Your new PowerShot has served you well here, Lillian.......not easy subjects with the shading under the archways and the much brighter facades outside.
I like the way you have used these arches for framing the scene.......you have such a keen eye compositionally and many could learn a thing or two by viewing your work.
I like both almost equally but possibly V 1 just pips it for me, as the wet joins between the flagstones carry the light right into the f/g.
Lovely work as ever and I look forward to so many more.

good work with the wee powershot good results on Both Lillian i also find that my small Sony takes excellent pics as well and they are superb for macro shots ...i digress, both good, V1 does it for me using the arch as the frame looking out to candy stick mooring poles and the colours

Happy new week

Excellent use of the available frames Lillian. Classic canal and bridge in v1 but it's the colours and textures of v2 that I like best. It also looks more balanced to me with lots of interest therein. Two good spots and captures.

And there I was thinking you were having fabulous weather! But perhaps you wouldn't have captured these two lovely little corners of Venice if the sun had been blazing away. V2 for me.

Lovely images, making such good use of the arches as frames. V1 gets my vote this morning. No snow as yet but so windy and grey.

These ''compact'' cameras have come on leaps and bounds over the years I reckon Lillian.

Good ones.

Rain, snow and wind - didn't see any mention of the hot chocolate and 2 giant profiterols we each had to reward ourselves for going out that afternoon Tongue. My one similar to your V1 is quite dark, and never noticed this scene in V2. 2 Very good shots. Moira
