    An excellent take on that iconic location.

    Thanks all, glad you liked it. The situation between a shot and a silhouette is what I saw in reality and tried to show. A bit of both and not exactly either one. For me that was the magic of the moment

    fantastic lighting and composition ... I like the shadow look here to help the viewer focus on the shapes and colors versus detail

    Venetian sunset indeed. Just lovely. Nothing to say about it technically. It just spoke to me emotionally.

    Classic scene, dramatic silhouettes, great color. Could be a little sharper. Might consider cropping some of the empty foreground.

    Lovely image and nicely composed. However, because there's too much light to make it work as a silhouette - much of the important details are lost in darkness.

    Beautiful capture! The background and foreground balance each other.

    An iconic Venetian shot, but with a bit extra in the lighting and composition. I like it.

    Nice silhouettes in the sunset. In my favorites.

    This is beautifully composed, with that wonderful leading line of boats heading past the domed buildings into shore. It's a bit on the murky side, but perhaps that is the effect you wanted to achieve.

    Picture postcard perfect. I love the composition and the mood. I wonder if you could have adjusted the curves to illuminate the San Marco structure a bit more?

    Lovely image. Love the contrast of the boats against the water and the contextual building in the distance. Maybe a little up on the white point? looks a little low key, but maybe that is what you were going for. In my TT.

    Lovely composition. I would have liked a fraction more exposure on the boats and buildings. In my tt.

    great composition and just enough light for detail in the buildings...

    Lovely sky color and interesting silhouettes of buildings. I think the composition would be improved by cropping from the bottom to a little below the nearest boat.
