Dodge's Palace in the late april afternoon.
Some info from the http://www.venetia.it/m_ducale_eng.htm:
"The Ducal Palace was the residence of the Doge up to the fall of the Venetian Republic in I797 a public palace and seat of the administration of justice. The highest and richest symbol of Venetian civilisation, of its cultural, military, political and economic history. All historic periods are represented in an extraordinary stratification of structural and decorative elements: from the antique foundations of the original Gothic complex, to the great halls dedicated to political life and decorated by the canvases of Veronese. Tintoretto and the great masters of the Renaissance. To the precious rooms of the Doges apartment, from the dark prisons and places of torture to the luminous loggias on the Piazza and the Lagoon."

I like the composition showing the detail in the lantern and the architecture behind. The colours and sharpness are both good.

your thought has been excellent in terms of creativity. everyone would think of the palace, but in order to get a stronger composition you were there to include the light post too . Nice POV
