    I like the first one better than the second. The second one, with teh blown out sky, I find very distractring, and the building on the first is underexposed and kind of ruins the shot. The first one is framed a little better. I especially like the buildings in the background. A pity there was that gargoyle thing on the right... that really takes away from an otherwise pretty good shot.

    These really make me want to see more of what's going on. They seem too cropped and or tightly framed. I think you know what I mean...

    i agree with the bassman about the statue at the right on the first one,

    the sky and clouds feel really smooth, and the building somehow enhances this feeling, i like it. the statue distracts from this though

    nice soft lighting

    I felt there´s something that isn´t right. You guys are professional, you can put down in words what I can only feel. Regarding the frame-in, Venice is an old city, the spacial relationship of adjacent buildings is so much tight. If the purpose is to record this fact, my question is how to shot it honestly while at the same time the viewers are not turned off aesthetically? Thanks, lots of.
