Sparkling in Venice

By Lillian  
Every jewel sparkling in the morning sunshine

the sunshine so early made it difficult to photograph especially as
I had forgotten to take my flash for the portrait images
so just had to work harder...and take more images to make sure I got at least one!!
Hope that you like this one

Thank you all for your good wishes again getting there, and moving moveGrin
Have a photo session on determined!!

Thank you Mike and Colleen for your User Awards on yesterday's photo 'Shimmering'

Rich and opulent. You make the compositions look so good but I guess it was more like a rugby scrum at times.

a great use of the light you had

A highly detailed image and costume Lillian.

It's the lady with the mirror again. Now we can see her full costume, so rich and plush, and that fan is beautiful too. Good job she didn't hold the mirror vertically otherwise we'd have seen you taking the pictureTongue!
