful church of San Stae in Venice. The building (on my back) was founded at the beginning of 11th century and reconstructed in 17th century including a main facade from the side of the Grand Canal.

A nice capture of this intimate moment. I like the point of view and the framing offered by the adjacent lamp. The background architecture looks truly beautiful under this lovely Venetian light. Top class technical presentation. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Gosia. Stay for two in Venice is a beautiful thing. It will open the eyes and hearts. Really a very beautiful sight on the couple and the ambience.
williewhistler (13541) 2013-12-15 2:29
this is such a very well composed photograph with all of the key elements perfectly placed in the most romantic of settings.
The couple do add so much to the over all charm of this lovely shot.
Kind regards Les.

un'altra delle tue superbe foto su Venezia e anche questa perfetta nel taglio e nella composizione e assai curata sia nella scelta del soggetto, nella qualità della luce che lo illumina, quanto che nella resa del colore.
Contrasto e nitidezza eccellenti.
Ciao e buona domenica

niente di meglio che starsene a sedere in piacevole compagnia davanti a uno spettacolo come il Canal Grande.
Hai rubato un attimo di intimità per arricchire la tua composizione, insieme alla discreta presenza della ragazza in ombra che sembra vegliare su di loro.

A simple compo on this luminous and colorful scenery
A serenity feeling afforded by this view of the Grand Canal
have a nice WE, best regards

Venice is near the top of the list for romantic venues, so this is a fitting image that amplifies that motive so beautifully. Glorious clarity that makes the atmosphere here all the more palpable and appropriate. Wonderful!
Royaldevon (28455) 2013-12-15 3:07
Your sense of composition is in no doubt, with these fine guide lines and well placed focal images.
This is a most attractive scene, sharply captured in beautiful light and, then, we have the hint of romance ... !
Have a lovely day,

I love the colors and the atmosphere you've got here. Good work with light. Thanks for sharing.

Good title for this romantic composition. Very nice still summer colors, outstanding background. This photo is good alternative to the cold days of December.
Have a great new week!

A very quiet moment for this couple at the edge of the river.
Nice perspective and depth picture
Excellent composition, nice presentation and lovely colours.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
Sergiom (57851) 2013-12-15 5:40
J'aime beaucoup cette composition dans la ville idéale pour les voyages de noces. Le cadrage est parfait, n'entre pas trop dans l'intimité du couple et l'arrière plan est magique.
willperrett (6634) 2013-12-15 6:53
This is a lovely view of La Serrenissima's Canale Grand; but of course it's the human interest which grabs the attention and makes this much more than another Venetian postcard.
macjake (54940) 2013-12-15 7:19
Yes...what could be better than this right? Not much in my opinion!
Its nice to see how the area is more quiet and settled too, its a sweet and romantic ambiance. Lovely photo
fds (7844) 2013-12-15 7:23

