Cracking stuff, and I imagine it would retain its drama in monochrome too

A very cool image... a side of Venice seldom seen, whereabouts was this taken from, as I don't recognise this viewpoint at all?

I still think it's my No1 city in the World for me.

Thank you! I was lucky to capture the moment, as the sun suddenly appeared through the stormy clouds. I had to put exposure compensation to -1 to keep the sky from being overblown. After that, I've recovered several pictures from a single RAW file (EV 0,-1, -2,+1,+2) without any problems (I was shooting at ISO80) and merged them into a single HDR photo. Finally, a bit of Photoshop correction/cropping brought me the final result!

The viewpoint is near the Santa Maria del Rosario church, looking at the other side (Guidecca), more specific at Giudecca Hilton - the brick building in the photo. I really enjoyed staying in Venice too - beautiful city!
