The Gondoliers

By TrevBatWCC    
Just a short distance north of the Rialto bridge as I was walking alongside the Grand Canal, close to the fish and vegetable markets, I spotted these two gondoliers stood chatting, so grabbed a couple of quick candids. Think I've been spotted in the version! Wink

Many thanks to Isabel (Chinga), Colleen, Lillian and Dave (HobbitDave) for their User Awards on my previous upload Rialto , and also again to Dave (HobbitDave) for his User Award on my earlier upload of Louise , most appreciated Smile

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging Smile

Good bit of local interest here, Trev, and as you say you are getting a glance from one of the gondoliers and from his face it's difficult to know what he is thinking.

The guy in the version doesn't look too amused Trev. Two great looking shots here.

Love the style - that striped jumper would look good under my new linen dress!

I love the contrast between the two excellent captures, Trev.
As well as the gondolier that spotted you, I love the expression of the other chap - looks like he's about to burst into song.

Two excellent images Trev. What a wonderful place to go.
Well captured Trev, the gondoliers and the ubiquitous mobile phone, great processing too.

Up to your excellent processing too.

Very good candids Trev. If I remember rightly it was quite expensive to take a trip, but if you go to Venice it's a 'must do.' Grin
