Sunrise in Venice from the Accademia bridge on Canal Grande

Sunrise in Venice from the Accademia bridge on Canal Grande.

A panorama of an iconic place in Venice: Canal Grande and the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute from the Accademia Bridge (Ponte dell’Accademia). The pale light of sunrise allowed me to give a painterly look to the frame, with a surreal sense of stillness. The absence of hard shadows, due to the soft light, and the mirror-like surface of the water amphasize the amazing details of the palaces which look onto the Canal Grande, as well as the shape of the dome of Santa Maria della Salute, on the background. This is a panorama made of 4 portrait-oriented long exposures taken with Lee ND and ND Grad filters.

Note that this photographed has been awarded with a Bronze Medal at the 2017 edition of EPSON International Pano Award, and with a Nominee at the 2018 edition of FAPA Fine Art Photography Awards

Iconic Burano – A glimpse on the island of a thousand colors

Iconic Burano – A glimpse on the island of a thousand colors.

Iconic Burano. A view of the colorful houses of Burano, taken from the Love Viewing Bridge in a sunny day of spring. The direction of this canal points to Venice, 45 minutes away by “vaporetto”. This is quite a rare photograph: despite this spot has been photographed a billion times, a well executed long exposure made with a tripod is a different matter; this because these “fondamenta” are always overcrowded and, most critical, the tiny wooden bridge shudders under the “heavy steps” of passing people, ruining the shot.
