On our recent 4 night trip, I tried to capture the surreal side of Venice. Enjoy the photo gallery: http://smu.gs/I5ebL1

Stunning! Thanks for posting them.
Thank you for sharing. What wonderful photographs. I will be visiting Venice this weekend. What an inspiration. I love the colour saturation of many of your photographs, have they been photoshopped or just tweaked using basic digital imaging adjustments? Whatever the case... great results!!!
Great photos!!! We plan to be there in mid July. Any decent but not too expensive hotel recomendations? Thanks...
Some of those are very good. We all think that our own efforts are the best, but a few of those are quite stunning.
Not sure I buy the 'we thought it only meant 'no flash' in the basilica' ;)
Great photos! I have enjoyed them and hope you have other travel photos to post. I was in Venice several years ago and hope to go back soon. At the time I was not very interested in photography. If you have a site where you share some of your skills I would love to learn more.
Your use of color and form reminds me of Red Desert (Il deserto rosso), a 1964 Italian film directed by Michelangelo Antonioni and starring Monica Vitti with Richard Harris.
Red Desert was Antonioni's first color film and was awarded the Golden Lion at the 25th Venice Film Festival in 1964.
Some photos of Florence have strayed in. Is Page 1 photo 4 in Venice? If so, where?
What software have you used? Are any or all of them HDR?
Oops, you're right, there's some Florence in there too!
And yes, I used post processing on some images to enhance the emotional impact or theme. I was not attempting photo journalism in this set so much as a surreal vision of beauty, much like the intent of Venice itself.
We stayed in the most convenient little apartment in Castello, overlooking canals and gondoliers, right next to Arco del Paradiso. It's called "Ponte del Paradiso apartment." (you can google it for booking sites.) It couldn't have been better located, near shops, groceries, pubs, 5 mins to Rialto or St Marks or Cannaregio or San Polo, but quiet at night, and on a historic, picturesque old calle (street.) Highly recommended! It was a newly renovated 3 BR/2 Ba place. The view was to die for!
Yes, the statue is in the S.S. Giovanni e Paolo church in Cannaregio!
