Ciao Gae, sono sempre spettacolari le tue immagini notturne ... o di primo mattino! Bellissima in questa la luce che evidenzia tutte le asperità del muro e la vista in prospettiva. Very well done!!

Nice shot ! Great exposition, the lights on the surface of the wall had been spectacular.

very ncie pic here, however, I would love to see the tree which is hanging directly above in the way of the building, but apart from that it is an excellent take, well done

Very good night shot. Exposure is spot on and colours are attractive. Good clarity too.

What one picture Gae, SPLENDID night shot, the colours its perfectly and the perspective great, my compliments Gae!

Wonderful play of shadows & light highlighting this architecture and the stones's texture of the battlements! The POV is also excellent. With these lights and the tower ending, it gives an excellent perspective and depth to the shot. You well managed the light, Gae. Well done.

Amazing night photography you've got here. I think the 2 sec exposure made all the difference. And you've got it really sharp. Good job.

Another nice night shot. The castle has nice lighting and you show it to us well. The textures are really nicely rendered here, especially in the brick walls. It's so rough feeling. The light at the base of the wall almost acts like a modern moat, except of light not water. The perspective here is very good. I just think it seems to feel like it's tilting over about to fall because of looking up at the wall. Very nice.

Ciao Gae, it's a good night photo with the good depth of field, everything is sharp up to the background tower, nice composition too placing this walled castle on a diagonal to accentuate depth, and last but not least, a very good exposure control, with enough light to view all elements but not upset the eye, well taken !

Oplà! Fantastico! Ogni commento è pressoché inutile, se la vedessero gli Sforza si rammaricherebbero di non aver inventato queste luci!
ChrisJ (96610) 2004-12-10 4:21
Excellent night shot, with good sharpness & attractive silhouettes. Well done!

Great prespective and very clever transitions of the colourfull fore ground to a saturated b/w background !
Hanssie (10397) 2005-01-30 4:30
"Good night"-shot !
It's nice to see two different lights, on the castle we can see cold light, but giving the castle nice lines and we can see the warm light in the trees, nice combination and a good "night-shot" !

Great night shot of Milano castle. Colors and lights are fantastic. A small weak point is for me composition with this branches of trees on castle gate tower. Regards! Andrzej
