Life on the Rialto

By Kaxxie
This is my last image of Venetian Carnival costumes. The outer sections of the Rialto were extremely busy so we went via the middle section. That was lucky as we were able to admire this lovely couple taking their lunchtime stroll. They were obligingly pausing and smiling for anyone who wanted to photograph them. Initially I would have preferred no one else in the shot but now I feel that would have been too contrived. I like the fact that there are locals carrying on with their daily life, tourists wandering around and this couple, flamboyantly dressed, strolling round as if they’re going to a ball.

Thank you everyone for my votes and comments for yesterday’s image. They are gratefully received. Thanks also to Alfie_P and Robert51 for your mods.

Take care everyone and stay safe.

Thanks Tony. The weather, for the first three days, was amazing. It really brought out the colours of the buildings especially early evening in St. Mark’s Square. We actually have a touch of sun here today before the constant forecast of rain every day next week! 🤦🏼‍♀️

Take care

The woman off to one side without costume but posed for the camera anyhow, reminds me of something Mr Bean would do. I played a bit with it; got rid of her and the elbow but now there's the woman in the middle - lol. Dora

Thanks for your mod Dora. I quite like the woman with the red bag. I don’t like the handbag on the bottom left though. If the handbag was edited out the woman with the red bag would be legless! I haven’t got to grips with ‘healing’ as it’s called on Snapseed! 🤣🤣🤣

Blurring the background looks good Ivor. Now that’s a handy idea for a lot of my images. I wonder if I can do that on Snapseed. 🤔

Love how the blue dressed woman looks like she is floating in Ivor’s mod . I agree with you the original
is appealing for the depiction of life going on as usual during the festival.
Nice one Katie
Cheers Walt
