The picture is taken in sestiere Cannaregio, one of the six Venice's divisions.
The sestieri are the primary traditional divisions of Venice. The city is divided into the six districts of Cannaregio, San Polo, Dorsoduro (including the Giudecca), Santa Croce, San Marco (including San Giorgio Maggiore), and Castello (including San Pietro di Castello and Sant'Elena). At the front of the Gondolas that work in the city there is a large piece of metal intended as a likeness of the Doge's hat. On this sit six notches pointing forwards and one pointing backwards. Each of these represent one of the Sestieri (the one which points backwards represents Giudecca).

Beautiful color .. evocative color perfect for this place .. I don't know if I have ever seen a Venetian image so empty and still .. I agree with Pat that it needs more sharpness .. I bet the original at large size is really impressive.
