Another attempt at something a little bit different for me. I generally stick to colour, but I thought I would try converting a few of my images into mono.
The original colour version is below (click on the colour image to view it properly).
In the background is the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore, designed by Andrea Palladio and located on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore. Facing the Bacino di San Marco, the church plays a central role in the panorama from the Piazzetta.
