Spanning the Danube between Clark Ádám tér (Buda side) and Széchenyi István tér (Pest side), the Chain Bridge (Lánchid) was the first to permanently connect Buda and Pest. There has been a pontoon bridge on the river since the Middle Ages enabling passage from spring to autumn. During winter, the river froze making crossing possible; however, there were times when the weather changed abruptly and people got stuck on one side. In 1820, this happened to Count István Széchenyi, when he had to wait a week to get to his father's funeral. This experience led him to decide that a permanent bridge had to be built. He became a major advocate of the project and founded a society to finance and build the bridge.

Un pov toujours aussi photogénique, bien capturé ici avec le pont et les monuments, belle teinte mais un léger penché.

What a beautiful presentation of this one of the most well known views of Budapest. The key of your work is a light and its warm tones. Like it a lot! Well seen and taken with a perfect sense of depth.

questo ponte mi ricorda un mio viaggio a Buddapest nel corso del quale attraversai piů volte questo ponte con l'auto alla ricerca impossibile di un albergo dove dormire.
Ma al di lŕ di questo episodio devo ammettere che sie molto bravo nel riprendere questa bella cittŕ e din particolare tutta la parte che gravita sul Danubio.
In questa foto oltre alla composizione č molto bella anche la luce che illumina la scena, delicata e dai toni rosati.
Uno scatto ben eseguito. Complimenti.
Ciao e buona giornata

Have a nice day.

Frumos se termina podul pe partea cealalta. Chiar impresionanta arhitectura lor. Bine prins, imi place filtrul de caldura.

It is indeed an irresistible shot, Ovidiu, and you've captured it well in this warm orange light. St. Stephen's stands out beautifully here, as does the bridge, while Pest fades into the mist beyond - nicely done.

a good choice of the vertical framing for to catch the beautiful architecture of the Chain Bridge and the Szent Istvan Basilica, in a nice view on Pest from Buda hill.
The soft light of the late afternoon, and the warm colors, add a high aesthetical level to your composition.

Shooting into the soul of the city from such high position evokes a nice feel indeed with the stunning bridge provides a nice constant link into the background imposing structure which is easy on the eye. You are blessed by the great warm light, abound of details, shades and shadows. The sheen on the water adds a much value to the whole shot. It's nicely done shot so well presented. Congrats.
