I completed my first trip to Italy (Rome, Florence, Pizza and Venice) about two months ago. What a great opportunity to capture the beauty of this country! My struggle was to integrate my style of moving in close with the many areas that begged for a scenic view. The town that seemed to provide the best opportunity for applying both of these styles was Venice.. I believe this was because the narrow high walled canal segments could be made to look like a closeup-scenic (if there is such a thing) by carefully choosing the right perspective before tripping the shutter. I encourage you to view my Italy images in the Travel Collection of my site on FAA/Pixels for examples of images from this trip.
