[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A walk through Milan's historical centre will take you to one of the most famous architectural structures of Europe: the «Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II» with which I close one chapter in my series recently “made in Italy”.

«Galeria Vittorio Emanuele II» is one of the most beautiful covered galleries in Europe. Began in 1865, and it was the first of it's kind to make use of an iron and glass structure.

But this architectonic beauty has a strong drama associated: in 1867, two days before King Vittorio Emanuele led the opening ceremony, Giuseppe Mengoni, the architect, fell to his death from the heights of the glass dome while scrutinizing decorative details.
Damned and bloody fate.

Welcome Jose,
good architectural composition. I like the use of natural "stained glass effect" in your work.

Ciao Jose

Belíssimo visual
eu estou pasmado e encantado com o visual
desta galeria e estrutura desta arquitetura.
A nave central é fabulosa! Eu poderia arriscar
num efeito de espelho, mas a redoma central não diz isso.
a luz natural pelos vidros da um belo efeito
dentro da galeria.
Ai, me diga, esta foto voce deitou no chão para estar tão central! Ahahah!....... (brincadeirinha)
Parabens, de muito bom gosto!

Hi Jose, I like this type of shot and your cropping is excellent, as it is easy to cut a corner to make it asymetrical. The colours are natural and good to see. I'd like to visit Tuscany and Milan one day. TFS. Murray.

Hi Jose,
What a fascinating image.
As always, the technicals are perfect, good exposure, great details in highlights and shadow, and great balance and control over contrast. Sharp and crisp image with beautiful colours.
As for the architecture itself, absolutly divine. Great image.
