Milan, Italy is an interesting place to visit. We all know Milan as a fashion capital of the world. While that may be true, the city is just ok. Milan is a very industrial location. Some of the sights you can see are the Galleria (for some great expensive shopping) in the picture above, the Duomo is right next to the Galleria, and while in Milan you can take a tour to go see the Last Supper painting. Not tons to do in Milan. I’d say it is a stop over to experience once.
Although near the Galleria there is a closed street with shops and restaurants located on both sides. It is wonderful to sit outside on the street while eating dinner and watch the people walk by. Such interesting fashion to see. And yes, while eating you do see many very tall and too thin models floating around. There is one of my favorite Italian restaurnts near the Duomo/Galleria that has the best pizza I have ever had! I always order 2 pies! That fresh mozerella is out of this world! I wonder if the can Fed Ex me another pie??
Only 30 mins train ride north of Milan is Lake Como. Lake Como is the famous realxing place of George Clooney and Brad Pitt. I hear it is wonderful!
The shot above was taken with 5 exposures, amazingly hand held and post processed in Photomatix. The HDR brings out some of the great colors of the Galleria. On this blog and my personal website…the most searched/viewed items seem to be my HDR shots. This style is growing fast! I will work on an HDR tutorial in the next week or so and post it here. This will be for those that are new to HDR, those that know about HDR and would like to learn more or if you know how to do it currently – to see what settings I use for Photomatix. Enjoy!
