    Re: night on the danube

    Maybe I have a thing for bridges, but I think this is a good image.
    You certainly did an excellent job on the technical side.

    I think bridges lend themselves to good composition, there are a lot of elements to them, line, repetition and even a little symmetry too.

    My only issue with the image is the hot spot from the on the top of the closest support.

    I look forward to seeing more from you.

    Hello Fotoscheu,

    This is a nice bridge for sure. Your exposure is remarkable. There are so much details on the bridges; the textures and the lights makes it very lively. The background is somewhat boring but I guess that this is a good thing as it doesnt mess up with your main subject.

    Regards

    Seb

    A great looking bridge. Good point of view and composition. the hotspots on the tops of the structures do not bother me as much as that i notice there is no black in the image. At least it appears that way to me. Abit washed looking. But, other than that nit, a great shot.

    I thought that looked familiar


    I decided to take the photo from the opposite side of the bridge as to include the Palace in the background. I wish I could combine the two photos I like how your photo has allowed for the light to paint the river below it adds an extra quality that mine does not have.

    Budapest was one of my favorite places in my travels throughout Europe. I especially loved the bathhouse we went to in the main park. Total relaxation!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Re: night on the danube

    There's nothing like a black and white night exposures for sharp photos, and this one proves it. Was it digital? Nice contrast, respectable composition. If I could add any suggestions, I would just say that it seems a bit 'lonely', maybe cause there's no people evident and also maybe because of the big black area on the top left (understandable). Maybe it there was a boat or two in the water with people on the decks.... Ahhhh. Anyways, very nicely done.

    The second picture is absolutely amazing. The angle is well done, that's one thing I noticed right away.
    The only problem about it is that the sky would look better if there were a few stars, though, I guess you couldnt expose it too much therefor no stars.

    Good job
