San Giorgio Maggiore

By TrevBatWCC    
After a very sunny couple of days at Christmas, Boxing Day was rather grey and damp, but at least it was rain-free and stayed fine all day for our trip out to Venice. The coach parked up at Tronchetto, the only area of Venice island where traffic can reach, and a boat brought us round the island to this spot, Riva degli Schiavoni, which runs along the bottom end of Piazza San Marco.
Just a bog-standard shot really, looking across to the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, with a touch of Diffuse Glow in PS chucked in to enhance the weather conditions.

Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging Smile

Nothing "bog standard" about it. There's lots to look at in this image. Feeling really sorry for the poor seagull all hunched up against the weather.

Beautiful image, the composition and balance is great, it almost looks like a Canaletto painting , love that seagull clinging on.

A fine image here Trev, so much to see, and a rather cold-looking seagull too Wink. Excellent image.

Maybe one of the most photographed scenes, not many as good as this though Trev.
Perfectly composed and captured Trev.

A nice image to look at Trev, showing the mood of winter. I like looking through the mooring posts to the island beyond. Pam

Do they position those gondolas like that, so photogenically, or is it just by chance that they sit like this, I wonder. Still, it looks good, Trev, and the background is good, and slightly subdued, so the boats become more prominent. It may be a popular place for a picture, but this is certainly not bog-standard.
