This is pretty much perfect. The colours are strong, but contrasting in a very soft way, giving me the feeling that this is an old painting, filled with history. This sense of oldness is, however, opposed by the modernity that high speed symbolises. This contrast between movement and stillness is very pleasant, in my opinion. I also like how each component of the picture has one predominant colour - green to the water, red (and white) to the houses and blue to the sky -, for it gives an idea of individuality to each of the elements, but the fact that they all have this kind of paleness makes them mingle and we have the contrasting feeling of unity. The angle is also very interesting; I love the way you used the houses as both frame and central subject, it gives the picture depth. The 0.5 in originality I didn't give you was merely because Venice is a very common subject - and it's so difficult to be original nowadays -, but you still managed to make it somehow very special.
First off great picture, good setting. What a beautiful place !
I love the effect with the boats ! Though the orange is a bit orange a tat dark witch kind of attracts all of the attention.
Other then that i wouldn't know what to say then what a wonderful picture !
i like the fact that there is one boat that isn't moving which is kind of a contrast in the picture it seems to in a way even out the fact that the others are moving.
Sometimes you will see pictures like this where everything seems to be moving because there is nothing standing still clearly next to it or close to it.
Overall i think this is an awesome picture i wish it was a little bit lighter just a tat though, i love the boats that seems to move really fast and that there is one standing still. The houses look great to.
