Golden Host (Lion Of San Marco Detail On Gondola Ferro), Venice

Newer Older

Another from my quick December trip to Venice. It's probably an inferior shot to the one posted previously (in comments below), but I keep coming back to it. Therefore, I thought I'd post it too and to hell with the law about posting excessive bokeh to Flickr.

It's taken looking up towards the Rialto bridge at golden hour, with a strident winter sun lighting up the bobbing Gondola blades - individually "ferro", so I guess "ferri" in a group?

Hope everyone is having a fantastic week. Looking forward to the 100 Strangers Project London meet up this weekend - hope to see some of you there!

    I like the close up. Great abstrast feel; almost presents as an axe. The detail and light are fantastic.

    Fantastic DoF in the top shot, I think it's the better of the two. I really like the light and detail on the gondola blade.

    This is great. Not sure what the rule is about bokeh, I thought there was a rule about 'not' using too much :-)
    See you at the meetup, hope the weather is kind to us!

    In terms of composition, there is so much going on here. Fantastic golden light in both the shiny foreground and the bokeh in the background.

    Fab details, PoV and focus. Both are great shots, but the second one really screams Venezia to us. :)
