Budapest is the capital and the largest city of Hungary, and one of the largest cities in the European Union. It is the country's principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial, and transportation centre, sometimes described as the primate city of Hungary. In 2011, according to the census, Budapest had 1.74 million inhabitants, down from its 1989 peak of 2.1 million due to suburbanization. The Budapest Metropolitan Area is home to 3.3 million people. The city covers an area of 525 square kilometres within the city limits. Budapest became a single city occupying both banks of the river Danube with a unification on 17 November 1873 of west-bank Buda and Óbuda with east-bank Pest.
The Megyeri Bridge, previously known as the Northern M0 Danube bridge, is a cable-stayed bridge that spans the River Danube between Buda and Pest, respectively the west and east sides of Budapest, the capital of Hungary. It is an important section of the M0 ringroad around Budapest.
The bridge cost 63 billion forints (approx. US$ 300M) to build, and was officially opened on September 30, 2008 however, the National Transport Authority of Hungary has only issued temporary permits because of disagreement among suburban cities surrounding the bridge. A naming poll to determine the new name of the recently built bridge caused controversy and received media attention when American comedians Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart won.

Ciekawy strzal z auta. Fajna konstrukcja mostu, troche przypomina styl piramid Majow. Czy myto jest tak duze, ze takie pustki na tej przeprawie?

A fine shot of this tall, imposing bridge.
You have created a super sense of perspective and a good sense of scale.
There is an exciting, abstract pattern to the shot.
Have a great day,

A great perspective on this bridge designed to create a wonderful long perspective. I like the inclusion of the car just about to disappear over the central hump, also the cool blue tones. Clarity is excellent making for some superb graphism.

une image forte, et bien cadrée dans ce format vertical; bon POV avec une superbe vision sur ce pont.

The bridge is very elegant and you have taken a good photo which captures the superb lines of the construction very well. Did you take this sharp and perfect photo from inside a car, or did you risk your life by standing in the middle of the street? I love the steely grey tones of the bridge and the fine tones of blue and white of the background.

What a beautiful shot, you made this bridge and architectural wonder, it reminds me of the Burj Al Arab for some reason and looks more like a building that the mechanism for a cable stayed bridge. The light and colors are perfect, and create a really unique mood. Really nicely done.

Cześć Krzysiu, Fajny most, świetna perspektywa i głębia. Ty wróciłeś z majówki, ja swoją zaczynam i siedzę w Polskim Busie (z WiFi:)). Dziś wieczorem też bedę nad Dunajem.
Uściski i miłego weekendu

Widze ze odwiedziles Wegry i przywiozles wspaniale zdjecia. A wiec Budapeszt otrzymal bardzo ladny wiszacy most przez Dunaj. Wyglada na to ze zdjecie robiles z samochodu. Ciekawa nowoczesna architektura.
Zdjecie znakomicie prezentuje sie w pionowym ujeciu ukazujac w pelni piekno jego architektury. Swietna jakosc fotki.

A delightful shot you have done a remarkable job with fantastic details of the huge bridge adding lots of vigour with good graphic quality. A fine exposure, it's sharp with that vehicle is an icing on the sweet roll to finish off the compo and adding an excellent scale as well. Such a wonderful capture! Congrats.

Great perspective of this modern bridge, the car disappears down the slope of the road, the magnificent graphics of these pyramidal supports, as novel design, streetlights, also very consistent with the set.
Very well balanced lighting and very good sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Wish you a very nice week.

Ciekawa nowoczesna konstrukcja. Fajnie pokazales jej design oraz skale. Duza saturacja niebieskich tonow dobrze komponuje się z głównym tematem.
