A most beautiful image, I tend not to use flash and use the light available and you've captured this beautifully.

Such a wonderful place and a beautiful, serene image Lillian. Early morning definitely the best time to see Venice. I like the inclusion of the post and bird in the lower part of the composition.

Early morning calm and tranquility, Lillian. Flash wouldn't be of much use on this shot anyway, and the 5d3 will cope with 800 Iso no problems Smile

I didn't comment about the flash as thought most people would of known that I had forgotten to take
with me for the 'trip' my flash and just did not bother to take the tripod
no definitely did not need a flash for sunrises
