Thank you, Will. I am thrilled that you like my photos of Venice. Italy is such a beautiful place. A few years ago, I visited Rome and Florence. However, I did not have too many good shots.I showed your Italy pictures to my friend last night. I was explaining to her that when I was in Florence and Venice, I was a total novice with photography (I had under a week's experience) and my shots show it. I ended up with a handful of great shots and a bunch of junk.
So I showed her you photos because I wanted her to know how Italy looks through great shots.
I showed her a picture of this photo's subject, but I was more to the east, and it was a terrible shot. but this one you posted is phenomenal.
