A different POV to capture the famous Rialto Bridge in Venice. I included the original prow of the Gondola and the famous Bridge with all the attractive striped towing poles in their original construction. The green water of the Lagoon is clearly seen dominating the Grand Canal.

Hi Francis.

An appealing position adopted here to take in as much as you have within the frame. These poles certainly are an Italian icon.

Hi Francis

The colourful striped barber style pole anchors the shot well. Good sharpness and saturation. Excellent repetition of the the diagonal prow of the gondola makes a superb lead in line. Tfs!

Bonjour Francis
Great POV so we have the bridge and the prow of the gondola..
Super sharp,with beautiful colors,and lots of details.
also like the details inside the gondola....TFS
beautiful picture....Regards,Robert

Hellow Francis,
Clever low angle with good depth throughout.The green and blue striped poles really stick out nicely and plenty of tourists or locals on the bridge.

Was this taken at the Venice Resort & Casino in Las Vegas? I like real Venice better than the fake one we have in Vegas. Good lighting and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Francis, you seem to have managed to include all the distinctive icons of Venice into one shot!It is certainly a clever composition.
Full of interest with lovely shapes and bright colours.
The 'portrait' presentation is perfect and a simple and effective frame.
Tfs, regards Jean.
