Ive been to Venice many times. I dont remember seeing the horses at Piazza San Marco. Any idea where they are located? Being as old as they are Im even more impressed at the skills of those early craftsmen.

The old, original ones, are located inside of St Mark's Basilica at Piazza San Marco.

The replicas are on top of the entrance in to the Basilica.

Aahh, there are 4 horses over the front door to the Basilica. Ive never been inside so didnt get to see the originals. And from down on street level they arent that noticeable since there is so much to see and so much going on. Well if Im ever there again I will certainly be paying better attention and thinking of your post here. Thanks.

yeah it seems that they would be hard to spot when not looking for them.
Thanks yourself for getting me into tracking down the originals... It was fun

BTW: Do you EVER sleep?

Sleep is a luxury for the young. When you get older time is more precious and sleeping is just a nightly form of death which comes soon enough.

Kungliga Dramatiska Teatern (The Royal Dramatic Theater)

#1 and #2 , two statues, one referring to Poesin (Poetry) and the other Dramatiken (Drama)
Poetry is done with Tone Compressor and the left Detail Enhancer



#3 Panorama HDR of the building


#4


I love the reflection in the roof on this one.

Im kinda partial to Dramatiken myself. I like the colors better. But all good stuff. Also like your last shot. Nice blend of pure colors. Just wish it was a bit wider to get all the name in.

You have the complete name in the reflections, Bynx - just upside-down.....

Acapulco!
Thanks for another 'show' here.

The statues came out quite good in HDR, unfortunatly the stretched-out hand of 'drama' is hiding his own face...

I quite like the teater-building itself. Its quite a powerful composition and its a stately building, giving off vibes of past grandeur with the big murals on top, the massive stone-front and those pillars - magnificent!! I am not an art-critique, but the font-style give me a hint of 'Jugendstil' or 'Art Nouvo' type of timespan? 1910 to 1925 when it was buildt?

What lens did you use there? I miss the EXIF-datas here...

#4 is a beautiful shot, even if it has a strange format (I would never have thought of that myself...), but its golden colors, its warm glow and the perfect reflection pulls it out.

Well done.

Firstly i apologize for the awkward angles that I've used for taking these pictures.
It was raining all the time when I was out taking pictures, so I had to move fast.

I actually failed pretty badly with the sign, sorry Bynx. Here's a better crop.

Walter, your quite right as to when the building was built. It was done 1908 at the cost of 6.3 million SEK, 3.8 million more than expected.
Also, I used the 18-55 lens for all of the pictures done within this trip, as stated in the first post

Then your kit-lens is a good-one, Acapulco!

My son in law (svigersønn / sværson?) bought himself a Nikon D90 yesterday, but with the 18-105mm. kitlens.

I am green with envy......!
