Venice old clock square
Lens: HD 31mm Limited Camera: Pentax K1 Photo Location: Venice ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F1.8 



Got in early before the tourists; summer bestoes early sunshine and lonely streets at photographes who care to wake up at 4am <much to the chagrin of their family>.

Converted B/W in Darktable using the colour-zones module. C&C welcome.

Beautiful !! Great job. Yes, if you donít want to miss Magic Hour (locally around 6:07),you better get up early. Even then youíll be pressured to know your exposure controls, because you have limited time to ruin your shot completely

Very nice, but I would be tempted to correct the keystone distortion.

A fair critique, I'll try to eliminate the key-stone and hope that the clock or parts of it wont dissappear. thank you.

Indeed peter, in summer esp it becomes slightly difficult for an ol-bag-of-bones like me as the sunrise is much earlier in the northern hemisphere. You are right though, I got some nice keepers early in the morning; later in the day, I did not even bother to take the camera out as the blazing sun made it impossible (for me) to shoot. I was just hopping from one Gelato store to the next.

I find myself wondering what's just to the left. I would like to see something finishing off that space, for completeness. Or maybe you cropped it on purpose, IDK.
I'm not following the keystone comment...?

I'm wondering the same; Damn, now I have to look up the photo sequence and satiate my curiosity piqued by your comment. Keystone - AFAIK was a critique to correct the rightmost piller to appear straight; to simulate the effect of using a shift lens.

I think that makes this shot work for me. My eyes follow the arch around the clock and the back into the center.

found it. The left was a nondescript wall with little texture; in hindsight, I should have attempted a pano. I also realised that the picture was clicked with a HD 31mm limited lens at F1.8 rather than the 24-70mm as stated earlier. I have now corrected the same. thank you.

That's the best advice! I love how you've combined two subjects well worth photographing individually. Doing that would probably be less interesting. This framing directs my eye between clock and door, making this a very dynamic image

I find my eye drawn to the clock and the archway is perfectly situated to make it quite balanced. Nice shot!
