Ok if i remember right we got 20 quid return tickets with Ryanair for a day trip to Venice at the end of 2007. Had 7 hours in Venice and just walked all over the place. As the light began to fade i could see the sky getting some nice colour but i just could not find a good composition. All at once this scene welcomed me as we crossed a bridge and the beauty really caught my eye.
At the time i had a Pentax dslr with a FA50mm 1.4 lens attached. The pic was taken handheld at 1/6 second with iso at 800 and aperture of f2.4.
It has been printed in both colour and also looks good in black/white if you add some contrast and several freinds have copies on their walls. Technically the white balance is a teeny bit off but other than that i was happy with what i got. Could have cropped out the bottom boat too but would square pic off a bit too much.
