Hello Francis,

Excellent POV, nice frmae and a very beautiful shot with perfect light, contrast and sharpness!
Congratulations and TFS

Yes Francis, I believe you are a Venice kind of guy. You fit in well there with all the wonderful art. It's an architectural wonder IMO. I would buy this post card. :) I love the DOF with full clarity of the buildings!


Hi Francis,

You have shown Venice from a wonderful angle, with such great warm colors of the buildings with 'live' boat tour!
The sharpness and POV are perfect with great clarity in the picture. Wonderful use of the sunlight, is maintained in this lovely work.
Very well seen!

best regards,

HGello Francis Xavier,
Beautiful shot of Venice architecture, the colours and detail is so vivid it is fantastic, I like the overcast sky turning the water dark also and the iluminated buildings are a treat. Best regards Siegfried

Nice square format to catch this "vaporetto". Good soft light of the venitian atmosphere.
Best regards

Hi Francis
It's so lovely landscaping photo of Venice.
The lighting, colours, sharpness are all good.
I love Venice too. We only visited Venice once. It was on the 31 of October some years ago. The next day was a big film festival though It was so crowded

dear Francis Xavier,
even this modern boat fits old houses of Venice,
the combination of green water and old graceful houses, maybe has magic power that makes all objects beautiful, and all feeling sensitive too,
wonderful view picture, thank you,
