The Passerelle Debilly is an arch bridge situated in Paris bestriding the Seine. It is a footbridge that connects the quai de New York to the quai Branly, close to the Eiffel Tower.
In order to accommodate visitor traffic to the 1900 World's Fair across the Seine, the General Commissioner of the Exposition, Alfred Picard, approved the construction of a provisional footbridge opposite the Avenue Albert de Mun, to join the Army and Navy Halls to the exhibit recreating old Paris. Its architect, Jean Résal, also designed the Pont Alexandre III and the Viaduc d'Austerlitz. Source: Wikipedia

l'icona parigina fotografata con originalità e maestria.
Eccellente l'esposizione e originale la composizione, prevalgono le strutture metalliche come se messe a confronto, due architetture che hanno dato vita all'epoca moderna, innovative e geniali.

Both these structures where supposed to be temporary and Eiffel tower became symbol of Paris! (Debilly passerelle is much less famous of course!)
You have excellent clarity and sharpness without tripod! The relatively high ISO is well handled with no obvious noise.
Regards (from Paris!)

Excellente photo nocturne associant la tour Eiffel et la passerelle. Exposition impeccable et jolies couleurs.
snunney (81693) 2014-06-01 1:55
A perfectly executed night time composition. Cleverly composed and ideally exposed. The graphical lines of the bridge mirror those of the Eiffel Tower. Very good colours and clarity. You have a good steady hand.
kato (11630) 2014-06-01 3:20
You're capturing well this cityscape by a good angle and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the Truss bridge on the Seine and Eiffel Tower in blue hour. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination.
delpeoples (52897) 2014-06-01 3:56
Witaj dear Gosia
I have never seen the wonderful icon from this angle before. The nocturnal / Blue HOur shot is exquisite and everything is perfectly sharp and well exposed. Stunning sharpness on the Tower and the graphism and perspective of the bridge adds another very compelling element.
Thanks for sharing, warmest wishes

Une image bien composée avec cette passerelle et la Tour Eiffel décalée et teintée d'or par cet éclairage artificiel.L'ensemble ressort bient devant ce ciel bleu nuit.

Witaj Gosia, very good view of this interesting and beautiful night scene of everyday life, with the iconic tower in the background, very well captured with a great pov in this great and beautiful photography. Interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, light and color. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
trevormoffiet (3034) 2014-06-01 5:15
Lovely light and colours. The image has a nice balance of graphics and colour while showing us the bridge and the Eiffel Tower together. Excellent clarity and sharpness given that the camera was hand held at 1/5 sec exposure.
Noel_Byrne (22691) 2014-06-01 7:36
It is never easy to create a new image of an icon like this, but you have succeeded so well here. The tower places perfectly on thirds with its sharp points of light looks fantastic of course, and a brilliant idea to add depth and differentiation to the scene by placing the bridge this way. Very nicely considered picture and result.
Thanks as always
photoray (11373) 2014-06-01 7:43
Attractive Paris night view with the silver lighting on the pedestrian arched bridge and the golden lit Eifel Tower.
In California we rarely design foot bridges this wide, perhaps to avoid our Wackos from driving their cars across!?
Thanks for sharing,

Piekny kadr znalazlas podczas paryskich wedrowek. Kiedys ten sam most z wieza uwiecznilem z poziomu wody, ale taki kadr wydaje sie duzo ciekawszy.
Dobra jakosc pracy, odpowiednia godzina czyli wszystko w najlepszej jakosci.

Félicitations pour cette très belle réalisation et ce choix de cadrage très original depuis la passerelle.
La réussite est parfaite.
La Tour Eiffel illuminée ressort à merveille.

