Landscape view of Venice from the water showing the Dogana del Mare (customs house) & Church of San Maria della Salute, with more smaller buildings, and gondolas, to the right. A two masted sailing ship is in the foreground to the left with many others behind. The ship has been rocking during the exposure leading to a double image being formed.
