Hello Dear Friends!
I spent last few days sightseeing the amazing city of Rome and testing my new camera Olympus OM-D EM-5 which I'm really happy to have.
This colorful neon has been seen and captured at Via di Ripetta, one of the historical streets in the center of Rome (Campo Marzio) which starts from Piazza del Popolo. No tripod used. Hope you like it!

Spectacular detail, a genuine image from Italy. Well taken.

ci sarò passato mille volte sotto questa insegna e mai ho pensato a fotografarla attratto da ben altri soggetti.
Eppure tu hai dimostrato con questa foto che anche il più banale dei soggetti può diventare interessante se ben fotografato, come tu hai saputo fare in maniera eccellente in questo scatto. Bravissima.
Taglio e inquadratura perfetti e così si può dire anche dei colori. Una foto di grande effetto, ottimamente realizzata.
Ciao e buona domenica

This is not the sort of shot we have come to expect from Rome but it is a completely refreshing change.
Your new camera has given excellent colours and sharpness to this fine, upward shot. I like how the bright, neon letters stand out so well against the deep blue sky.
Have a great Sunday,

super pomysl na zdjecie i rewelacyjne wykonanie!Naprawde ciekawy temat na cos oryginalnego z Wiecznego Miasta.zdjecie bylo robione chyba bez statywu,tym bardziej super jakosc(nawet pomimo uzycia jasnego obiektywu).
Jak widze nowy Olympus spisuje sie znakomicie.Czytalem sporo pozytywnych opinii na jego temat.Tutaj w nocy spisal sie bardzo dobrze(w moim starszym Olympusie e-420 to mi przeszkadzalo-kiepsko sobie radzil z ISO wiekszymi niz 400,no i obiektywy do systemu 4/3 byly bardzo drogie).
Pozdrawiam i zycze milej niedzieli

like this shot, it is such a rich combination of colours and has a retro feel about it. Almost pop-arty in atmosphere with strong lines and immaculate detail it would look superb framed and hanging on an Italian Deli wall in New York. Powerful imagery!
Regards - Brian.

A good upward pov with perfect sharpness. Not easy to do in nocturnal shots. I like the vivid colours and their saturation and warm cold color contrasts. The green is especially eye-catching and unusual. Have a great Sunday!
carlo62 (50101) 2013-04-14 3:45
molto spesso le cose più banali neanche le vediamo, ce ne accorgiamo quando siamo in terra straniera, perchè tutto è novità, curiosità.
Il risultato che hao ottenuto è molto bello, i neon creano tante sfumature di colore.
Direi che la prova della nuova fotocamera è decisamente positiva.
SnapRJW (31629) 2013-04-14 3:56
Fabulous vibrant colours here Gosia. Your upward POV adds a drama to the shot and I am very impressed by the haloes of light around the letters. Looks like you have mastered your new camera very well. Warm regards Rosemary

Hi Gosia - this is a really outstanding shot! The perspective works beautifully, and you've lined up the sign vertically to create a nice sense of height... the light is gorgeous! Overexposed in exactly the right way for this, with the glow from the neon casting about in every direction. The shot looks really electric. I love the green/yellow glow on the building facade. Really great work and a nice workout for the new camera! Hope you enjoyed Rome - looking forward to more.
Sergiom (81809) 2013-04-14 5:50
Une très belle composition. La construction de l'image est impeccable. La contre plongée est impressionnante ainsi que la gestion de la lumière avec ces très beaux reflets sur la pierre.
Noel_Byrne (31668) 2013-04-14 6:33
The luminosity off the neon is amazing, I would image you an see this sign from space! Even the walls that it is attached to are glowing like radiation. Beautiful shot. I wonder how many people pass under this image every day and never see it like this :)
All the best

Hi! Not an usual subject here on TE, but só welcome! I love the colors, the exposure, the vertical format, chosen pov and composition! Cheers, Neyvan
ktanska (28034) 2013-04-14 8:12
The way those ad lights illuminate the wall looks great. Impressive colourful night time view. Makes me wonder how a Pizzeria is a such a big thing over there!
Robert1969 (7160) 2013-04-14 9:01
Congratulations with your new camera. A lots of
people don't know how nice the system-camera's
are: they are fast and very good and easy to
handle (what you see, is what you get). One
point: you must buy a second battery.
Picture is nice colorful, no noice, the lower
point of view makes the picture exciting, great
composition and light management.
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-04-14 9:37
Beautiful capture of this neon sign! I like the colors against the darkening sky. Good pov and dof with nice details. Very well done, tfs.
cornejo (43545) 2013-04-14 9:39

Sorry I had not seen this pretty picture this morning, luckily I still have a smile. Original framing on this trattoria with a beautiful light. Well done!
Have a nice evening my neighbor.
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2013-04-14 10:30
not easy to control this kind of light.

