It’s rare that I post an image straight out of camera, and this is no exception – but it is pretty darn close to it. I straightened the building on the left a little as it looked odd at the natural angle it was at, and then I changed switched to black and white, amended the highlights and shadows a tad, and aid a little cropping. That’s it though.
This was such an easy shot to process, and a great scene to stumble upon.
It was my last day in Venice and I awoke to find the place shrouded in mist. After shooting though a sunrise where I could see no sun, I returned to my hotel for breakfast and to check out, and then wandered around taking a few more images. Before I knew it, the mist – which had cleared up before I went for food – had returned and I could see if here and there as I walked around. Crossing over a bridge on a particular canal I turned to my left and saw this bridge with the church and awesome mist moving around as you see in this image. So I sat on the wall of the bridge for about 10 minutes taking photos of various people as they crossed the bridge. This was my favourite.
