The Howrah Bridge has been illuminated adding to the beauty of this architectural of the City of Joy - Kolkata.
Howrah Bridge, also known as the Rabindra Setu, is a bridge over the Hoogli River in West Bengal, India. It is so named as it links the city of Howrah, near Howrah Station, to its twin city of Kolkata (Calcutta). The bridge is said to be the busiest in the world.The bridge was built between 1937 and 1943 to replace a bridge from 1874, and is said to be the busiest bridge in the world. It is 97 metres high and 705 metres long. It is a cantilever truss bridge, constructed entirely by riveting, without nuts or bolts. It is currently used as a road bridge, but previously had a tram route as well. The bridge also has sister bridges over the river at different points, namely the Vidyasagar Setu and the Vivekananda Setu. (Wikipedia)

After so many of your beautiful and innovative shots, I think this one is not that great, may be ordinary. The main problem with it is that the lighting is not well captured due to some reasons-may be the scattered lights from surroundings, the long exposure and the fact that it is taken from a boat. Even you use a tripod on the boat, then also it is difficult to get good result.

My complements for posting this nice night shot of howrah Bridge which I have never seen before.I do see some grains perhaps you could apply noiseware

I really appreciate you for posting this snap inspite of the fact that it may not be your best efforts.There is problem of grains at the top part.Still it is something that we dont see often enough in a frame and you have exactly done that.

It is for the first time I am seeing Howrah bridge all decked up in light. Excellent POV from the middle of the river. As others have already mentioned, noise is definitely a problem here. I have done a WS. Hope you like it.

fresh and hot! Nice quick post Anjan! We had a trip on the Ganga yesterday, which I had to miss out :(

I've never seen The bridge with such lights...The POV is excellent & so are the reflections. Sabyasachi's WS enhances the photo a great deal..but ideally I would have liked a subject like a ship to have some more impact

Good work Anjan.
I missed the shot somehow :(
This from a boat is a superb take.
Have you noticed the homeless birds on the bridge while snapping?

U hav got mixed response here and I hav the same feelin about this. Too much grains, too dark, little subject matter aprt from bridge. For someone else I ud hav given a full smiley, but for a semi-pro (freelancer) as u call it, I can only give half.

This is really beautiful. Illumination is superb.

Nice take.Reflection adds life in it.I dont know why the grains come , may be due to post processing. Anyway good job.
