Hi dear TE friends
Place : Milan/ Piazza del Duomo
Theme: (Trip) Charms of Europe (VIII) - Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
To see: map view and Ws
The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is a covered double arcade formed of two glass-vaulted arcades at right angles intersecting in an octagon; it is prominently sited on the northern side of the Piazza del Duomo in Milan, and connects to the Piazza del Scala (the Teatro Scala).
The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II (seen from the Piazza del Duomo) is quite possibly the most beautiful shopping mall/center around.The grand scale and detail of this beautiful building is impressive! The decorative details inside are equally impressive--look down at the beautiful marble and mosaic floors or up to the stained-glass dome. Here you will also find upscale bistro restaurants and shops such as Prada and Bernasconi....what more could you want.
Just outside you will find a sidewalk cafe where you may sample a few Italian dishes and gaze to your heart's content at the beauty which surrounds you.
I hope you like it, a big hug to all of you TE friends

bella vista di Piazza del Duomo a Milano con l'ingresso alla Galleria di Vittorio Emanuele a dominare sulla scena.
Ottima la gestione della luce.
La presenza dei turisti anima bene la scena.
Well done and TFS!

Hi Filipe, I was here a couple of years & looking for photos, however I probably stood in the same place this photo was taken & only looked at the Cathedral, how could I have missed a shot like this, a great picture, kind regards Wilson.

What a good shot,going to the end of the Galleries and out, when I was there I went to a shopping next to the Galleries to take photos from above, you stay and captured a perfect symmetrical image plenty of colors

nice the view of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II's façade,with the lot of people to be in front and in it.I like the warm afternoon light as the clarity and the sharpness of the shot.
Have a good month,Danos

bella inquadratura frontale sulla Galleria con la piazza del Duomo animata di gente.
Buono lo sharp e la resa dei colori,
Kielia (20445) 2011-02-01 3:34
this is a fascinating impression - where all the people play an important role - accompanied by an interesting note. The photographer's perspective is excellent. The lady with the red shirt who is so elegantly walking into the scene is the icing on the cake! My compliments!

ici, le centrage est de mise, la cadrage parfait et la qualité de la mise au point, donne toute la valeur et la beauté de cette architecture.
Une puissance de bleu bien retravaillée en post processing.
My best regards.
ikeharel (37316) 2011-02-01 6:39
Best architecture's corner in Milano, fabulous light and colors, well collected.
The people around the piazza makes a vivid image,
peppe59 (14547) 2011-02-01 8:15
fantastica luce sulla piazza del duomo, ottimo lavoro nei contrasti e nella profondità.
Nard (6913) 2011-02-01 13:37
Nice composition with a excellent quality, light and sharpness. I like the people on the place with different clothes, colors, postions and the perspective.
hispic (9619) 2011-02-01 19:23
Afternoon sunlight in summer creates a really impressive image, and it shows the facade of Galleria three-dimensionally. Beautiful work.
Schnappilic (7927) 2011-02-02 2:00
Good capture with best contrast and light.
Cricri (86431) 2011-02-02 5:29

sacimar (25957) 2011-02-02 10:53
bella imagen de este conocido lugar, me gustan los colores y tonosque el sol proporcionaba cuando la tomaste, los edificios son magnificos, buen trabajo,
UlfE (13730) 2011-02-02 11:39
A very nice shot indeed of Piazza del Duomo. I love your inclusion of people especially the lady in red in the foreground is great. Personally I would perhaps have try include a little more of the sky, but I guess that this is very much a matter of taste. TFS and have a nice evening!
vasilpro (40192) 2011-02-02 13:47
Wonderful composition, lovely warm light and colors, very good contrast, sharpness and clarity, excellent POV, beautiful arhitecture.
Have a nice evening, Vasilis