a glorious blue hour shot this. An immaculate execution with so much amazing detail and a sense of the night time atmosphere of this iconic city.
Have a good week - B.
claudeD (31703) 2014-06-02 7:22
very fine night picture from Paris showing this very well known view. Very good light managment and excellnet sharpness. Very good contributiont to TE.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
PaulVDV (21585) 2014-06-02 11:19
It appears to be still possible to take an original picture of the Eiffel Tower. Never before I've seen a view from this POV.
Wonderful blue hour shot with perfect sharpness and an attractive composition and colour combinations.
Best regards, Paul
holmertz (39427) 2014-06-02 11:43
I like how you left the Eiffel tower in the background and allowed us to enjoy the elegant curve of the bridge as the main feature. The tower almost steals the show anyway, but a straightforward photo of it would have been rather boring. Now all the architectural elements play joufully together. The light is great too.
Greetings from Poznan,
Giustiniani (3290) 2014-06-02 14:06
une vue de la Tour Eiffel inhabituelle. Un bon choix du point de vue et un excellent cadrage, de superbes couleur et une excellente qualité d'image. Une belle capture.
dkmurphys (48078) 2014-06-03 1:02
Original POV, never seen the tower from this side. Superb management of light, well taken.
PS. I'm ok, just very very busy...
Have a nice day!
adramad (36869) 2014-06-03 6:41
Esplendida esta imagen nocturna, con la torre luciendo una preciosa iluminacion dorada, el puente en primer plano da un bonito contraste y grafismo a la composicion.Hi Gosia.
Splendid this nighttime image, with the tower wearing a beautiful golden lighting, the bridge in the foreground gives a nice contrast to the composition and graphics.
A superb range of night color.
Good management of the brightness and sharpness.
Splendid image. My compliments.
Have a happy day.
SnapRJW (30665) 2014-06-03 7:42
Hello Gosia - This is a pretty impressive shot not least because you have captured the piercing pin-pricks of light as they shine out from the Eiffel Tower.
Nicely manage, a special shot.
patpatch (1515) 2014-06-03 9:42
That's a very good picture of Paris at night.I like the composition with the Effel tower like an arrow contrasting with the curved lines on the brige .
The management of he light is realy excellent.The yellow and white lights are very nice in contrast with the dark blue sky.
chrislo (4151) 2014-06-03 13:39
You really had the eye for this one ! Amazing viewpoint and perspective of this so many times photographed monument. Congratulations for finding an unusual and original way to shoot the Eiffel tower and realize this superb composition. Even the beautifully lit iron bridge could not steal the show from this Old Lady ! A great blue hour shot with excellent light management.
SWEETFREEDOM (22196) 2014-06-04 0:23
great exposure even without a tripod, very good colors and details.
emka (76255) 2014-06-04 14:35
Witaj Gosia, Bardzo efektownie wyglada ten most. bardzo oryginalna kompozycja z wieżą Eiffla w tle. Super błękitnogodzinne zdjecie. Pozdrawiam

beautiful blue hour and very beautiful panoramic composition. wonderful colors and splendid light, great sharpness.
Perfectly well done. my friend
All the best and have a great WE.
annjackman (18949) 2014-06-07 6:12
You have bought two symbols of Paris together in a super night time shot. The colours and sharpness are first class. I love the moody shades of blue and purple in the sky with the golden light of the tower.
Kind Regards, Ann
CLODO (29914) 2014-06-08 6:03
a well prepared shot with the contrasting shapes of the white bridge and the illuminated "old lady" at the blue hour.
I like specially the light coming from the top of the Eiffel tower.
Gigidusud (14609) 2014-06-08 14:33
Wow! Splendid capture of the Eiffel Tower at blue hour. Excellent POV and great light management. Beautiful contrast of silver and gold metal too. Well done!
nikkitta (14308) 2014-06-09 14:20
Never imagine such light contrast at the blue hour, alway be there at day after visiting the Branly Museum
Like your creative composition dating both from 1900 World's Fair and having quite diferents lights golden and silver
Exellent light management without tripod
Regards and congrats
jemaflor (82888) 2014-06-11 23:23
A night shot well managed, the light is perfectly captured, interesting composition with two focal points, good idea for this composition with the bridge in the Fg.
Didi (56001) 2014-06-15 17:15
I was in south France in september
Original point of view from the bridge
I note a very good lights control in the blue hour
tyro (19728) 2014-06-16 9:45
You have written a very interesting and informative note and given us a stunning photograph with which to illustrate it.
Your timing of this shot was perfect as there is just the perfect combination of natural and artificial light. Your composition is delightful too with the iconic Eiffel Tower perfectly placed in the frame, the strong lines of the curvature of the structure of the bridge well placed, and a fine "lead in" from the fence appearing from bottom right.
Glorious light and lovely vibrant colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness, especially when viewed at its full size of 1200 pixels wide.
macjake (54830) 2014-06-19 11:32
another fine shot from Paris.
I don't think i've ever seen this view or compo of the footbridge.
love seeing the ray of light streaming from the tower.
cool purple tones all over the scene.
fun shot, well composed.
ikeharel (55200) 2014-06-20 12:03
Good evening Gosia,
Excelent light and clarity managed, the Paris monuments appering vivid and shining on the night scene.
Good display of multi-tones, green and blue yellow/gold and white illuminated iron structure - no an easy task to do at night shots.
Fine photojob, my cong.s'.
Angshu (55255) 2014-06-24 21:22
I have never been to this bridge, but this is a fine way to show the famous landmark in an entirely novel way. Hats off for the effort!
Superb picture with the crispness of it and the contrast between the gold and the silver creating a fine composition. Excellent work!
halikarnas (6625) 2014-07-01 3:36
Çok değişik açıdan görüntü.
Tabii harika olmuş.

Beautiful shot! The pov and exposure are very good and the moment is perfect, with the sky still blue. I like the light coming from the tower. Very well done!

Jestem pod wielkim wrażeniem Twojej galerii. Piękne kompozycje, intensywne barwy, niewiarygodnie ostre zdjęcia. Trudno wybrać coś do skomentowania. Za duży wybór ;).
Rewelacyjnie uchwycony promień na szczycie wieży. Całość pięknie gra...
