Two evening shots taken from the Ponte degli Scalzi looking towards the top end of the Grand Canal, and the Piazzale Roma where the bus station is located. In V1 the Stazione Santa Lucia (railway station) can be seen on the right hand edge. Ferrovia is one of the main stops on the Grand Canal for the vaporetto (waterbus), and these can been seen here alongside the waiting areas, which are like large floating bus shelters. V1 was taken around 8:30 p.m. and V2 about 10 minutes later, with the camera on my Gorillapod resting on the parapet of the bridge, using the self-timer to avoid any camera shake.

V1: 1/2 sec, F8, 24mm, ISO 100
V2: 1 sec, F8, 48mm, ISO 100
+ Gorillapod!
Looks a little better seen large if you have the time.

Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Elements 6, with some assistance from Topaz Adjust.

Two super shots, Trev. Both are excellent but if I was to choose a winner it would be V 2 b/o the quality of the light and colours, but it's a close run thing.

Great shots, Trev. I like the way V1 shows the busy nature of the canals that doesn't always come over in the tourist shots.
