Last week I spent in the amazing city of Venice. With its canals, charming small streets and wonderful old architecture it's for sure one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.
Here is a view on Ca’ Corner della Regina which is considered the first architectural example to introduce non-Baroque parameters as dominant themes, even if some elements of the prior style remain. Built between 1724 and 1728 by Domenico Rossi for the Corner family of San Cassiano atop the ruins of the palazzo in which Caterina Corner—future queen of Cyprus—was born, it displays an architecture stylistically reminiscent of Baldassare Longhena’s nearby Ca’ Pesaro, the current venue of the Galleria Internazionale d’Arte Moderna.

troche czekalismy na twoje nowe zdjecie...ale bylo warto!
Swietny kadr(szczegolnie podoba mi sie pierwszy plan i lodka dajaca wrazenie jakby obraz byl trojwymiarowy)
Poza tym super kolory,kontrast i swiatlo dodajace calej scenie duzo uroku i sprawiajace,ze zdjecie jest tak wyraziste.

Prawie jak 3D - ta łódź/gondola sprawia wrażenie jakby wychodziła ze zdjęcia. Ładne ujecie, ładne kolory. Tukus wody, błękit nieba białe ściany budynków - wszystko ładnie harmonijnie współgra.

namaste, a nice one. Very eye catching colours. Great perspective. Nice light. The boat is looking nice in blue and acted as a good leading line to the buildings at background. Nice one. Tfs.
snunney (76508) 2013-09-09 2:20
The light is positively splendid whilst the blue covered gondola makes a wonderfully apt pointer toward the delightful background architecture. I like this full on point of view and the framing offered by the mooring posts. Technical presentation is top class as is the composition.
jemaflor (77532) 2013-09-09 3:00
A well composed view with gondola and palace, good sharpness and exposure.

Une belle image de cette superbe ville qui m'a enchantée lors de mon passage. Deux emblèmes de la ville : les palaces et la gondole.

A true artistic scene. Lovely colors and an interesting moment, people free!!! Amazing for a place like Venice...
Enjoy a nice week.

excellent composition from boat and buildings you captured.
Noel_Byrne (17381) 2013-09-09 5:03
A classically beautiful scene, the architecture is so fine, particularly above the canal, and the gondola is composed perfectly to add really nice depth to the whole composition. The sky is beautiful and the light perfect for the scene.
Thanks for sharing

iconic and beautiful study of this TE favourite. Love your POV and the gloriously sharp detailing here. The setting and light here are just captivating and the image one of real quality and appeal.
Have a good week - Brian.

sei scomparsa da TE da un po' di tempo, ma hai fatto un ritorno eccellente con questa bella ripresa fatta nella città di Venezia, caratterizzata da una bella composizione, un eccellente punto di ripresa e da colori e nitidezza di tutto rispetto.
Un ritorno molto gradito per una delle mie fotografe preferite per capacità tecnica ed inventiva.
Ciao e buona giornata

A very beautiful picture! Here we can very clearly see the asymmetrical forms of a gondola. They have to be built with a slight curve so the gondolier can be handling the oar from one side only, and still row along a straight line. The beautiful buildings in the background add further interest to this picture. Also very attractive colours!
gojo (1635) 2013-09-09 7:36
A real eye catcher from this spectacular city. Great framing and fine details.
yquem46 (38118) 2013-09-09 7:47
seen a million times, though with splendid colors and gorgeous luminosity here
Superbly simple, simply superb
PiotrF (2382) 2013-09-09 10:31
Data zrobienia zdjęcia pasuje do terminu weneckich lwów. Może gdzieś udało Ci się złapać w kadr W-W-W / Wałęsa-Wajda-Więckiewicz? To wszystko działo się na Lido, ale Twój wenecki kadr całkiem przyjemny. Lubię takie wenecki zdjęcia gdzie nie ma tłumów, choć w tym mieście trochę o to trudno
holmertz (34757) 2013-09-09 11:03
This is a superb photo. You have captured the essence of Venice without any of the common features that cater mainly for tourists. Just the wooden poles, a gondola covered with a bright blue tarpaulin, green water and some magnificent buildings in the background. It looks som deceivingly simple but is really a very refined composition.
PaulVDV (19395) 2013-09-09 12:06
A wonderful, clear, bright and colourful picture of Venice!
Perfect sharpness. Very good DOF.
Best regards, Paul
archimatica (20232) 2013-09-09 13:03
Very elegant post, so minimalistic, so strong.
I like it!
Alco (6068) 2013-09-09 13:15
Fantastic picture of that place.The point of view behind the boat leads our eyes to those beautiful buildings.I like the contrasting colors offered by the boat and the water.Superb colors.Very well done.
Have a nice day.
willperrett (5174) 2013-09-09 13:45
Definitely a classic of its kind. Beautifully composed, with your wide-angle lens allowing great depth, and elongating the gondola to good effect.
carlo62 (23828) 2013-09-09 14:01
finalmente una nuova foto e che foto, un vero spettacolo.
C'è profondità, colore, un ottimo taglio e tanta....poesia.
gervaso (9277) 2013-09-09 14:13
Beautiful picture of Venice, with great colors, especially of the water and the sky! The perspective is also very good with the boat in the foreground! Wonderful composition! Well done!
emka (68788) 2013-09-09 17:11
Tydzień w Wenecji, jak romantycznie! Tak jak zauważyli moi poprzednicy, ta łodka wychodzi ze zdjecia, uzyskałaś niesamowity efekt. I jakie bajeczne kolory. Wspaniałe zdjęcie. Pozdrawiam Małgorzata
jjcordier (70615) 2013-09-09 23:13
Une photo de très belle qualité, lumineuse et bien composée, de cette superbe ville de Venise où tu as du faire une belle récolte d'images que l'on a hâte d'admirer.
CLODO (27708) 2013-09-10 3:10
Venice revisited, with the canal water transparency, and you show us that the gondolas are not straight but curved to help the man to direct them more easily. A good patchwork of blue-green colors.
bayno (18340) 2013-09-10 7:24
a 3D picture with great details and lovely colors...wonderful compo...
dta (60313) 2013-09-10 7:33
Hello Gosia ,
A superb composition of Venice . I like especailly how you've managed the back light on the white façades .
jcpix (9324) 2013-09-10 21:00
Pictures from Venice never get old, they are without doubt timeless classics. It's so difficult to resist taking one along the waterways without featuring a gondola, and no matter how many times they're shown, it's a quintessential fabric of the city that is always a beauty! :)
This is a bit uncommon in it's solitary placement, set in front of an unfamiliar building...for me anyway...so it's nice to see a new take on an old classic. Very well taken, plenty of light and sharp detail to go along with a wonderfully maintained composition which includes key elements of this unique city. Have a great day ahead. Take care.
mjw364 (6522) 2013-09-11 3:38
Lovely blue and aqua green in this well composed shot. Great POV.
ChrisJ (93442) 2013-09-11 11:30
Ah, Vence. Spent a lovely 2 days there earlier this year and got some great shots. This brings back nice memories. Terrific reflections on the water with the solitary gondola making a fine focal point. Good graphism and sharpness. Nice warm cold colour contrasts between the blue and red. Tfs!
bukitgolfb301 (33772) 2013-09-12 1:04

