Today i was taking a look at some old photos and i found this one...
It's taken by the Arno River and the bridge is "Ponte Vecchio"..Ponte Vecchio is noted for still having shops built along it, as was once common. Butchers initially occupied the shops; the present tenants are jewellers, art dealers and souvenir sellers. It has been described as Europe's oldest wholly-stone, closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge, but there are far older segmental arch bridges such as Alconétar Bridge.
HERE is another photo taken tha same day that i've already posted on TE..
I've also posted a workshop!

Incredibile riflesso, veramente si fatica a capire quale è la parte in aria! Gran bell'effetto!

Anche tu non scherzi. Bellissima, effetto da vertigo.

Absolutely amazing reflection of the bridge.
silviab (2497) 2011-03-21 10:41
What a strange picture!
I really do not understand where the truth ends and where the reflection begins. Very original!

just fabulous reflection, even (or especially)the boiat under the bridge. I still think I would have posted it the RIGHT way up, but it does make the point.

Γεια σου Χρυσούλα,
Εξαιρετική και μοναδική αυτή η σύνθεση με τις απόλυτες αντανακλάσεις, πανέμορφη και πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα αυτή η γέφυρα πολυκατοικία, μου αρέσει η ανάποδη παρουσίαση που δίνει την αίσθηση της αμφιβολίας στον θεατή, πολύ καλή η γωνιά λήψης, τα χρώματα και η διαχείριση του φωτός, θαυμάσια δουλειά.
Καλό βράδυ, Βασίλης.

I see three diff sectors of water reflections after turning this upside town, the true image. Very clever presentation sort of testing our brain about logic and I like your ideas and vision. Excellent capture highlighting much details in equally good exposure, love the shapes and repeated lines and the curves tranforming it into symmetrical patterns. Quite an inspired shot, the colours are good & the picture standout. Congrats
josepmarin (57065) 2011-03-23 1:12
a good idea to turn 180º the image, putting the reflections above of the framing, in an image with a good optical effect, which cheats our sight for a while.
You have played skillfully with the real image of the famous Ponte Vecchio and its image reflected on the water of the river, creating a composition with a strong graphism.
It is an excellent work.

Ahah, you revert the view. Not so obvious at first glance. You were lucky to have no wind to get this nice mirror effect. Good idea for this photo.
sunamoon (6293) 2011-03-23 8:44
wowww impresionante la foto!
Muy original, reflejos impresionantes. Me gusta la textura de la foto! Felicidades!
Waylim (24302) 2011-03-23 8:46
I like this very much, it is a clever idea to turn it upside down, which off course depend very much on the perfect reflection. Though doing this way give people also the wrong impression that the photo is not very sharp because we are looking at the reflection. Beautiful colors, good clarity and nice symetrical composition.
Longroute (19392) 2011-03-23 12:51
Una foto incredibile!
Sì, l'hai messa capovolta!!!
Beh, l'effetto è straordinario - che riflessi!
Una luce e colori stupendi, da far strabuzzare gli occhi.
mauro61 (52623) 2011-03-23 15:22
un lavoro ottimamente eseguito e una immagine di grande bellezza con realtà e riflesso perfettamente fusi insieme.
Graal (93560) 2011-03-23 23:52
fine effect. Amazing result after the rotation image about 180 degrees. Good idea and well done photo. I like it.
Have a nice day.

very artistic and colorful, in love with it.... but i would recommend to remove the Upside Down word and make it simpler...

i think this is my first time visiting your gallery, i really like what i see.
especially with this creative take on a well photographed bridge in Florence.
this is an eye catcher for sure, having the 2 arches really makes such a visual impact.
love to see all the people on the bridgedeck.
excellent reflection shot
faletiz (10759) 2011-03-25 4:53
caspita che riflesso fantastico! Hai fatto bene a ruotare la foto, l'effetto è ancora più evidente e ho dovuto tornare più volte con lo sguardo sull'immagine per capire come funzionava. Bellissia la luce e splendidi i colori. Brava, un bellissimo lavoro.
Buona giornata e complimenti per lka tua bella galleria
vjmite (3588) 2011-03-25 23:45
A clever photo, colourful and sharp. A good idea to turn the photo upside down - it looks like two paintings in an ornate frame. You had perfect lighting for the shot.
prashantprabhu (215) 2011-03-28 19:57
I'm impressed by this one! BEautiful use of reflection I must say. And the colours and composition is just perfect.

Ciao Chrysoula, fantastic reflection from famous bridge, excellent clarity, wonderful bright colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good weeek end, ciao Silvio
dta (59121) 2011-04-08 8:26
Ciao Chrysoula ,
An outstanding and intriguing reflection picture ! I can look at it again and again , I don't understand how you can obtain this effect .

Khalimera Chrysoula, finally a different picture with reflections on TE! wow, this one really steps out. Perfect idea and composition, and I love the boat detail and also the cheating reflections of that castle-like thing and the buildings on the other shore that don't exist on the other side of the axe of symmetry. It's a liiitle bit tilted, and it could look better with a simple thin frame or without any. Anyway, perfect shot!
