This looks superb in B&W, the intricacies of the architecture are depicted in fine detail. POV and compisition are excellent. The facade stretches up from the bottom corners of the frame and the domed roof is perfectly positioned. Excellent lighting too.
samson (2018) 2011-03-31 1:26
In Italy, even the ceiling is a piece of art. Lovely shot

Beautiful POV excellent view upwards capture to this Galleria Umberto in the centre of Naples! Contrast symmetry and notes superb Regards

A lovely shot, almost futuristic. You almost expect to see a giant spider in the centre of the web.
The use of black and white intensifies the effect.

A fine composition of this splendid roof work with its fascinating geometric patterns. Perfectly presented in black and white.

Very good point of view, it is making the interest of this photo providing a nice graphic effect, where the lines and shapes are underlined by the B&W treatment.
sabermonajati (11387) 2011-03-31 2:40
this building elaborate.this fram is splendid and glamorous.
JFS (32459) 2011-03-31 3:17
Amazing geometry masterly captured by you. B&W gives a touch of elegance to the image.
francio64 (39888) 2011-03-31 4:43
ma quante foto posti in un giorno?
Stamattina c'era l'interno della chiesa di Spaccanapoli e adesso questa? "???" Come hai fatto?
Bellissimo il grafismo sulla cupola di questa bella galleria.
Da qualunque lato la si fotografa, si ottiene sempre una bella foto.
Ottimo il taglio verticale e la scelta di virare l'immagine in bianco e nero.
Well done and TFS!
Ho visto il tema che hai creato, davvero molto bello.
Tante foto dello stesso luogo, ma tutte diverse.
Tutte foto fatte secondo l'interpretazione personale di ognuno di noi.
paololg (31448) 2011-03-31 5:14
Wowwww!!! Che grafica! Bravissima, cara Lisa, hai postato veramente un capolavoro in B&W, con una incredibile definizione dei dettagli. Sembra una antica stampa fatta con l'inchiostro!
Non avevo mai visto un simile POV di questa galleria napoletana, ma per fortuna che ci sei tu dall'Australia! :-)
Complimenti anche per gli stupendi contrasti di luci e ombre. Bravissima!
Ciao, buon venerdì!
Il tuo Colonnello

This one is one of your best to my taste. The symmetrie is perfect. The use of the vertical framing gives a lot of hight to the picture. The usse of the black ant white is perfect.
Have a good day
timecapturer (49288) 2011-03-31 6:05
ooooo! my eyes hurt! an amazing shot of the roof of this stunning galleria. Works so well in B&W and the symmetry is outstanding. It is optically a shot that makes you blink. Cleverly conceived and well taken. Bravo Lisa!
eldancer1 (36343) 2011-03-31 6:22
Wow! What an amazing architecture. I like your low pov of this magnificient and historic mall. I think it's better that you did it in B&W, more real. Great dof with good contrast, well done, tfs.
Mari63 (4085) 2011-03-31 8:21
Ciao Lisa, spettacolare pov, ripreso in bianco e nero poi è il massimo.
ottima la gestione della luce.
Un caro saluto Mari

Very attractive and beautiful architecture picture!
The place is very nice and interesting and your idea for pov, vertical format, symmetrical composition and black & white was very successful! I love the results!

PaulVDV (32599) 2011-03-31 12:24
Very good choice for black & white.
This is really a masterpiece (the gallery and your picture!).
The graphical effects are extraordinary and were already visible on the thumbnail.
Best regards, Paul

bellissima variante alla tua speculare e simmetrica ..precedente ...
quella di Francesco si colloca a metà.
Un luogo si presta estremamente al "posare ...

Impresionante grafisco y contrastes!! Los fuertes negros destacan aun más el grafisco y la perfecta definición. Te agrego a mis favoritas de fotografos!

adores (46363) 2011-03-31 18:23
This is just great! I like this composition a lot, seems the facade is crowned by circles. B&w was a great choice here and the way you framed it is just perfect. Very good work!
emka (106662) 2011-03-31 18:29
Ciao Lisa, A bit similar to the photos you posted earlier but always very impressive view. Fantastic graphic composition in black and white.
jjcordier (79297) 2011-03-31 22:51
Je me souviens de tes images précédentes de cette galerie. le noir et blanc renforce encore le graphisme du lieu et tu as parfaitement soigné ton cadrage. Du très beau travail!
lousat (97515) 2011-04-01 1:27
Ciao Lisa,uno stile che gia' conosco ma che e' davvero difficile da imitare e dimenticare...questi sono scatti di altissima classe,un grande applauso alla maestra! Buona serata e buon weekend,Luciano
ikeharel (78229) 2011-04-01 5:28
The B&W pic. enhanced the contrast on the fine lines of architecture's, Lisa.
Reminds me a similar one in Milano.

