An obligatory shot if you're visiting Venice. I think our group was leaving before the soft, warm evening light so no chance for magic hour image here. I didn't have a fast lens with me anyway and wasn't carrying a tripod at the time. Too bad.

Some work in PS using transform to more or less get the buildings into proper perspective.

Certainly an iconic view- nicely seen and composed going around the bend.

A classic view, Mike! The old Venice buildings always look as though they are about to crumble into the canal, to me, especially with their foundations under water.......
