In the following post I am going to show you some of the pictures I took in Venice this spring. It’s a beautiful and unique city with things to photograph every few meters. I came home with loads photos and the decision which ones I wanted to upload was very hard. The following pictures are a selection of the best ones. Hope you’ll enjoy.
I took this shot from one of the boats as we shipped accross the Canal Grande. It was taken with the 9-18mm lens. I am very happy with the final result since that day was very cloudy with haveing almost no structure in the sky. Fortunately I was able to recover some of the contrast in the clouds which adds definition to the sky.
This shot, as the first photo, was taken from a boat. The boats were great for taking pictures because of the unique views you got of the city. With this shot I like especially the open view and the traffic you see on the Canal.
This shot was taken in Murano. It is one of the smaller islands around Venice and famous for its glass works. It is a nice island and not as crowded as Venice.
I took this shot from the Rialto Bridge at night. The bridge was so crowded with photographers all equipped with their tripods. That time I was very happy to have my OM-D with me with the 5-axis Image Stabilization system. It worked flawlessly and helped me to get this shot without the use of a tripod.
This was just a fast street capture. Anja and me came across an alley where this woman walked through. The sun shining bright creating this nice high contrast image with strong shadows and light. I really like this shot.
