Gondola

A lone gondola at the Grand Canal. Venezia, Italia. Cross Processed. I know the composition is tilted and its intentional. It might not work for everyone but it does for me. I lined up the horizon here instead of the rows like I usually do.

    Very nice and interesting processing.

  • Jasper on 22.06.2010 @ 13:25

    Great processing indeed! Digging the compo too, although it looks a bit tilted to the right?

  • Jasper on 22.06.2010 @ 13:27

    BTW, I am looking for enthusiastic photographers for my new photo platform (currently in private beta). Interested?

    This is fucking sexy - it's like being in a James bond movie with an S-curve!

  • Otto K. on 22.06.2010 @ 14:46

    really like your processing, such cool tones.

    Excellent mood and view.

  • Ben on 22.06.2010 @ 17:57

    Excellent shot, totally dig the curvy dynamic in this one.

  • Eugene on 22.06.2010 @ 20:50

    Awesome cross-processing. And I totally get the tilting here--it works!

    LOL at Justin's comment...

    A beautiful capture. I especially like those striped poles on the left.

    I love the colors ! Another great picture of Venice !

  • joshi daniel on 23.06.2010 @ 08:01

    excellent framing with cool colors!

  • Nestor Antonio on 23.06.2010 @ 08:09

    The composition is great, as well the cross processing, the gondola is very well placed with in the frame, perhaps should be a little higher, but it doesn't affect the image at all. Great work man.

  • george@minimalistics on 23.06.2010 @ 15:29

    It definitely has a cross-process feel that works well with cloudy - possibly cold - day. I guess tilting Venice to one side is one answer to flooding!

  • Céline on 24.06.2010 @ 02:16

    Wonderful cross-processing ! It works very well in this beautiful shot !

  • rhys on 24.06.2010 @ 03:29

    cross-processing doesnt always work- but it does here! It has truly lifted the colours, nice one

  • PhotoGeek on 24.06.2010 @ 08:47

    Great coloring here. As for the composition, it almost feels as if the world is sliding off the frame to the right. Nice job.

  • claude on 24.06.2010 @ 08:59

    Nicely composed and your processing is great, very nice picture!

  • Klaus on 24.06.2010 @ 10:57

    great POV also like the green water.

  • grapf on 24.06.2010 @ 13:06

    the cyan again...! :-)

  • Wild Mustang Photography on 24.06.2010 @ 19:36

    Beautiful composition and processing! Love the details and colors! I feel like I am there!

  • Kerry on 25.06.2010 @ 06:27

    Oh! it's very beautiful, I like it :)

  • jelb on 25.06.2010 @ 11:34

    Bonsoir,
    Nice color effect..A beautiful composition..Bravo!

  • Michelle on 25.06.2010 @ 11:39

    I like the curve...it looks kind of 60's to me with the cross processing.

  • Mark Johnson on 27.06.2010 @ 08:38

    Beautiful; I like how both people have their eyes on the destination, and the deep clear blue of the water.

  • crash on 28.06.2010 @ 07:16

    i like the tilt ... looks like they're sliding off the page ...

  • rian on 28.06.2010 @ 13:52

    that toning works well for this one.. i think lining up the horizon was the right thing to do for this one.. :)

  • Arjan - PlasticDaisy on 30.06.2010 @ 13:40

    can't get enough of this city! Great shot!

  • SD (Aspherical) on 30.06.2010 @ 21:16

    The cross processing works very well with the subject, the colors enhance the historic feel.

  • Eulogio on 01.07.2010 @ 13:46

  • singapore architecture photogr on 04.01.2011 @ 01:15
