Excellent pics and gorgeous colors. I could scroll & see all day. From the Exif, I can't tell what lens was used and did you use a monopod ?

Cheers

Very nice but there's a couple of details...

Some crops are too tight, some are a bit too large and let pieces of the background disturb the beauty of the shot. Some are slightly tilted...

Well, as you may see nothing really bad as the shots themselves are excellent and convey the beauty of a city that I DO love.

You did a great job assuming that Venice is badly crowded and NOBODY appears below your subjects...simply amazing. I imagine that some crops are tight also to cut out unwanted parts. If you don't mind, I've listed below some of the shots that could be IMHO improved by a little and simple PP on them, if possible of course.

789741387_img_7151w.jpg is SPLENDID but where's the hand ??
789738534_img_0424w.jpg is too tight, we miss the top hat !!
789739485_img_2496w.jpg is too tight on the right

794284594_img_0875W.jpg is SPLENDID (I would have desaturated the orange coats in the reflection)
789739757_img_2521w.jpg is too tight, we miss the top hat !!

789741878_img_8066W.jpg is a bit too saturated and need to be croped more tight to take away the stone on the bottom right

789739986_img_2536W.jpg is croped too tight on top and too large on the right (check the disturbing white line on the bottom right)

789740206_img_2718W.jpg is croped too tight on top and left and too large on the right (check the tiny piece of window)
794289544_img_7258W.jpg is tilted and misses the left man accessory
789740871_img_3502W.jpg misses info on the left...
794282986_img_0137W.jpg NICE with the shadow, but the feet..
794289040_img_7132W.jpg Beautiful but at f14 and 1/60 is a bit soft

And thanks for sharing !!

Re: 5DII in Venice, Italy for Carnival 2010

It seem bit soft to me on most, is it slow shutter/wrong exposure? Why don't you bump ISO to higher numbers? F14?

All natural light or no?

All natural light or no? Looks like you might have used off camera light but maybe not.

It's Venice light man...

Just joking!

By the way: the pictures are great.

Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say... no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh... depended on the breaks.

Re: All natural light or no?

Only about three used an off camera flash. (Canon 580 and PW)

Incredible. Simply incredible. How did you get them to pose for you along, forgetting the throngs?

Very beautiful, especially like your tasteful colour grading and perspectives. Makes me want to go to venice!

Thanks to you

I never take the time to critique and I never critique the artistic part, but your shots are good and need little if any simply technical changes to really shine...
