I took this photo last month in Venice, Italy. The man was sitting on a small bridge waiting for people willing to travel in his gondola. I'll share more photos from Venice soon...

The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10, provided by Samsung Electronics. Co., Ltd.

His posture characterizes him so well.

wow! Amazing picture! :)
It would be really weird if it was the same gondola man that i saw when i was in Venice :D He was sitting on a bridge as you say but i was too shy to get a picture :)

I'm interested in how the black and white of the man's shirt is a different set of tones than the background. It's subtle but works to bring him out front.

Not that you need the publicity so much, but I've featured this photo in a DA blog post here: [link]

Again, great work.

Amazing portrait...the foreground so clear, he almost moves in front of the backdrop.

I love how sharp the black and white stripes of his uniform contrast with the fading background. I'm honestly falling in love with your photos. :heart:

Also, he's quite handsome :meow:
