Santa Maria della Salute referred to by most locals as simply Salute is probably one of the most photographed structures in Venice. The church was built in the 17th century after a deadly wave of the plague had passed. It sits on a narrow strip of land between the Grand Canal and the St. Mark's Basin. By: aviewoncities.com

Quelle belle lumière en diagonale frappait la facade de l'église ce matin là. J'aime beaucoup la diagonale dans l'image qui donne de la profondeur à la composition. Le ciel est magique.

Excellent capture of this awesome looking architecture under a perfect lighting. Your side viewpoint allows perspective and a sense of depth to be found. The delicious late afternoon light brings out the remarkable beauty of the buildings and gives the whole picture a marvellous atmosphere. Splendid colours and great sharpness. You really have a very good eye for composition and balance. Very well done.
Have a nice weekend.

what an incredible church and your very nicely considered composition shows the buildings around it to be just as beautiful too. The light really could not be better as it is lighting the subject superbly and creating fine shadows in along the intricate details. Very nicely done

Great architecture, very well framed, the composition with palace and dome is perfect, what a beautiful light, bravo.
carlo62 (46575) 2014-06-07 8:48
a parte la bellezza dei palazzi veneziani, qui abbiamo una luce molto calda che si riflette anche sul blu dell'acqua che, come il cielo, contrasta meravigliosamente con questa luce.

Sublime lumière venant joliment caresser les édifices somptueux du Grand Canal.
La beauté dans toute sa splendeur.

Usually St. Marks gets frequent billing, so your view of Santa Maria della Salute is a revelation, at least for me.
Attractive composition for the golden lighting of the intricate Venetian architecture, the front portion of 3 layers of different arch styles, then the main dome behind, all a wonderland for the eyes.

Super capture and personal angle of the well known church, but the rays of the failing sun gives a golden color reflected on the waters creating a new way to admire the building
Very well done,tfs

I like this afternoon light.
The focusing on the impressive and beautiful church is excellent.
Alco (7337) 2014-06-07 21:29
Very nice Church with a superb architecture contrasting with that beautiful blue sky. I also like very much the architecture of the building on the right. Very well done. TFS.
Have a nice Sunday.

I think you have a solid shot and there's a pulling power on the grandeur of this historic building packed with enormous detail and textures with good scale proportion. A capture delicately handled with lovely touch of low warm light depicting the serene ambient and so stunningly set off to blue background. The shimmering water adds the extra ooomph to this
impressive shot which is expertly exposed and composed. My compliments :)

Superbe lumière du soir sur Santa Maria della Salute et le beau palais voisin. Très belle photo vénitienne.

Exquisite light Gosia and what very beautiful details you have captured here. The colours and contrasts are exceptional.
I love the atmosphere here.

Bardzo piekne sa w tym zdjeciu kolory, szczegolnie pomieszane cieple i zimne odcienie w odbiciach w wodzie. Sliczna pocztowka z Wenecji.
sabermonajati (11189) 2014-06-10 6:08
wonderful view from this church you captured.

The person responsible of the 'search light' set fire to the elaborate duomo of Santa Maria and neighbouring buildings for the grand finale of this architecture show before the curtain falls for good!
ikeharel (69941) 2014-06-14 6:41
Golden tones with excelent contrast to blue, Gosia.
Fine each of the smallest detail, show the great architecture on the waterfront facade.
Nice photojob done, enjoy your weekend,

Nice light over the Santa Maria della Salute, and even more on the Palazzo. Grea focus on venitian architecture. You'd got the chance to be alone on the Canale Grande.
ahmet54 (3177) 2014-06-28 13:00
I like that evening light on the marble stone. It's a great picture. TFS,
macjake (67188) 2014-06-30 10:16
its so much fun visiting your gallery from Venice after just recently being here myself.
Its fun to see how you saw the city through your lens :)
great attention to detail by cropping the scene at the far right so smartly.
I can recognize the differnt types of boats too.
hard to imagine living here during the Plague...ouch!
lovely photo take on the side angle to show off the light and architecture. well done as usual.
enjoy your day
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-08-07 11:38
You very much lovely captured this beautiful Church. Excellent color, good light control and helping you opposite directional light to the Church. Beautiful color variation due to reflected blue color of the sky in water. Good detailing.
MOST IMPRESSIVE AND VIVID IMAGE.
best wishes and thanks for sharing.
