I don't think the city of Budapest needs an introduction. The capital of Hungary, straddling the Danube river, is one of the most beautiful European cities, owing much of its elegance to its Habsburg Austro-Hungarian architectural heritage.
The photo was taken during a contemplative walk on the river bank, on a chilly November evening. No tripod, though I did find a solid surface on which to place the camera.

Classic - perfectly illustrated.
Reflections on the water run away.
Perfectly matched exposure.

spot on exposure needed and accomplished on this one even the street lights have the star look.
The view is beautiful and romantic with the lights reflected on the Danube's surface and the bridge and palace with all the lights enhancing their beauty.
Nice shot indeed!

Beautifully done! It really is romantic and a gorgeous night shot of a very lovely view you are right! The Architecture is stunning, and the buildings are beautifully lit. First class, warm regards,

The way you are presenting lovely Budapest makes it look very royal and prestigious.
I like the angle and the way both structures are juxtaposed from one another. Deep gold reflection on the Danube through dark night help to fill the frame nicely, as the Buda castle stretch impressively from one border to another.
Rich tones, good angle, seductive image.
Have a nice one!

Yes, it is. A great romantic city shot with great exposure and fine lights. Also the dark blue of the sky behind the architecture is superb. Just the right timing. Congratulations.
