Northern Italy viewed with 8mm Fisheye

Hi all
Visiting last summer Northern Italy, I was able to experiment my Samyang 8mm Fisheye lens. Here are different several views of quite famous places, plus, few "traditional" photos.

Let's start in Milan:
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is the oldest shopping mall in Italy, located at the very heart of Milan. It was build ~150 years ago, and accommodates many luxurious shops. the arcade is roofed so it is possible to stroll there all year long.

Next, moving to Riva: a small town, located at the north point of Lake Garda, Center of town:

Next photo was taken by a "regular" lens, however, it reflects the centuries old beauty of Venice: A view to the The Grand Canal from Rialto bridge

In my next post, I'll describe the visit to the green Parco Giardino Sigurta in Valeggio sul Mincio. Here is an appetizer:
