Taken on my vacation in Italy this month...in Venice obviously. This is my first free study entry. I took full advantage of the extra height in the expert editing, but actual editing is basic.

Critique Club feedback:

This is a nice capture, if a bit static for a Free Study entry.

While there is no real excitement here to draw the eye, I do like all the textures and patterns and the overall clarity of the scene. Having been to Venice I realize that it isn't always possible to find different angles to shoot from, but assuming it was possible, a different point of view to give more emphasis to the boat and its reflection might make this shot pop.

Good work and I hope you enjoyed Venice! My fav city in the world.

Nice tall shot but nothing to realy grab the eye, the boat is a bit dark imo. Good luck

I like the verticalness of this photo. Lots of details to look at with the buildings.

Understated. I like the long narrow view of this.

Your title made me smile. I like the natural lighting and the boat keeps your image from being boring. It's a good focal point and I like how the green makes a good contrast against the buildings.
