An arcade in Genoa (Genova) in north west Italy. Might be Sottoripa? I liked the repetition and the warm cold color contrast here. This night shot avoided the strong shadows & oe highlights I got earlier in the afternoon. Genoa is the home of Christopher Columbus, who later went to Spain cap in hand seeking finance for an expedition to the Americas.

You play wonderful with light and shade.
This is taken out of a perfect angle, this cares for depth and perspective, What a lovely arches game, and wonderful ceiling.
Very well done, TFS.

Good morning Chris,
The archway indoor's this Cattedrale, I presume( as I remember).
Well positioned to show the archs pattern, in a most exquisite photojob done.
My cong.'s for a fine light management.

Certainly, this is the shot we would all like to make: colourful, patterned repeating arches, each a work of art and, together, making a far greater statement than each individual. The sense of perspective is excellent, with a few figures to supply scale and light and shadows to animate the whole.
My warm regards,

A wonderful perspective through these beautifully decorated arches. Top class light management creates a splendid mood with superb light and shadow contrasts. Clarity is excellent with no evidence of noise despite the relatively high ISO.

Amazing architectural capture with very good sidelight and perfect layout.
TFS and best regards

La succession des arches a un effet graphique. La longueur du corridor envoie mon regard à l'infini. La prise de vue permet de distinguer les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture des arches. La lumière environnante fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.

compliemnti per questa splendida fotografica colta in maniera straordinaria in una Genova straordinaria.
Conosco la città, sia pure non in maniera eccessivamente approfondita, ma non sono riuscito a capire il punto nel quale hai scattato la foto. Tuttavia, quale che sia stato il luogo, hai fatto una eccellente composizione, impreziosita da una luce molto ben distribuita che ha evidenziato molto bene colori e forme dando luogo ad una piacevole visione.
Complimenti! uno scatto veramente eccellente.
Ciao e buona giornata

When i saw the thumbnail for this, I went, "Aahh!" I do not want to ruin the moment by any other inadequate praise.
SWEETFREEDOM (24104) 2013-09-26 11:34
beuatiful arcade, i love colors light and details.
PaulVDV (25571) 2013-09-26 16:40
A quality work here!
The many successive arches and columns provide an excellent depth and an attractive graphical effect.
The reddish tones of the columns and the floor contrast well with the white ceiling between the arches.
Best regards, Paul

Cette perspective d'arches est superbement mise en valeur dans cette magnifique photographie.
danos (92568) 2013-09-26 23:13
fascinating the view as the presentation of the arcade with the excellent light and colour management to make the scene even more effective.I like the creative perspective as the clarity of the image.

Hi again, Splendid arches, amazing depth and colours. Fantastic light management. this striped arches are similar to Arab ones, but the shape is different. Superb presentation.
dkmurphys (54465) 2013-09-27 4:05
Spectacular graphical effect of the impressive arcades. I like the image, even more because of the lights.
Have a good weekend.

Ciao Chris, fantastic perspective on beautiful architecture, splendid light, excellent clarity and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
Waylim (25444) 2013-09-27 19:08
A really good shot, what I love here is the depth and perspective you have captured, the layers of repeating columns and arches of the ceiling going further back in receding size lead us all the way to the door, the vanishing point with two small person walking into it. all is so clear and sharp and the light in this low light. that is really good and not easy. Thanks.
macjake (63166) 2013-09-28 1:35
very cool indeed!
this is one of those tantalizing views because of the repetitive arches and continuous black/white patterns into the depths of the scene.
it sucks us inwards visually.
well seen and shot.
annjackman (21360) 2013-09-28 6:06
I am very impressed with the lighting in this shot. The patterns, colours and sharpness of the arcade are fascinating. I am glad that you caught the two people, giving life and scale to this high quality image.
Kind Regards, Ann
npecanhuk (72028) 2013-09-28 6:53
Very beautiful picture!
Special regards to the management of light, vertical format and composition!
You used those arches in a very attractive way to create such an eye-catching image!
TFS - congrats,

Just back from my Europe Adventures and I want to get right back on a plane and get over there again :)
Love this, it reminds me a little of the Mezquita in Cordoba, the symmetry, the repeating arches and the perspective, together with the carefully controlled light make this such a successful image. Great shot, congrats. Can't wait to see the rest of your Naples photos.
eldancer1 (33885) 2013-10-02 9:15
I feel like I am in a dream sequence going through a never ending arcade. Nicely captured with good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
ourania (38928) 2013-10-04 14:54
I like very much how you've captured the fascination of the architecture and the colours. You've worked really well with the depth and managed the challenging lighting very effectively. The adjustment of the view through the long arcade into the vertical frame is apt and maximizes the impact of the repetitive patterns. The play of warm, cold tones and shadows makes the image look rich and fascinating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
Angshu (56740) 2013-10-07 22:37
You had been on a great trip and brough fantastic pictures to share with us! Genoa, I understand from seeing many pictures, are famous for the arcades.
Here you have shown us one with excellent graphic effect and the repeating arcades that kind-of has a hypnotic effect.
Lovely depth and fine work!
carlo62 (41231) 2013-11-01 16:11
una grande profondità, messa in evidenza dalla sequenza di colonne e archi.
Eccellente l'esposizione con la differente intensità di luce tra quella calda delle colonne e quella più luminosa delle volte.
Un ottimo lavoro.
