I've been wanting to participate in LE's B/W Challenge, though time has prevented me from doing so. This is a view of the Grand Canal in Venice. I was on a boat, rocking and swaying, though I managed to snap a few shots. Thank you for looking and leaving a comment.

Wow this is one amazing capture and in B&W it as a old time look to it and the presentation plus detail is outstanding .Plus there lots for the eye to feast upon in this fabulous looking scene and I love the boat with the waves at the back of it too.This would be a winner I think for the B&W contest too.

Black and white makes it timeless, Gibbs.
Your first entry is a winner.

Looks like the water might have been a little rough, but you were able to get off a very nice shot. Go ahead and enter it. It's a winner!

This is a superb image Doug.
Venice used to be on my bucket list - bucket has a bit of a leak but would still love to see it. This is the next best thing :)

A very welcome addition to the BWC. Thank you !

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Lovely shot Doug - can't tell you were swaying but being on a boat is the best way to be out there and shoot photos. Good luck in the b & W challenge.
