I love, love, love the back alleys of Venice. Only always wish I could spend more time just wandering through the back alleys and canals. I love, love, love.... okay :)

Italy is awesome

Amazing. Simply beautiful.
I'm speechless.

I agree with you. I spent most of my time in Venice wondering if I had wandered into someone's dream. There are stories in sci fi and fantasy of cities in the sky, and woven through history are tales of a land that sunk below the waves.

It never quite seemed real to me that I walked through streets built upon the ocean, and that the idea of Atlantis, falling into the sea, is captured in Venice.

Love the way you captured the view down the canal. It's such a gorgeous city, it's one of my dream vacations if I ever had the chance. The detail here is delightful, especially the faces on the bridge and the muted colors.
Excellent job!

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D.(oibyrd's daily devs) feature :winner: ! congrats! :clap:

:heart: TODAYS THEME: Wall Worthy Prints! :heart:

ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure and also, to introduce the more popular artists to the new/overlooked deviants. I prefer to showcase ALL artwork that I love (and that includes popular artists with a fair amount of traffic to their work) in order to create a non-biased feature of the talent on dA. *PLZ DO KEEP IN MIND - some of the features are quite popular and obviously don't need extra help - however - I enjoy posting them because they inspire other artists. Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists . If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! Sandi xoxo

Oh man, did you go inside the Doge's Palace? The painted ballroom is absolutely and completely awe-striking! It's amazing how you caught the lighton the water and the staining on the sides of the palace.

being an extreme estimator of Venice and since I go to "photographic pilgrimage" regularly, I can't say this picture is really good. I think the colors are too "digital" and saturated, while I know perfectly well that Venice with that kind of weather has very soft and pastel colors that I think should always be preserved.

The title itself makes me think too..... since that bridge is called "Ponte dei sospiri". It is the only covered bridge in Venice: the building at right were the Prisons. Thus once the criminal was judged and convicted at left, he was escorted over that bridge to his destination and he gave "the last sigh" on the bridge.

I love Venice! The contrast of the colour is perfect, and the composition is fantastic.
ashleybaby Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2006
lovely picture ! i agree=) it's a wonderful place
kitchenbabe Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2006
This is beautiful...I had the pleasure of seeing Venice last spring and got to see the Bridge of Sighs on a gondola tour (my pics didn't turn out this nice, it was an old camera...)
I like the shot just as it thing I noticed about Venice....You can look at the same scene several times and always see something somehting new. You get the sense with that "blank space" that you're peeking around the corner into a bustling area. The levels of perspective give it so much dimension.

Great work!

Venice does have a singular atmosphere, and you captured it artfully! The light is just gorgeous, exactly like it is everywhere you go in Venice.

and this photo reminds of waterpainting. I like the colours, like on old postcards. and the idea of composition with the virtual framing in the foreground is great too :)
Thriftstore-Betrayal Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2005

arcanus-silva Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2005
I love how they're so many levels to this photo: the sculpture on the bridge, the bridge and buildings in the background, the boats, etc. It's very interesting. You don't notice it all at first glance. Very beautiful.
kyo83 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005

Nutsh3ll Featured By Owner May 28, 2005   Photographer

This is called "Ponte dei sospiri", in english: Bridge of sighs.

You think the whole frame should be filled with detail?
Dyer-Consequences Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2005
no, just needs like more of a focal point, it's leading you no where.
