[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was a damp and overcast day in Venice, but during the evening, the sky started to break and let a glimps of the setting sun through to drown the city in a rich orange light. Unfortunately, the sun didn't try hard enough and was soon hiding from us again. But during that short period I took this silhouette of Santa Maria del Salute from the waterside at San Marco looking to the west.
Just some cropping of the image in PP here and a little increase in colour saturation to emphasise the orange glow from the sun.

Hi Dai,
Splendid sunset on Santa Maria del Salute. I like the silhouette structure of such architecture.
Very dramatic sky with the glaring sphere nicely visible.
Well done for this wonderful piece of art.
My best Festive wishes.

Hi Dai
A perfect silhouette effect with this brown sunset
The details of architectures in shadows are superb
How about a closer aperture to reach better details on clouds?
