When somebody mentions Venice, what is the first thing that you think of? Most likely you’re picturing the canals flowing through the city, the rich architecture, and the gondolas right? Well, that’s how any traveler would think of the place. When photographer Michael Sidofsky was around Venice, he captured the following image which really showcases the essence of this beautiful city. If you don’t look close enough, you could even mistake it for a painting:
Sidofsky took this image from the Rialto bridge with his NIkon D750 and the 70-200 f/2.8 lens.
The beautiful combination of light and shadows is what makes this image appear so magical. The golden light has set the perfect mood to this image. The appearance is so “soft and cozy” that it feels as if an artist has delicately and skillfully painted the beautiful buildings.
The gondola in the foreground is yet another point of attraction in this image. Including it in the frame has added a sense of relevance to the image. And if you look carefully, you can anticipate that Sidofsky must have waited patiently for the gondolier to pass across the building’s reflection on the water. This has created more of a silhouette and emphasized the subject. This is indeed a very well-composed image by the photographer.
