Venetian artist

Posted by Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 29 January 2015 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

It was our camera clubs monochrome competition on Tuesday night and I managed to get a highly commended for this one that I took on the bank of the grand canal while we were in Venice last year


Thank you everyone who sent their thoughts and good wishes during my recent difficulties I really appreciate your support and friendship. I'm back now and plan to stick around for a while posting my images and visiting others blogs again.

Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback

A great shot Doug...excellent processing. Well deserved of winning an award. I am about to join a camera club and really looking forward to it :)

@Emma G: I can thoroughly recommend it, it's a great way of learning new techniques and also to pass on your knowledge to others. I think the critique I have received through entering club competitions has taught me much too. I hope you enjoy it Emma and thanks too ;-)
