Short exposure of people walking across St. Mark’s Square in Venice.
This picture was taken in February 2018 during the Venice Carnival. It was grey, somewhat windy, and most people were wrapped up in black against the cold, which is what caught my eye for this shot, as they looked mysterious and shadow like against the white stone surroundings.
It took a lot of trial and error to get this image right. With so many moving elements, I ended up with many variations of the same image, and this was the stand out composition. I particularly like the two seagulls trails that form archways over the pillars in the centre.