Amazing presentation of that neon,The colors are fantastic.The sharpness is perfect in spite of the use of a low speed.Very well done.
Have a good week.
willperrett (11084) 2013-04-15 0:27
Great vibrant colours, and an effective, simple compositions. I can forgive the Romans having a pizzeria: in England it tends to mean cheap fast food! Good work.
wolf38 (31296) 2013-04-15 23:13
Hello Gosia. Neon signs are wonderful, because their color, form and light are fascinating. What the modern cities would be without this colorful signage? The multi-colored photo I really like.
Best rgds, Wolfgang
jhm (154564) 2013-04-16 4:43
This is real a nice advertisement for these Pizzeria.
I like the different lights colours on the façade.
Colours and sharpness be pleasant.
Wonderful composition, lovely presentation, TFS.
bona (13737) 2013-04-16 8:07
to me nice combination: pizza and photography! Love both. :)
Nice capture of the neon sign of the Pizzaria. This place have a nice pizza?
In NY I ate many delicious pizzas.
Lovely colors and it is very sharp and have no noise! I think the new camera works very well.
Graal (103032) 2013-04-16 9:10
fajnie to wyszlo przy tak rozjechanym swietle. Ciekawy nabytek, Olympus z jasniutkim Panasonikiem a nie Zuiko. Drogie to mikro cacko. Ladny pionowy kadr i koncowy rezultat.
rychem (37405) 2013-04-16 10:55
Oglądam Twoje zdjęcie i rośnie mi apetyt na pizzę i na Rzym, podejrzewam, że zjadłaś bardzo smacznie. Dobre zdjęcie z dobrą ekspozycją
rbassin (23209) 2013-04-16 11:18
une très belle et intéressante photo en contre plongée, de plus les lumières sont dynamiques et offrent un bon contraste avec le ciel sombre.
Bravo et belle soirée
daddo (26900) 2013-04-16 16:54
Ciao Gosia. Stunning combination of colours. Excellent vertical format and matching POV.An inviting sign.Best wishes. Klaudio.
macjake (69173) 2013-04-16 19:11
It almost hurts my eyes!
the yellow light really comes across strongly as a green color!
well done with the handheld shot.
I'm very interested to see what you have to show us from Rome!! Can't wait :)

Próbowa³em i ja pizzy u¼róde³, to znaczy we Wloszech. Nie ma porównania z tymi kluchami jakie czêsto u nas podaj±. Piêknie uchwycony neon. Wspania³a kolorystyczny kompozycja.
jemaflor (98771) 2013-04-17 9:56
Nice light capture, good pov and management with this angle and the vertical presentation, tfs.

Ciao Gosia, I like pozza, fashinating nocturne shoot, fantastic light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
jusninasirun (17162) 2013-04-17 17:31
The rendered tone, colors and details are just amazing. Fine blue hour framing with well metered exposure in the shot.
Thanks and kind regards.
tatadalou (7459) 2013-04-18 20:23
Not so easy to manage artificial light of neons buy here, it's successful. I like how the yellow-green tones of the neon enlightents the house. The pipe in the foreground is a little bit disturbing but seems difficult to avoid without losing quality in framing.
jcpix (13930) 2013-04-20 15:13
Perfect example of taking the "every day" scenery and turning into a brilliant image! I absolutely love the exposure on this one which creates a slight glow around each of the neon letters, adding another special effect to the already vibrant signage. The perspective and composition are also fantastic, you've done a excellent job in putting together a real treat for the eyes! Thanks for the making something seemingly common into a beautiful photograph. :) Have a wonderful weekend.
All the best,
Cricri (120537) 2013-04-20 23:04
Quel ambiance de couleurs dans ce cadrage bien réaliser en plus a l'heure bleu, bon format et prise excellente des lumières, superbe
ikeharel (72903) 2013-04-21 3:27
Neon lights beautifully collected, Gosia.
No excessive glare, fine outlines and mingling tones upon: green, yellow contrast blue, brown and the dark sky.
delpeoples (58600) 2013-04-22 3:51
I could not think of a better place than Rome to try out your new camera. And what a shot! The colours, exposure and sharpness are stunning. You have handled the controls on the camera like you've had it always. Excellent vertical frame and a very artistic, almost retro shot, that makes me think of the 1950s.
Nard (6972) 2013-04-24 5:30
I like this king of street picture. Perfect POV and framing, wonderful light and colors, very creative
abmdsudi (55168) 2013-04-26 1:27
Lovely special ambience and the 'coolness' of colour that you have found here and your new cam did a splendid job with flying colours! This really does look cozy, so homey, very intriguing set up, the pov and It makes me want to look at every detail. The neon light draws the eyes in as you turn an everyday street scene into something really special of the essence of the street culture. Excellent clarity and the effect you have captured here with so many varying tones in a well controlled exposure. This picture definately adds lot of interest. Simply delicious to view, Well done,
