Textured Venice

Venice is so stunningly beautiful.

I loved wandering in Venice.  It seems at every turn there is some interesting and beautiful scene, and of course it always involves a canal or two!  Today's photo is one that I captured just outside of our little apartment rental we had.  I literally came out the door, took a left turn, and started shooting.  This stuff is everywhere.

I created this HDR in Aurora and then decided I would add a basic texture to it as well.  While I don't use textures on many photos, I find that when I do it really does add an interesting element to the shot.  In fact, I have started taking textured photos when I travel so that I have some of my own I can use.  It's rather fun!
