I'm sure that many of you know well this famous view on the Vatican and the Ponte Sant'Angelo seen from the Ponte Umberto I. Being in Rome I also wanted to take this opportunity and try to catch the scene during a blue hour. Hope you like this 400th posting of my gallery:)
Lovely Sunday to everyone!

che spettacolare immagine per festeggiare 400 foto.
Le luci ed i riflessi dorati contribuiscono ai festeggiamenti, perchè d'oro dovrebbe essere il premio da darti.
Complimenti ancora per questa foto e per tutte le altre che ci hai mostrato e che, spero, continuerai a mostrarci ancora per molto tempo.
Romano46 (16720) 2013-04-28 1:46
complimenti per questa splendida foto colta poco dopo il tramonto.
Il posto lo conosco molto bene e non può suscitarmi meraviglia, però non posso che constatare la perfezione tecnica della ripresa nella quale la nitidezzae la gestione delle luci è eccezionale, tale da permettere la visione di ogni più minuto dettaglio.
Di grande efficacia il cielo che ancora conserva i baglioni di un tramonto ricco di toni caldi.
Ciao e buona domenica
ChrisJ (95900) 2013-04-28 2:02
Wow! An outstanding blue hour image with the deep blue contrasting superbly against the illuminated golden bridge and buildings along the bg waterfront. Good sharpness and superb reflections. I like the repetition of the vertical gold streaks in the water. Tfs!

Gratulacje z okazji 400-go zdjecia!Znakomity wybor na ta okazje.Faktycznie widok,ktory jest znany i chyba jedno z tych miejsc ktore trzeba sfotografowac bedac w Rzymie,ale to nie zmienia faktu,ze zdjecie jest rewelacyjne.
Niesamowite jak rozne swiatlo potrafi zmienic oblicze tej sceny(ja mam podobne zdjecie zrobione o zachodzie slonca-na rozowo).Tutaj pieknie kontrastuja ze soba jeszcze blekitne niebo i podswietlona architektura.
Pozdrawiam i zycze milej niedzieli

A classic view, bathed in golden light and a beautiful long exposure time. The lines of light on the smooth water are magical, as is the glow of the shot itself. Many details to love here, including the lit statue up in the trees, and the last bits of sunlight taking blue hour away with them. Gorgeous work, Gosia!

my favorite part of this photo are the 5 arches, and the wickedly blue skyline with the Dome.

pierrefonds (56116) 2013-04-28 18:28
The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. Using a tripod and a shutter speed of 26 seconds is showing the details and colours of the buildings of the Vatican. It has also a special effect on the colours. Have a nice day.

I saw you today pictures, for the first time they are excellent in terms of content and presentation. Have especially admired the view of buildings and stairs ....
The Vatican effectively radiates light, golden light with wonderful reflections in the water. Very good shot like most of your previous.
Wish you a beautiful day

And you celebrate this event by means of a wonderful blue hour shot, where we can enjoy all the beauty of the architecture of the Vatican and of the Sant'Angelo bridge, from a good POV and with a perfect management of light and colors.
I love these golden tones of the lighting of the buildings and of its reflections on the water.
The f/22 and the 26sec. of exposure time are a clever choice for a beautiful achievement.
An excellent work.
rigoletto (34255) 2013-05-01 11:48
This would be THE place to celebrate any photographic milestone... f22 made the lamps look like stars and 26 sec.s made Tiber look like frozen. Great work of blue hour and it was really worth carrying a tripod with you. Congrats, and may the next 400 photos come from you :)
adores (35721) 2013-05-01 17:15
Hope you keep posting many hundreds more!
It's a really good shot in the blue hour. A very good pov and a perfect exposure - we can see all the details and the star effect of the lamps is great! I also like that dark cloud just above the dome!

une 400eme photo dans de belles couleurs, bleues et or, presque complémentaires.
C'est net, le temps de pose bien choisi, les jeux de lumières séduisent avant l'architecture elle-même.

A true marvel for your 400th picture in TE.
Seems like the stars are at the wrong place ;-)
PaulVDV (21661) 2013-05-09 12:21
I forgot to congratulate you with your 400th post on TE. I found this picture only today.
This golden Vatican image is certainly a masterpiece!
The golden glow covers almost the whole river. The contrast with the blue sky containing some dark clouds is wonderful.
Above all I admire the sharpness of the buildings.
Best regards, Paul

jmdias (54123) 2013-07-03 3:00
looks like a jewel shining in the blue. amazing visual effects using well the shapes and colors. I crossed that bridge under rain while coming back to my hotel in the last moments in rome. I wanted to take a nocturne view like you but I was ever so tired after walking many km and it was almost impossible wait more.
PiotrF (6816) 2013-08-15 8:33
Znakomita, bezblednie wyczekana pora na zrobienie tego zdjecia. Resztki dziennej poswiaty i nocne swiatla stwarzaja niepowtarzalny klimat. Uzupelnia to dobry kadr, ladne odbicia swiatla w wodzie. Przyjemne w odbiorze i zatrzymuje na dluzej.