Grandiose image quel vert de l'eau avec ces pieux de bois et ces édifices en fond quel bleu sur la gondole quel cadrage grandiose image.
Bravo et amitié

Bardzo udana praca.
Dobrze skomponowany kadr i super kolorystyka.
Przywolalas wspomnienia ;)
papagolf21 (81722) 2013-09-15 23:51
Image romantique à souhait. Un cadrage très judicieux pour valoriser la beauté d'ensemble.
Cela donne envie de tout laisser et de se rendre à Venise pour en profiter.
Très bonne journée.
ourania (22868) 2013-09-16 11:24
a wonderful photo of mesmerising light and colours that make the observation of the lovely architecture and the iconic elements very pleasant. I love the foreground with the perspective of the gondola and the graphism of the poles. There's superb definition on the architecture, even in the very luminous parts. The atmosphere is very delightful. Great work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
PS There's a photography exhibition these days on Leros: "Venezia alle Finestre" by Riccardo Zipoli, professor of Photography. He made a very interesting presentation regarding the capture of reflections on the windows of the magnificent buildings of Venice. His work on this subject has been published in a book.
claudeD (28958) 2013-09-18 2:31
very fine picture from Venice showing this interesting location with much details. I like your choice for vertical format.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
SWEETFREEDOM (20840) 2013-09-20 4:21

mesutilgim (76920) 2013-09-21 12:48
Amaing capture from Venice !
Perfect pov and very good pictorial geometry.
The blue coverage of the gondola adds a unique taste to your compo.
TFS and have a nice weekend
daddo (21512) 2013-09-22 1:07
I missed this beautiful shot. Splendid colours and light. Venetian magic thanks to your creative POV and selection of subject.Really a special result Gosia. Srdacni pozdrav. Klaudio.
lgir (6673) 2013-09-22 6:00
beautiful composition of a good depth of field between the gondola and the houses, and with beautiful contrasts.
SnapRJW (27158) 2013-09-22 8:57
Hello Gosia - Venice is a city that I would love to visit and I imagine a photographer's dream destination. Beautiful architecture, water and boats are all subjects which delight and here you have a beautiful combination and presentation. Your shot has a super immediacy and I feel almost able to reach out and touch the boat. I love your straight-on view too. Beautiful shot! Warm regards Rosemary
worldcitizen (6141) 2013-09-22 14:41
This is a Venice classic. I actually like seeing this gondola covered up; the blue covering is so colorful and bright. I like the buildings in the background, and the way they go from tallest to shortest as we move from left to right. The color of the water is even great. All of the elements in this shot come together perfectly.
Graal (94194) 2013-09-22 23:38
bardzo fajne weneckie wspomnienie. Gondola jakby zawieszona w powietrzu. Bdb kadr i jakosc zdjecia. Podoba mi sie.
Schnappilic (9682) 2013-09-23 12:43
A spectacular framing from Venice. The boat from foreground seems to be suspended above the water. TFS!
annjackman (16861) 2013-09-26 4:02
An iconic scene from Venice. I like the gondola and poles strongly in the FG. The colours and sharpness are exquisite. This is a picture that makes me want to visit Venice agin soon.
KInd Regards, Ann

brianmcc (5917) 2013-09-28 10:29
this is a wonderful picture, very nicely composed and presented. i love the gondola in the centre of the frame, almost within reach of the viewer. the colours are superb and very appealing.
abmdsudi (36444) 2013-09-29 10:39
A typical scene of Venice with the contrasting gondola serves as strong focal guiding the eyes into the picture. It's perfectly framed, excellent clarity and tones, good details too - well captured and processed. Great photo work that excels in my eyes. Congrats.
Silvio1953 (111238) 2013-09-29 11:01
