A view of 2 halves

I am going to start with saying this is one of the hardest galleries I have put together. Why? Because there are so many scenes that I liked. This collections of shots is from a weekend break in late March 2014.

On that trip I took 642 shots over the 3 days that we were their (as always about 5 of the same subject!). So this meant limiting myself to the 40, self-imposed, limit I have created myself as challenging. I obviously want to include the iconic locations, and then a few more that display the feel of the place.

So this will be one of two galleries. This one will focus on Venice, and the other on the islands of Murano & Burano.

And now the gallery

Technical details

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

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.

Have You?

Visited Venice? Or is it still on your bucket list? We want to hear your experiences - was it as good as you thought?

Inspired to visit Venice?

We loved it.

We found some of the 'myths' for this place just did not stack up.

Prices were the same as other Italian cities we had visited. We saw the crowds and we also found quiet little plazas. The canals & waterways did not smell - late March just seemed about right for us.

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