Photographer's Note

This is a canal in Padua. There were a few nice canals running through the city. I really like canals because I think they add a nice touch to the city that allows for a pleasant, watery, area in contrast to concrete and they add another potential for transportation.

The canals were originally used to transport goods from outside the city into the city and around the city. It also served to connect Venice and Padua by boat. Today much of the system has been filled in, unfortunately, just as the system in Milan has been but there is still a nice circuit left.

This crossing is on the road between the Prato della Valle and the Basilica del Santo (St. Anthony's Basilica). On this side of the bridge was this pleasant scene. I wish there had been some sunlight this day but I didn't get lucky.

In PSE I increased the saturation of the reds, yellows, greens and magenta to bring back some of the color that was lost between the cloudy day and then the scan. I also ran autolevels.
