Walking back to our hotel - little bar down the side of a canal - this sums up Venice for me

Great 'street scene', albeit that its a canal!

Good mono shot. I visited there many years ago and your right, this images does capture the mood of the place. I must go again now that I have got a decent camera. Tracey

It's just a pity there's some burn out in the highlights, but it's good to see the detail in the darker areas. If you could, it would have been worth shooting a little earlier to get more shadow detail and/or less burnout.
However, those are small points, as you've captured the atmosphere very nicely here, and the mono works very well, adding more mood than if it were purely colour.

Thanks for the comments folks. Some good feedback there. I've now played with the contrast just a touch and concluded that I like the deep shadows more than the details which I could extract from them. It WAS very late when I took the shot - handheld at f4 and 1/2 second with an IS lens. I think another time I'll take a film camera to get a slightly wider dynamic range. Maybe!
