That is a BEAUTIFUL image, Astrid!!! You did take some wonderful shots in Italy!
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth, for some reason the pictures turned out great. I do think cleaning the sensor did make a big difference too.

Quelle magnifique photo !
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Martine, we had a wonderful evening for taking pictures.
Oh, yes! That one evening we went up and down the Grand Canal was such a wonderful part of our trip. I love this almost-silhouette of the gondolier and his boat!
Picturit: We had the most beautiful evening to take all those pictures and it was wonderful to see all the lights being switched on. A night to remember for sure.. Thank you, Ginnie.
It is a busy canal Astrid, good to see it.
Picturit: This is were all the action is, night and day. And this was a fabulous night to be here.

A very atmospheric picture for Gondola Friday Astrid. This is one of your very best
Picturit: Thank you so much, Chris for these kind words. I totally enjoyed Venice, the buildings, the canals and last but not least, the many many boatrides we took. I love seeing things from the water.
What a fine romantic scene Lady P
Picturit: Thank you, Bill. Venice and gondolas, they go together and it is such a wonderful sight to see them moving all over.

It is a gorgeous scene, Astrid!
Picturit: Thank you, Ray. One of those magic evenings.
My reply to Ginnie goes to you too. Love the evening light here with the streetlights beginning their job.
Picturit: I went to Ginnie to see what you wrote. Some people take it for granted what they see 'all day' but for us it is 'magic' and a true treat to see it. Like Venice and beached boats... I never get tired of that.
Thank you, Mary, have a great day.
i see you got the most out of the low lighting situation, Astrid. a wonderful scene and slightly cool temperatures here.
Picturit: We started at the right time I think, it was fast going from dusk to dark. We had a fabulous time in Venice.
a gondola in the blue hour of Venice... what more could we ask for Astrid... beautiful....petersmile
Picturit: Nothing else, we are happy people with just a little... Thank you, Peter.
The gondola really makes this photo... well and the light shimmers.
Picturit: This is so iconic to Venice. We totally enjoyed our time here.
And a VERY beautiful boat Friday! What a perfect time of evening. And the signature!! LOVE!
Picturit: Thank you, Robin, it was a fabulous night for taking the waterbus and make the ride on the Grand Canal.
