On the left is the side of St. Mark’s Basilica and on the right is The Doge’s Palace in Venice. Due to the lighting and textures on the buildings I chose to process the image into a black and white photograph. I also cropped the bottom of the frame to remove the crowds of hundreds of tourists which I felt distracted attention away from these two beautiful buildings. The Doge’s Palace was originally the residence of the Doge of Venice (Duke and military leader). Today this palace is a museum and I can confirm that it is well worth a visit.
