This is Erasmusbridge taken from the southside of river Meuse. It looks a little like the bridge I posted yesterday but this bridge is designed for much heavier traffic like cars and trams. The bridge is, for obvious reasons, also called De Zwaan (the swan)

This is a nice sunset shot, but it seems that your subject is so dwarfed by the sky that the title becomes misleading. I like the colours, the POV and the clarity, but perhaps cropping out a bit of the sky above would work?

It is a great image in best time of day. i like this scene. details are very bonny. bridge and buildings, sunset and sea, all have created a excellent photo.

Hello Gilbert a nice view of the nice bridge.
You could have cropped the sky here to make a panoranic view.

Hi Gilbert, interesting bridge, nicely captured city skyline with good POV, colours and sharpness. Before seeing your posts, I hadn't realised how much ultra-modern architecture could be found in the Netherlands, TFS, Betty

Hi, Gilbert! It's an odd and nice bridge, contrasting with the city's conventional skyline. Great colours and sharpness! Thanks for sharing! Best regards from Rio! Miguel.

great dusk shot.
the pov is brilliant.
i love de degrade in the sky and those pink clouds.
such a beautiful place rotterdam is. i didn't have the chance to see it by night (i only visited this city during the day).

Superb shot at this light conditon. Very nicely captured and very well composed.

nice pov and colors, I like the colors in the sky a lot, and the bridge has been captured beautifully.

Hi Gilbert. Good exposure to capture these nice colours, but like a few others have said above I think I would have preferred to see this in panoramic format. I think I would have also done a perspective adjustment in Photoshop (if you know how to do this) because the wide angle distortion looks better when it is on both sides and filling the frame. Cheers . . . David
