Photography Contest Second Place
Description: Venice Italy
I was attracted by the colors of this scene created by the twilight skies and the canal lights. I was standing on a bridge above this canal, placed my camera on the tripod, framed the image I wanted, and then I waited for a gondola to pass the bridge and appear on the lower part of the frame. I used a slow shutter speed and narrow aperture to create the motion affect and the deep depth of field. Actually, I took a couple of shots from that points with slightly different shutter speeds and chose the one which gave the effect I was looking for – slightly blurred so it will resemble a painting.