When is so cold in winter - it is so nice to see a summer picture in Venezia, Gosia.
Well composed, beautiful canal view, and a young couple taking a break along the waterrfront.
looking on the architecture, the bright daylight was favorable and enhanced the outlines.
Have a nice new week,
SnapRJW (30687) 2013-12-15 9:05
Hello Gosia - It is said that Paris is the city of romance but judging by your shot, the same could be said of Venice. A lovely intimate moment with the couple enjoying each others company in wonderful surroundings. A lovely positive shot. Warm regards Rosemary
PaulVDV (21661) 2013-12-15 9:29
Looks like it is possible to find a quiet place at a canal in Venice, to relax and to enjoy the magnificent buildings along the waterfront. Even at the Grand Canal!
Excellent composition, luminosity and sharpness.
Best regards, Paul
gojo (1769) 2013-12-15 10:36
This is truly a very fine image from this lovely city.
chrislo (4151) 2013-12-15 11:02
A stolen moment of this couple enjoying the view without knowing you were there. I like your POV of the Grand Canal, using the couple as a starting point to let us admire the beautiful façades. The lovely architecture and the placement of the street lamp add to the flavour of the scene. Great technical quality, beautiful and natural colours. Well done.
Zengi001 (2511) 2013-12-15 11:24
Well capture of the moment with fantastic city scape in bg.
subhendu_bagchi (25513) 2013-12-15 13:46
wow! What a clear and sharp picture quality, equally well composed. Like the mood of it. Like the vibrant colour tone. Excellent shot. Tfs.
emka (76483) 2013-12-15 14:44
Nie pamietam tego koscioła za twoimi plecami, ale bardzo miła scenka nad brzegiem Canale Grande. Miło tak sobie posiedzieć na schodkach w słoneczny dzień. (Ja jednak zwykle gdzies pędzę, bez odpoczynku).
Periko (2575) 2013-12-15 22:35
Great light, perfect focusing, beautiful scene.
Waylim (25184) 2013-12-15 22:39
In contrary to my cold post, this one look warm with beautiful light, cheerful and brilliant colors all over. Venice the city of Romance, how appropriate to include a couple in the composition. It is like a post card. Love everything, the light, the color, the scenery, and the mood of romance.
Excellent quality photo as well.
jjcordier (75190) 2013-12-15 22:44
Tu confirmes par cette très belle photo que Venise est bien la ville des amoureux!
Noel_Byrne (22793) 2013-12-16 2:45
What a lovely composition you chose for this shot, not only for the couple, but also for the expansive view of the city, and all of its fine architecture! I can easily place myself in the scene with the couple and enjoy the view as they do. The light is beautiful showing so much detail in the buildings and the lamp post is at a perfect point in the frame too.
Thanks as always
olive224 (2719) 2013-12-16 7:33
Venise is really the romantic city !
Nice catch and nice framing
Cricri (104511) 2013-12-16 11:38
Une très jolie réalisation , romantique et pleine de charme, bonne lumière, couleur du canal, et des façades, très belle présentation
CLODO (29914) 2013-12-18 3:01
I appreciate the couple sitting in front of the Grand canal, discovering the charms of this city. I would have tried to clone the plastic bag, ugly detail of this century!
mesutilgim (82344) 2013-12-21 10:40
Very nice capture from Venice ! Good observed and composed.
The oldfashioned streetlamp at right part adds a unique taste to your compo.
TFS and have a nice weekend
Schnappilic (9690) 2013-12-22 0:37
A romantic composition taken in one of the most romantic place of Earth. The result is superb! Congratulations!
SWEETFREEDOM (22292) 2013-12-22 5:02
beautiful light and colors, i like the empty scene filled only by the couples in fg.
Nicou (119547) 2013-12-22 6:03
sueprbe vue et iamge des ceux amoureux dans ce décor quelle compo et iamge avec le lampadaire le plan d'eau et ces façades en fond quel bel ensemble.
Bravo et amitié
ChrisJ (95900) 2013-12-26 11:56
This brings back fond memories of summer. Good sharpness and I like the way the oblique diagonal pavement starts in the bottom left corner to add dynamics and linear perspective. The romantic couple animate the scene. Good color, sharpness and saturation. Have a great weekend!
delpeoples (52931) 2013-12-30 3:31
Witaj dear Gosia
A typically Italian, or better, typically Venetian photo. So romantic, so elegant and well-composed. The colours are delightful and I like the diagonal lines which shoot out of the FG corner.
Excellent work and I wish you a wonderful New Year.
bona (12457) 2014-01-04 6:28
It is very romantic indeed. I can feel love in the air with your photo. Great colors and light to made this sensation.

Bardzo ladna scenka, Malgosiu.
Podoba mi sie jej naturalnosc. Siedzaca na brzegu para stanowi prawie ze jedyny ludzki element i urozmaica wenecki krajobraz. Bardzo ladne swiatlo i kolory.
