Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute

By TrevBatWCC    
Santa Maria della Salute, commonly known simply as the Salute, is a Roman Catholic church and minor Basilica of Baroque architecture, dating back to 1681. It's located at Punta della Dogana in the Dorsoduro sestiere of the city of Venice. Taken looking out across the bottom end of the Grand Canal, by the corner of the famous Harry's Bar.
The version is a slightly wider view taken from the same spot.

A fine pair of images of this Basilica, Trev.
Thoughtfully and well composed to make the most of the gondola 'parking' posts.

Nice use of the verticals.
It's probably a nice job in summer, not sure that I'd want to be steering a gondola at this time of year!

I like your compositions in both images, Trev, and the rows of boats. The seagull atop the post is a great addition.

Two excellent shots, Trev, and I have to say I cannot differentiate between them as to which I like the better.
I feel I am almost there myself looking out over the canal.
Love the composition in the lead Trev, brings back happy memories.
