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!
