Il campanile di San Marco
Made by Cristina 63
Il campanile di San Marco è uno dei simboli della città di Venezia. I veneziani lo chiamano affettuosamente El paròn de casa (Il padrone di casa). Alto 98,6 metri è uno dei campanili più alti d'Italia. Si erge, isolato, in un angolo di piazza San Marco di fronte alla basilica. Di forma semplice, si compone di una canna di mattoni, scanalata, avente un lato di 12 metri e alta circa 50 metri, sopra la quale si trova la cella campanaria, ad archi. La cella campanaria è a sua volta sormontata da un dado, sulle cui facce sono raffigurati alternativamente due leoni andanti e le figure femminili di Venezia (la Giustizia). Il tutto è completato dalla cuspide, di forma piramidale, sulla cui sommità, montata su una piattaforma rotante per funzionare come segnavento, è posta la statua dorata dell'arcangelo Gabriele. La base della costruzione è impreziosita, dal lato rivolto verso la basilica, dalla Loggetta del Sansovino. St Mark's Campanile (Campanile di San Marco in Italian) is the bell tower of St Mark's Basilica in Venice, Italy, located in the square (piazza) of the same name. It is one of the most recognizable symbols of the city. The tower is 98.6 metres (323 ft) tall, and stands alone in a corner of St Mark's Square, near the front of the basilica. It has a simple form, the bulk of which is a plain brick square shaft, 12 metres (39 ft) wide on each side and 50 metres (160 ft) tall, above which is the arched belfry, housing five bells. The belfry is topped by a cube, alternate faces of which show walking lions and the female representation of Venice (la Giustizia: Justice). The tower is capped by a pyramidal spire, at the top of which sits a golden weathervane in the form of the archangel Gabriel. The campanile reached its present form in 1514. As it stands today, however, the tower is a reconstruction, completed in 1912 after the collapse of 1902.
San Giorgio Maggiore
Made by LusoFox
San Giorgio Maggiore Venice, Italy From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: San Giorgio Maggiore is one of the islands of Venice, lying east of the Giudecca and south of the main island group. The isle is surrounded by Canale della Grazia, Canale della Giudecca, Saint Mark Basin, Canale di San Marco and the southern lagoon. It forms part of the San Marco sestiere. The island was probably occupied in the Roman period; after the foundation of Venice it was called Insula Memmia after the Memmo family who owned it. By 829 it had a church consecrated to St George; thus it was designated as San Giorgio Maggiore to be distinguished from San Giorgio in Alga. The Benedictine Monastery of San Giorgio was established in 982, when the doge Tribuno Memmo donated the whole island to a monk, Giovanni Morosini. The monks drained the island's marshes next to the church to get the ground for building. San Giorgio is now best known for the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore, designed by Palladio and begun in 1566. In the early nineteenth century, after the Republic fall, the monastery was almost suppressed and the island became a free port with a new harbour built in 1812. It became the home of Venice's artillery. It is now the headquarters of the Cini Foundation arts centre, known for its library and is also home to the Teatro Verde open-air theatre. 20090306_400D_IMG_8124_Veneza
Winged Lion & St Theodore

Late one afternoon after a day spent wandering the fascinating labyrinth that is Venice, we came out onto St. Mark's Square to be greated with this sight. This was a single raw file that was tone mapped in Photomatix Pro to bring out more detail and colour in the darker areas and make it overall richer in colour with getting too carried away. A hopefully subtle vignetting effect was done by: a.add a curves adjustment layer b. dragging the line to the right so it’s parallel to the original one. c. Isolating the overall darkening by inverting the resulting mask then painting with a white brush to add in the vignette. I duplicated the main layer and applied a Watercolour filter and then used a very large soft eraser to erase most of it in the center, leaving a subtle effect around the perimeter. I did this, along with the vignetting as a way for the eye to be drawn into the middle of the picture. I then sharpened by duplicate the layer, then under Filter choosing Other, then High Pass. I then move the slider so you just see what you want to sharpen. I then use a blend mode of Overlay. Hopefully I didn't get too carried away. I figure that if I don't try these things, I won't learn. Any constructive suggestions are encouraged. :-)
St. Mark's basilica , Venice
Made by STEHOUWER AND RECIO
Venice St. Mark's basilica General information In 828 the mortal remains of St. Mark the Evangelist were brought to Venice from Alexandria in Egypt. On this occasion it was decided to build a church worthy of containing such a precious relic. Most of the grandiose basilica was built, bit by bit, between the 11th and 15th centuries. The result is a harmonious blend of Byzantine gold, Gothic spires, Romanesque round arches and Islamic domes, bearing witness to the international and eclectic vocation of Venice. Photographers impressions A beautiful basilica, I couldn't take my eyes off it. But comparable with the overload of highlights like in the Palace of Versailles. We didn't go in, because there was a large queue, and time was limited. I've been processing a lot of time on this picture, and got different results. After some thinking, I've decided this one was the best I got from this famous building. St. Mark's basilica is located on the Piazza San Marco in Venice. Have a nice weekend my friends!

This photo shows the West South West view over St Mark's Square. What you can't see in this image is that between most of the houses in the distance there is a complex mesh of canals that serve as roads in this exotic island.

st Mark's cathedral from St Mark's Campanile
Made by Paul Cowell
The Patriarchal Cathedral Basilica of Saint Mark (officially known in Italian as the Basilica Cattedrale Patriachale di San Marco and commonly known as Saint Mark's Basilica) is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Venice. It is the most famous of the city's churches and one of the best known examples of Byzantine architecture. It lies on Piazza San Marco (in the San Marco sestiere or district) adjacent and connected to the Doge's Palace. Originally it was the chapel of the Venetian rulers, and not the city's cathedral. Since 1807 it has been the seat of the Patriarch of Venice, archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Venice. For its opulent design, gilded Byzantine mosaics, and its status as a symbol of Venetian wealth and power, from the 11th century on the building was known by the nickname Chiesa d'Oro (Church of gold).

This is a panorama constructed from 18 photos with a free program called Autostitch. I've always created my panoramas manually in the past but this software is so good I don't think I'll be doing much of that from now on. In the full size version of this you can see the control tower at the Marco Polo airport accross the water. You can see ships docked at the the cruise ship terminal on the far left of the frame, and count the stripes on the Morano lighthouse up in the right hand edge of the shot.

Gondolas are particularly well suited to the conditions of the Venetian Lagoon. Therefore, gondolas have been for centuries gondolas the chief means of transportation and most common watercraft within Venice. Today, however, apart from their use in special rowing races (regattas), their almost exclusively used for tourist purposes. It is estimated that there were eight to ten thousand gondolas in Venice during the 17th and 18th century. There are just over four hundred in active service today.
M.V. Octopus from Campanile San Marco
Made by Jonathan ☂ James
Taken from the bell chamber of the San Marco Campanile, the Octopus looks huge compared to the other yachts moored along the Riva Ca' di Dio. We laughed when the friend I was with joked about how sick the owners/occupants of the smaller yachts must have felt when sitting on the palatial sundecks of their smart yacht sipping a cold G&T as they surveyed the admiring passers-by, only to be overshadowed by Octopus docking next to them.

So I was going thru some folders on my computer and I came across this shot from a while ago. In fact I have a bunch of stuff that I've never gotten around to scanning in and I also have probably like 20 rolls of film from my Holga that I've yet to go get processed. Some of the rolls have been sitting on my shelf for over a year. I forget what's even on them, maybe it's time to go get them developed.