Ola dear Filipe
This photo raises my curiosity even further to see Milan. I have been to Italy so many times (mostly to visit my family) but have never seen Milan and its glorious cathedral and Gallery Victor Emanuele. Did you know there is a smaller version of the Gallery in Naples? Superb warm colours and golden lights here and the perspective created is wonderful. The people add such dynamism and trluy show that this city is the largest and most populous in Italy.
Juntas (7958) 2011-02-03 3:40
Olá Filipe. Uma bela foto dessa bela praça bem concorrida. As pessoas passeando dão uma vida enorme à bela arquitectura do shopping. Boas cores e sharpness perfeita assim como uma boa captação da luz. Nice work.
ciakgiak (30329) 2011-02-03 13:36
splendida inquadratura della Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, la luce ha sicuramente contribuito ad esaltare i colori ed i contrasti degli elementi architettonici.
Molto bella la vivacità espressa dalle persone, la qualità è eccellente.
Un caro abbraccio
josepmarin (55027) 2011-02-04 5:38
buen encuadre con simetría de la magnífica arquitectura de esta plaza, y gran dinamismo creado por la gente que llena el lugar, en una composición atractiva. La perspectiva de la galería es muy profunda.
La saturación de los colores da mucha fuerza a la imagen, aunque el azul del cielo parece poco natural, y la gestión de la luz es muy buena.
Longroute (19390) 2011-02-04 13:32
A very luminous Milan!
The composition exploits well the sense of depth created by the lines in the pavement and the light is what makes everything so bright and the colours so vivid. The excellent sharpness makes one appreciate the many interesting details.
jhm (122444) 2011-02-05 0:45
Nice cityscape, taken on my birthday, really a wonderful image with the buildings as eye catchers, also the long shadow of the people are beautiful.
You chose a very well angle, this gives depth and perspective.
Sharpness and clarity are very pleasant for look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
macjake (39227) 2011-02-07 21:22
as i'm looking at this, there are so many compositions available. love the middle area with that depth and the curved cieling.
my favorite part though, are all the people scattered about the ground.
JCG (35129) 2011-02-07 22:21
Un bâtiment vraiment imposant joliment mis en valeur avec ce traitement des couleurs et de cette lumière qui apporte beaucoup de douceur à l'ensemble. Endroit très animé comme à l'intérieur de cette galerie magnifique que nous pouvons voir en WS. Belles photos pleine de détails intéressants, merci Filipe.
Avec toutes mes amitiés et une excellente journée,
rodgerg (55767) 2011-02-08 5:13
A POV very well selcetd for this beautiful cityscape. this POV give a pleasant impression of symetry. Good managment of light under this blue sky which give beautiful contrasts. Image full of life with the passingpeoples.
Royaldevon (17791) 2011-02-08 5:42
This certainly looks like a very attractive place with the stunning architecture and the receding mall. It is all so nicely accentuated with the low sun, creating a warm glow to the stonework and interesting, long shadows on the pavement.
I like the busy effect, created by the numerous figures. The lady in red is strongly positioned. (I have visions of all us photographers patiently waiting until someone clothed in red appears on the scene!)
You have good sharpness and a fine sensde of depth.
My warm regards,
abmdsudi (26233) 2011-02-08 9:03
It's a great view of a fabulous building to be sure, and the viewpoint of the commanding building is absolutely fine as primary focal point. The presence of human element is equally attractive and speck of reds works well for good scale reference that add life to this image. A picture with great perspective and the light quality and soft shadows further enhance the depth greatly. Excellent vibrant colors dan saturation with good contrast. Superb sharpness and fine textures. Great capture, Congrats.
clic (11001) 2011-02-08 13:12
Obrigado pela visita, amigo Filipe.
I intended to buy a Rolex for me and a Cartier for my wife!So I think this large shopping center could be quite suitable for our needs. We now jump in our private jet to reach Milano!
Grandiose architecture depicted with beautiful contrasts by low side light.
Much depth given by view of "rich pedestrians".
Abraços from West Palm Beach, USA.
papagolf21 (76561) 2011-02-08 14:46
Bonsoir, cher Filipe,
Très bonne présentation de la Place. La magnificence est bien présente. La lumière embellit avec talent ces prestigieux édifices, qui se parent, de décorations étonnantes.
Un cadrage parfaitement pensé.
Graal (88886) 2011-02-09 0:14
good presentation from Milano. An interesting architecture. Nice view at photo in WS also. Good informations about the Gallery. I like it.
Have a nice day.
subhendu_bagchi (16590) 2011-02-09 3:24
a nice capture using the symmetry. You choose a nice POV to add the colourful people in the yard which added depth to it and help us to understand the dimension of the architecture. Great light control and fine sharpness. Excellent shot. Tfs.
siolaw (37568) 2011-02-09 7:48
I like this symmetric framing of the typically Milanese buildings. Colours are well saturated and details well sharp.
foozi (7101) 2011-02-09 16:33
what an exciting place. Lots of people and the building is special , unique and classical. You have done very well in showing the details and surroundings of this place.
The colours are lively and offer a nice contrast with the blue sky.
The perspecktive of the arch is excellent, the windows give a lovely graphical view.
AKITA (15125) 2011-02-09 20:33
a beautiful view picture of very artistic scenery,
superb light shows us its attractive 3D details very well,
this symmetrical buildings and irregular people are well balanced to make beautiful composition here,
and the colors of red wears and blue sky are well contrasted to make buildings so attractive ,
very fine atmosphere is well expressed,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Uma fotografia de boa qualidade, cores naturais e definição impecável, um postal para turistas. No entanto, não será uma foto que ficara nos anais da tua galeria. Um grande abraço. Antonio
jemaflor (68913) 2011-02-10 11:13
Nice architecture, good effect with light, well taken from a good angle, a nice bleu sky.
adramad (27552) 2011-02-10 12:44
Bella composicion con un encuadre con perfecta simetria, genial la profundidad de campo que se visualiza atraves del arco de la galeria, la luz dorada de la tarde que baña las fachadas da un toque encantador, el colorido es magnifico y nos da una imagen muy atractiva. Muy buen trabajo.
bukitgolfb301 (30065) 2011-02-10 14:24

skippy007 (12500) 2011-02-19 21:10
Hello Filipe, Yes I like it, I like the composition here, with the lady in red in the FG an excellent element adding depth & interest, also I like your PP work, very effective & eye catching. Beautiful presentation.
Angshu (51174) 2011-02-20 7:41
Superb view...like the details of the glass arcade inside the Galleria. Good symmetric view in fine light with lots of activity in the piazza. Fine work my friend!
mkamionka (24529) 2011-03-01 7:21
beautiful presentation of this famous passage. I have been there few times yet without a camera.
I like very much the central symmetry. The best aspect here is surely the original light. The sunn seems to be so low already, the shades are incredibly long which is well visible looking at the shade of the woman in the FG. The last rays of the sun subtly touch the surface of the architecture giving it an unusual almost 3D effect. People are nicely dispersed throughout the square providing the sense of the scale. I like it very much.
jlbrthnn (79773) 2011-05-13 10:32
Oi o Filipe, a fotografia dá uma idéia boa deste lugar vasto. O centring de centred descreve esta galeria monumental efetivamente. A luz, as cores, a limpeza é excelente. Bravo.
O fim bom de dia.
pierrefonds (48347) 2011-06-25 4:36
The width of the piazza is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. TThe people wearing red are attracting the eye. Have a nice day.