A classic one Lisa - have a good weekend.
geoant68 (331) 2011-04-01 23:33
very beautiful this interior B/W shot with the texture of the covered ceiling to make the scene so attractive.The main round celling is just superb.
jaywalker (16105) 2011-04-02 1:37
Hi Lisa, What a beautiful B/W composition offering some excellent sharp quality, the light is truly superb & I love the way you have cropped the picture as it works beautifully, kind regards Wilson.

Amazing graphism and details in this beautiful picture from Naples
Well chosen the black and white
Excellent sharpness and contrast

lilito (3534) 2011-04-02 7:26
En effet, une perspective tout à fait géniale, bravo!
magalik (6103) 2011-04-02 12:48
Ciao carrissima Lisa,
Sinceramente, la vignetta non mi dava molto voglia di guardare la grande versione perché ci sono già tante foto di questo luogo su TE ma devo dire che questa è l'una delle più belle che ne ho viste. Il trattamento in b&n e la qualità sono perfetti e permettono di vedere pieni di dettagli.
Questo luogo è veramente impressionante. Probabilmente una foto che proverò di prendere anch'io nel futuro.
Buona domenica Lisa. Un abbraccione.
photoray (13981) 2011-04-02 19:39
A mesmerizing vision for the canopy's geometric curved lines intersecting each other, and anchored by the vintage building.
Congratulations on a fine composition,
jafadabret (56501) 2011-04-03 22:55
Tu as su tirer parti de la lumière et de la géométrie de cette verrière hors du commun.
lpi (4857) 2011-04-04 4:29
Superbe ce point de vue de cet endroit magnifique!
Très belle composition!
DRamos (512) 2011-04-04 11:06
Great graphic composition that samples in this picture, the frame is just to show what you teach. The composition of light and shadow is also very well chosen, and the choice of black and white photography, brings more strength to that game.
Waylim (25436) 2011-04-04 23:56
Really cool shot here, Wow, what a POV looking up at the dome, wonderful POV, good symmerical composition, all the patterns make really cool graphics and lines create strong perspective. good choice to presented it in black and white. Technically perfect in sharpness, clarity and exposure. Have a good week.
humayun (3105) 2011-04-05 3:56

Best regards, Atousa
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-04-16 1:53
From here, Italy exist far away, very very far away. But I have been to Italy twice in my life. I was still a student. But I never saw Galleria Umberto, what a shame, how unfortunate. But again I am now lucky enough to encounter this image here at TE. The clarity, precise framing, and beautifully finished black and white image makes me feel as if I am actually standing in this gallery myself. I am certain that the place has an amazing impact for those who visit. I am now visiting the gallery through your eyes. And I consider myself very fortunate. I must thank you for sharing this experience with us.
Hellas (7015) 2011-04-19 23:43
Congratulations on this picture!
Excellent definition and symmetry; I love the angle you’ve used and in combination with the 17-40mm lens the result is great!
The image is perfectly sharp and composed.
Noel_Byrne (33588) 2014-08-24 8:11
I hate shopping, and I hate shopping malls, because they are all the same, bland faceless modern warehouses full of shoes and mad people trying to get bargains. But this is something el altogether. I know you have shared this place before, but it's impossible not to get excited every time I see it. If this were local to me, I would be happy to go shopping a lot more often, o the assumption I am allowed bring my camera :) a beautiful choice in black and white too.
Out of interest, are there any problems with taking pictures here? I know shipping centres in Dublin do not like people with cameras at all, and will often stop people with a lag camera in hand. I guess not here though, architecture this epic needs to be shared with the world.
I hope you and yours are all well and good, and that you are winning the good fight. I am still in shock at what is happening the the great Barrier reef and am amazed at the lack of attention it is getting around the world.
Be good, best wishes from the emerald isle.
P.s. two weeks holidays start today, woohoo! Bringing my dad to cork for a small holiday and then heading up north Antrim. I might just get to see the beauty of donegal next week
