I just returned to Florida last night after spending nearly 2 weeks in eastern Europe. The first stop was Budapest, an absolutely beautiful city in Hungary that is divided in two by the Danube River.
This is the world famous Chain Bridge. Construction of the bridge began in 1842 and was completed in 1849. The bridge was destroyed in World War II by the Germans during the siege of Budapest in 1945. Reconstruction of the Chain Bridge began after the war in 1947 and was completed to it's original form in 1949.

A truly superb image. The management of exposure, the composition and PoV all perfect
Stunning indeed and blue hour always an amazing time for striking photos

grande prospettiva e grande controllo delle luci.
Il POV č spettacolare, bello il taglio verticale con il ponte che ci guida verso la cittā.

Amazing shot captured during a blue hour. Perfectly seen and composed view. Excellent execution. Like it:)

I recently posted a shot from this angle, but yours is vastly superior, and in difficult light. I love how Budapest luminates its buildings and bridges, and you capture that well here with a nice long exposure at blue hour. Perfect framing as well.

I love the framing of the picture, the focusing on three beautiful objects, the bridge, the Grasham Palace and the St. Istvan Basilica, but the strong blue tone seem artificial to me.
