It is many years since I visited Milan, but who can forget the magnificent Gothic cathedral. Your close-up shot shows the wonderful sculpture work to great effect under a pleasing soft light. Very good clarity.

I look to your workshop or second picture, here we see a lot details the other picture gives a generally view about these wonderful church.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant for look at.
Very well composed and good captured.
Nice done, TFS.

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the turrets of the Duamo of Milano. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Thanks dear Ike.
I see lace in stone spears, all converging towards The Above over radious skies and depicted with fine details!

Very beautiful composition that shows these artistic pinnacles of the cathedral of Milan, is an elaborate work of pure Gothic style and in this beautiful image we see on a bright day, so sharp and great color. Beautiful and original work.
Have a good late afternoon.

Again a picture of a part of a well known building of which we ususally get to see the complete view and again I'm surprised about the beautiful details of which we're not aware.
There are so many sculptures carved on each turret and the biggest of all are standing on the tops.
Thanks for showing us this part of the cathedral in detail.
Best regards, Paul

Ciao caro amico!
Curiously, this wonderful example of Italian Gothic architecture is not very represented in TE, probably in Milan there are a few members. Fortunately there are good photographers like you that capture this beautiful Cathedral that is the symbol of the city. Very beautiful and interesting your WSthat shows us all the majesty of this church. Excellent work, bravo!
Ciao, have a nice Wednesday!

Milan Cathedral is one of the finest buildings in the world. And its roof is a fantastic sight. These towers are beautiful. Excellent composition.
ערב טוב. קתדרלת מילאנו היא אחד המבנים היפים ביותר בעולם. וגם הגג שלו היא מחזה פנטסטי. מגדלים אלה יפים. הרכב מעולה. שלך.

I like this close up shot of this Gothic architecture. The image looks very sharp and beautiful under the blue sky. The light is just perfect.
delpeoples (59440) 2011-08-09 21:28
Now this really is spectacular. You have again chosen a close-up (as in the one of the Tower of Pisa) which highlights the amazing details. Gothic is my favourite architectural style, and in my humble opinion, there is no bettr example of it than the Duomo di Milano. Excellent job, have a good day.
emka (104268) 2011-08-09 23:39
Nice lose up of the turrets, indeed amazing figueres on them. excellent view in the background of the blue sky. Excellent crop. Fine photo.

guglie con i loro splendidi ricami che si alzano verso l'azzurro del cielo.
Buona scelta compositiva supportata da bel taglio,
sacimar (27787) 2011-08-10 2:56
this is an impressive building, I like the detail you captured with these towers, the statues on the top are eye-catching,

A different way of showing us the Duomo, capturing their beautiful slender tower with a magnificent architecture.
Excellent perspective and detail.
dip (23890) 2011-08-11 1:33
amazing architectural details of the Duomo di Milano,
very good clarity and sharpness,well done!
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-08-11 2:24
It is a very dramatic closeup of the Duomo. The original framing is very effective. It has been so many years since I saw the Duomo last time. Clarity and the composition of the photo is also very nicely executed. You do have an eye for a fine photography. I love all the fine details you have captured. With my compliments, Ike
Very best regards,
faletiz (10377) 2011-08-11 3:32
here the spires of the Cathedral! Beautiful framing with the background of a nice sky, so rare in Milan. But you forgot the Madonnina!!! What a pity not to be met when you come here!
Have a nice day
eldancer1 (36343) 2011-08-11 9:52
Awesome capture of those turrets against the blue sky! Details are sharp and crisp. I like your pov. Well done, tfs.
BluSimo (9392) 2011-08-11 16:42
to show us the dome using only some details of the "pinnacoli" is a beautiful idea. also the sky has helped in this, the clouds are always an optimal background for the architectures. i like the final result nearly abstract.
jmdias (67247) 2011-08-14 3:15
these small towers are very unusual and I never saw something like this in other church. nice view of these details, nice framing and sharpness. we can enjoy the beauty of the architecture and its addornments here. TFS.

une idée originale de par ton cadrage de nous montrer ces flèches de cette superbe cathédrale (vue de face avec ton ws) une architecture remarquable , un nid d'aiguilles ou de dentelle à certains endroit, enfin un charme auquel on ne peut résister
krzychu30 (15512) 2011-08-22 3:04
you had very good idea to capture it in this way.I like such detail shots,which focus on certain detail of building.The picture has outstanding sharpness and very good lighing.All of these beautiful sculptures and ornamentations are perfectly visible.Unfortunately,when I was there few years ago,the whole facade was renovated,so we took pictures motly in the interior of this beautiful cathedral.
Have a nice day
worldcitizen (9184) 2011-08-26 15:19
I love this Duomo. I remember walking on the roof during my visit many years ago. I like that you chose to show a view of the turrets only, with a wonderful blue sky behind them. The details are wonderful. It is great when buildings are not only functional, but when they also double as works of art.
maloutim (9639) 2011-09-04 10:11
I remember going to Milan in 1983 ! And I had the same impression as you about the fine stone lace covering the whole of this formidable cathedral !
So, when you take a general view of the building, you can't possibly distinguish the details of the sculptures.
You did quite well in photographing this small part of the roof, in order to show us some of the beautiful, sharp details.
The POV makes me want to give my own title to the picture : "The way to Heaven".
maria-v1981 (10932) 2012-09-12 5:48
Going up to Duomo can someone understand the grandeur of the temple. The details are fascinating and patterns, shapes and statues simply impressive. I was there in 2009 for Easter and i had a great time.
Enjoy the day,

Un cadrage bien penser sur le haut de la cathédrale, toute en finesse dans les détails, bien ressorti sur le fond bleu et la luminosité
Belle complémentaire en WS
ChrisJ (117199) 2016-09-09 15:03
I am hoping to pass through Milan on the way to Slovenia. Nice repetition of the spires and their dark tones add a graphic element against the lighter sky. Tfs!
