An activity in a side canal of Venice, always spectacular with all those colorful reflections. A multi colored boat happened to be parked in this canal with its oarsman preparing for his tour! The very colorful reflections of the surrounding Ventian architecture in the slightly rippled water add splendor to this presentation.

Hi Francis

Love the colour saturation & the reflections in this superb shot of a Venetian canal. The gondoliers add authenticity. Good sharpness & the grain adds an artistic effect. Tfs!

Hi Francis!
You've chooses very nice remote area to do this shot.
I like strong colours and contrast on it.
Very good work.
Best regards - Tom

Hello Francis

They do not get much better than this. Color, sharpness, POV. All aspects outstanding. This is by far one of the better images I have seen today........one of your best. Just sad to see the barred up windows everywhere.


Bonjour Francis Xavier,

Cette saturation au maximum donne une image impressionnante;
L'atmosphère vénitienne est palpable et j'aime beaucoup cela.
Piquantes réflections et détails artistiquement corrects.
Bien fait. TFS
Amicalement vôtre.


I like the colours produced in this shot and the composition gives us an interesting well balanced scene. Lovely reflections and I like how you have captured the canal disappearing around the corner giving a little bit of mystery. Lovely image enhanced by the square crop.


I like your canal better than the fake ones we have in Las Vegas. Nicely captured with good pov and dof with nice details. Good lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Francis,
A very colourful photo from Venice, one of my favourite places. I think bit more image on the top showing the buildings would have helped, but that is just a personal preference. Th ereflections in the water are really neat.

Hi Francis,
Beautiful colorful reflections in water and old architecture in Venise,
Nice square format and excellent Point of view ,
excellent PPwork in HDR with a good contrast and light,
Nice tone of colors too,
My compliments

Dear Francis

Love the explosion of colours and light in this capture. The effect of the ripples and reflections in the water contrast nicely with the roughened texture of the bricked walls, good POV. Well managed HDR!

Well done!

Kind regards,

beautiful and "dynamic" shot....colour are excellent...
I like it!


Hello Francis,a tight crop excluding the sky and yet your shot gives us so much to enjoy.
Lots of textures, colours and patterns.
The water is particularly eye catching and almost worthy of a shot of its' own.
The boat coming towards us just completes the scene for me.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Francis,
Brilliant colour and sharpness throughout the image with numerous points of interest.Good choice of frame.I like the manner in which the water reflecions have created multi tones.
