Venice Gallery – the Islands

A small bus ride away

Being Venice it’s of course a water bus. Those who have arrived here via my first Venice gallery will know I had to whittle my complete Venice selection down, and this collection is based on the Islands of Murano & Burano. We also stopped at the Cimitero di San Michele en-route, but I respected the wishes of the cemetery and did not take any photo’s while we were there.

This selection of shots is from a weekend break in late March 2014.


And now the gallery

The technical bits

For this mini break I kept things light, sticking to my EF24-105mm f/4L series lens on my Canon EOS-1Ds MarkIII.

Images captured as Raw and imported into Adobe’s Lightroom. The images are then processed in Adobe Photoshop through a selection of techniques, predominantly Google’s Nik collection of filters to create a look that echoes the experience.

Inspired?

We loved Venice and it’s Islands.

We also learnt that Venice has given the English language words such as Arsenal, Lido & Ghetto to name but a few.

What more can you ask for style, romance, culture & knowledge.

For our weekend break we stayed at Al Ponte Antico. A wonderful hotel, in a fantastic location.
