Photographer's Note

February in Venice. I got up early and was in St Mark's Square before 6pm, well before dawn. Down on Riva degli Schiavoni by the basin I set up my tripod and knocked off a few shots across to Chiesa San Giorgio Maggiore. But I wasn't quite alone: a group of German photographers was already there. You really do have to be up early to beat the Germans! The 8 second shutter speed has allowed the gondolas in the foreground to blur as they were bobbing around on the slight swell, and bumping into and moving the mooring posts, which is why they too aren't sharp.

14.11.11: Lisa has suggested a tungsten white balance for this image, so I've duly obliged in a Workshop, which you may wish to look at to compare approaches.
