I visited Venice last week and took many pictures while there. It is a fascinating city and very picturesque, the streets and colours are extremely vibrant.
I wanted to share some with a view to eliciting comments on what viewers here think of them. Here goes with two photographs. I will post more in the thread later...

The second shot works better for me than the first. I like the reflections in the second shot but could I suggest that you crop about 20% off the bottom of the shot.

Nice shot, Pritam.
I am sure you are having fun in Venice. It is well known for its beauty.
Well for your shots, I guess including the lower part of the building could have brought more points of interest. If I were you, I would have waited a li'l longer to have a human element in the picture. (Someone looking out of the window)
For the pic no. 2. You could have done a better job with a different Point of View. I am not sure if that was possible to do.

A great selection of images, Pritnam.
Many of the buildings are splayed outward at the top owing to the down angle of the camera when the image was taken. Some of this can be corrected in post processing by using a Skew adjustment but you will lose some of the image on the sides. A better approach is to keep the camera as level, front to back, as possible and still get as much of the image in the frame as possible or try to get the camera lower if conditions permit.
Venice is a fascinating place when you think about the buildings of Venice being constructed on closely spaced Alder trunk wooden piles driven into the mud that have lasted for hundreds of years!
