Corso di Porta Ticinese, particularly in the stretch between the churches of San Lorenzo and Sant'Eustorgio, has many trendy, ethnic-type shops for clothes, furniture etc., and it has also become a focal point for young nightlife. It is close to another characteristic shopping and nightlife area, the Navigli canal district (Ripa di Porta Ticinese, Via Ascanio Sforza). On the Naviglio Grande canal, on the last Sunday of each month, there is a large antiques market with stalls selling everything from postcards to furniture.
This picture was taken yesterday 28.11.2004 at 6.30 a.m.: San Eustorgio is on the right; San Lorenzo at the end of the street.

La risposta ce l'hai nell'insegna "frozen".:-)
Ottimo nightshot con una grande profondita'
di campo e composizione. I ciotoloni caratteristici
sono messi molto bene in evidenza.

Très jolie photo de nuit,mais c'est presque dommage qu'il n'y a pas un tram qui passe,avec la pause lente,vous auriez obtenu un très bel effet!

Good nocturnal picture, and I like the perspective.

A beautiful street picture, particularly because it is this way empty, no people to see, the tram rails gives excellent depth Gae, the lighting is perfect and beautiful, excellent night shot!

Incredibile, una strada di Milano senz'auto! Hai dovuto alzarti presto per trovarla...
Nonostante che le alte luci ovviamente 'sparino' per la sovraesposizione, i riflessi sul selciato danno proprio la sensazione di freddo e umido,... quella sensazione che ricordo bene dai tempi in cui facevo il pendolare all'Università (treno delle 06:42...)
La luce è allegra, ma a me i ricordi portano un po' di malinconia...

Very beautiful night composition, with a great depth of field, underlined well by the line of lighting to the lower part of the rails.
The exposure is very good and I like the atmosphere, it misses just a human factor to give a little life to this scene.
Good job Gae.

This is a really good one from you Gae.
The best in this is the low angle you took it, making extra depth through the pales in the way, the line are good and the nightshot is a great succes. I like it a lot. This is a very good photo, with my compliments

Ciao Gae, bellissima questa, la profondità con i paletti che si perdono nell'infinito, le pietre umide che riflettono la bella luce notturna, inoltre la nitidezza dell'immagine ... molto ben fatta!
PS: saluti dal sud! :)

bellissima foto! umidita', atmosfera, luci notturni e prospettivita' infinita. Hai catturato molto bene la sensazione del cso Ticinese presto la mattina dopo una serata forte ai bar! Mi ricorda quando devo tornare con gli amici verso piazza Duomo molto tardi e la strada mi sembra lunghissima! ;->

Makes me miss my old home. Great shot

One of those well seen and narrative photos, showing how a place looks and feels like, in a different country. This is one lonely street and it looks forboding too. It makes one wonder what's further up on the street. Gae, what does those metal poles on the side of the walkway for?

I really like these early morning photos of yours. They are managed very well in terms of lighting and crispness. The colors turned out great here, too. This low point of view is excellent to allow us to see the textures and reflections of the ground so well. It also gives a nice drawn out pull into the photo. The lights add a nice repetition with the perspective. The quiet streets have been photographed very nicely by you once again.

Good shooting position Gae. Very well use of the light and the details works well in the compo.

Bonjour Gae, Quelle belle photo de nuit bien composée!

Proxilva (2157) 2004-12-06 13:28
the colors are soo nice green in the light and red in the shades excellent!!!
and the compo couldn't be better... amazing shot!! i love it

Very nice night shot, Gae! I'm impressed with the clarity of the road, the metal poles and the buildings in the foreground! Good colors, too! The absence of people in this street at around 6:30am really gives you that 'isolated' feeling. Thanks for sharing with us how a Milan scene looks like! Great work! rgds.

Hey, Gae, this one is so, so cool! It's amazing there is almost no perspective narrowing in this image! Hoses are just straight, unbelievable. Also, the lighting is fabulous here. I just can't stop wowing over this pic! I'm planning on a trip to Italy but it seems it won't be real until maybe September... Last time I was in Italy some 10 years ago and I miss it so much!
Ho parlato italiano un po ma mia conosenza sta male un male un male perche io ho non practicato molto. Memoria non e bene. Allora. Augurii. Tom

What a neat shot Gae, your composition and exposure on this perfectly fantastic image
has made it into my favorite list.

Très belle lumière et beaucoup de netteté dans cette photo, bravo Gae.
Il faut parfois se lever tôt pour faire de telle photo.
j'aime bien l'image de l'Olympus C-5060.
