The Arch of Hadrian is a monumental gateway resembling – in some respects – a Roman triumphal arch. It spanned an ancient road from the center of Athens to the complex of structures on the eastern side of the city that included the Temple of Olympian Zeus. The arch is located 325m southeast of the Acropolis. It has been proposed that the arch was built to celebrate the adventus (arrival) of the Roman Emperor Hadrian and to honor him for his many benefactions to the city, on the occasion of the dedication of the nearby temple complex in 131 or 132 AD.

Zestawienie antycznych ruin z tetniacym zyciem miastem wyszlo naprawde niesamowicie.
Dlugi czas ekspozycji stworzyl piekny efekt.
Dokladnie,to jest to co lubie najbardziej!

Nice nocturnal capture of this antique gate in Athens.
Long exposure time was a good choice.
Interesting notes as well.
TFS and have a nice weekend

night photography is still in the experimental stage for me. When I see superb shots like this I wonder if I will ever get to this level of technique. The detailing and magical lights here are just wonderful. Inspiring imagery!
Have a great weekend - B.

I love these night shots. The arch has been nicely exposed and stands out superbly against the dark sky. The 'stars' created by the street lights is another particularly attractive aspect of this image for me.

bardzo udana praca z uzyciem dlugiego czasu. Rozmazane swiatla przejezdzajacyh samochodow swietnie sie komponuja z super ostrymi budynkami. Bardzo ladne polaczenie statyki i dynamiki. Kolory i swiatlo bardzo dobrze oddane.

J'aime beaucoup cette longue exposition qui donne de très beaux filés à l'avant plan. J'aime aussi les teintes verdâtres de l'arche sur fond de ciel bleu foncé.

great use of long exposure, giving this beautiful light effect but not reducing the prettyness of the arch you show here.

A very colourful blue hour shot!
The many star-shaped lights give something festive at the picture.
It will probably not have been easy to find the best POV for your shot with the many poles and cables.
Best regards, Paul

sei riuscita a far rientrare nella composizione anche i pali e i fili del tram e non danno fastidio, anzi completano le linee tracciate dalle luci delle auto.
Bel colpo, un'ottima prova, anche originale.

Hello Gosia. There are things that look more beautiful at night than during the day. The photo isein good example. Here's the old and the new side by side to admire. Well seen and presented.

wow, what a catch! 22sec exposer creat a nice result here. The light-curves, made by those moving cars created a nice effect in foreground. Where as by f/16 you got a superb depth. Excellent night capture. Tfs.

Very nice night photo. The Hadrian Arch is in superb light. The light motion lines add nice hue to the scene.

Bonjour, chère Gosia,
Une image hivernale très réussie avec ce cadrage réalisé avec soin et méthode.
L'ancienne porte ressort merveilleusement à travers cette composition.

sei diventata un'esperta delle foto all'ora blu e di notte.
Non ne sbagli una e tutte sono perfette per gestione della luce, colori e nitidezza.
In questa la scelta della lunga esposizione e del diaframma molto stretto si è dimostrata vincente perchè hai fatto sparire le auto di passaggio e nello stesso tempo hai trasformato la luce dei lampioni in gradevoli stelline.
Ciao e buona domenica
P.S. Complimenti anche per la tua nuova foto del profilo.

Quite an appreciable image of the Arch of Hadrian.The late evening shot taken with a tripod and with longer exposure and smaller apertures has yielded the desired results I reckon.Brilliant and too good.TFS.
adramad (42015) 2014-01-26 15:38
Very beautiful night composition of Hadrian's Arch, which looks beautiful with night lighting, I like the star effect of streetlights and surprised to see the street so deserted.
Very good management of both the brightness and the sharpness.
The color is great, very well balanced.
Very well done. I love
I wish you a happy start to the week.

nice to see the star bursts in the lightposts, thats the best way to get these shots, using the F16 range.
its also nice to see you using your tripod too! haha
I know you often don't do that.
wicked colors and movement with the car lights, its a fun photo to take. well executed shot all around

Like the light trails of moving vehicles achieved by the long exposure. They have taken the shape of the S shaped road. The arch is standing out perfectly against the night sky. Love the little stars on the lamp posts. Top notch photography. As of now I can only dream of taking shots like this one here :-) Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful display of light management
Horizon paints a very nice mixture of blue and yellow
