This view up the Danube was taken on a very cold day in December, beautiful smooth water & a lovely sky, I was lucky, The Parliament Building to the right of frame is one of the most stuning buildings I've ever seen & very photogenic.

Wonderful composition with photgenic Parliament Building to the right side and long bridge joined two side of calm river.Good perspective to get sense of depth. Perfect light management to get sharpness and clarity.

Long time no see, so a Very Happy New Year 2012 to you and your wife!
Well, this one was certainly worth the wait! Beautiful composition, fabulous colours and excellent detail and sharpness. Lovely reflections on the calm waters of the blue Danube too.
I can understand why you are attracted to the beautiful parliament building on the right - do you have other, closer-up, pictures of it too?

Panoramica ampia con una buona luce che attraversa il ponte fino ad arrivare al palazzo del parlamento,

Très jolie prise de vue du Danube et de ce magnifique édifice qui se mire dans les eaux calmes avec satisfaction.
L'image est bien composée avec une lumière parfaitement gérée.
Meilleurs voeux 2012.

First, happy New Year!! Original photo of the famous parliamnet in Budapest. The Danube looks very big here and with the smooth surface it is a perfect mirror. Nice colours, beautiful reflections. But it seems to me you wanted to go to Brazil?
All the best

Il est vraiment bleu le Danube. Du mois sous cette belle lumière. Il est large aussi et ton point de vue parfait nous le montre bien. Des beaux bâtiments autour biens mis en valeur sous cette belle lumière.

Charming riverscape with the soft warm light giving this river rich in history a mystical feel.
The stunning archtecture and borad bridge make a striking reflection in the placid river.

nice to see you back in the site with this beautiful panoramic view from Budapest.I like the excellent light and colour management with the warm light and the colours to enhance the beauty of the place even more.Excellent presentation.

UlfE (14641) 2012-02-18 11:13
A beautiful scene indeed. I love the lighting and colours. The compostion is excellent as well. I notice though that details could have been better. I looks like the camera did not focus on the parliament building or perhaps the lighting was too weak. Nevertheless, it is still a really great photo. TFS and have nice weekend!

Très jolie vue du Danube avec les reflets du parlement, une architecture magnifique, un beau souvenir pour moi cette image
delpeoples (54693) 2012-02-18 19:56
Long time no see, good to have you back here.
What a magical scene! All that golden light, the beautiful reflections and of course the incredible architecture. Great choice the landscape framing and the symmetry of the bridge is an added bonus.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely evening

calme et tranquille cet endroit, mais peut-être qu'en y regardant de plus près, il y aurait pas mal d'activité et de mouvement.
Une parfaite expo à presque l'heure bleue.
siolaw (38292) 2012-02-20 8:43
You found great light and air clarity, and framed bridge and parliament properly.
Nice reflections too!
gildasjan (42204) 2012-02-21 9:41
Un très bon cadrage de ce parlement à droite qui laisse toute sa place au pont dans cette composition.De ce point de vue l'image dégage un sentiment de calme.

Excellent sharpness and clarity, also nice depth and perspective.
Nice captured and lovely composed.

Ciao Wilson, fascinating composition with fantastic reflections, great POV on famous river and beautiful architecture, excellent clarity, splendid light and colors, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
paololg (31448) 2012-02-26 13:25
Yes, dear Wilson, you're right, the building of the Hungarian Parliament on the Pest side is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful palaces in Hungary, especially when it is nicely reflected on the Danube as in your beautiful picture. Congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice week!

An interesting viewpoint for the famous parliament, boldly placed on the extreme edge of the photo. It's often photographed from the heights on the opposite side of the river. I like the gentle light highlighting the low bridge and the blue tones in this one.
mesutilgim (88536) 2012-03-04 23:59
An often captured scene of Buda; but here you've achieved a good layout and perfect light. Not only showing us the unique skyline of the city but also the greatness of this queen of European rivers.
TFS and best regards
Angshu (56462) 2012-03-06 21:23
Beautiful light which illuminates the arch of the bridge. Good framing in this picture with the majestic Parliament Building to the right & also with nice reflections
jemaflor (88799) 2012-03-09 2:52
A beautiful view, nice capture, good angle and lovely light, I like also these reflections, well done.

sacimar (26201) 2012-03-23 7:37
great image of this part of Budapest, I like the composition with this light, the view is excellent as well as the details,
serp2000 (41882) 2012-05-07 22:17
An interesting presentation of Budapest. Very nice "blue hour" colors and good sharpness. 10 years ago I choose a trip to Slovakia and ignored Hungary, unfortunatelly. Sometime I hope to visit this country.
Best wishes from Turkey,

Hi Wilson, We were here a few weeks ago for a minerals conference, but too rushed unfortunately. This is a surperb view of the Blue Danube(the watlz music pun) It is certainly a beatiful city and you show one of the best sites. TFS. Murray
Didi (58788) 2012-06-30 3:04

Hello Wilson. A wonderful photo. Composition, light and colors are best. In this photo the Danube appears blue really, what else is usually not the case. Overall, a good shot. Rgds, Wolfgang.
