About Vidyasagar Setu:-
Vidyasagar Setu (Bengali: বিদ্যাসাগর সেতু Bidyasagôr Setu), also known as the Second Hooghly Bridge (Bengali: দ্বিতীয় হুগলী সেতু Dbitiyô Hugli Setu), is a toll bridge over the Hooghly River in West Bengal, India, linking the cities of Kolkata (previously known as Calcutta) and Howrah.
With a total length of 823 metres (2,700 ft), Vidyasagar Setu is the longest cable–stayed bridge in India and one of the longest in Asia. It was the second bridge to be built across the Hooghly River; the first, the Howrah Bridge (also known as Rabindra Setu) 3.7 kilometres (2.3 mi) to the north, was completed in 1943. Named after the educationist reformer Pandit Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, it cost Indian Rupees 3.88 billion to build.
Construction began on 3 July 1979, and the bridge was commissioned on 10 October 1992 by the Hooghly River Bridge Commission. The project was a joint effort between the public and private sectors, under the control of the Hooghly River Bridge Commissioners. The bridge is used by around 30,000 vehicles daily, considerably less than the bridge's capacity of 85,000.

anche questa seconda fotografia del fiume appare notevole sia per il soggetto che per gestione molto buona della luce alla quale si unisce una composizione eccellente.
Bella anche la contrapposizione di colori.
Ciao e buona giornata

your exposure settings have worked very well with the twinkling lights of the bridge making an attractive curve against the blue hour sky.
A nicely balanced and interesting composition.
Best wishes Les.
