This is a nice blue hour shot! Your composition and POV are great using the canal and the lights to lead the eye through the photo. The lighting and colors are great with nice sharpness and DOF.

Nice portrayal of the Grand Canal during the blue hour. My favorite bit is the dancing light from the reflections in the water on the right hand side. The exposure is well controlled but I do see some haloing where the edges of the sky and buildings meet from the PP. Very slight in this size but it would show up more in a larger version.

A wonderful night shot, a perfect POV and composition. Lovely colors and reflections. Sharpened just rightly. All the elements fall right into place.

Hi David, beautiful colour with very good exposure on this shot of yours of the early morning Grand Canal. The blue sky and the warm tones from the buildings are great. I like the perspective here with the canal narrowing down to the lit bridge at the back, and the light reflecting off the water on the right. You don't say how long the exposure was, but I see one lone streak of light on the left that must have taken a few seconds (from a boat?). Very well managed on your part, and excellent capture.

this is a superb work! The luminosity is really good and the effect of the light on the water pleases me a lot. Very good work!

Great night view. The light on the right offers a very nice reflection.
I wonder what is the white line on the left? Did a boat pass there while you took this shot with a long time of exposure?
