Santa Maria della Salute

Today’s photo is from Venice.  This is the Santa Maria della Salute; it’s at the end of the Grand Canal.  We passed by it in our vaporetto on our way to the hotel.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL35mm, 1/4000, f/4.0, ISO 100

Today’s photo is a two-for since I couldn’t decide on which treatment I liked better.  I took a similar photo to this on my previous trip to Venice, that was at night with a tripod and long exposure.  This time I passed this area in the day with the fisheye adapter on and wanted another take on it.  At the bottom of the picture you can probably see there are steps.  Walking up to take this picture, the ground was wet and as I was getting close to the water’s edge I told myself to be careful and not slip.  I didn’t slip, but I was very close to going in.

I liked how the picture turned out and I really like the colors in the original, but when playing around in Perfect Effects 4 I couldn’t get past the treatment in the second version.  I had to keep and share both.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL16mm w/VCLF1, 1/500, f/5.6, ISO 100.
