Today i got up early in the morning to catch the bus to Bratislava. After eleven hours I was in the capital of Slovakia. I must confess I was a bit tired when i came to the nice hostel near the castle, but the evening was very pleasant so I left my bigger backpack and went for a romantic walk with my friend (I mean tripod:)).
At home I checked in Google where I should go for a nice blue hour, so without loosing any time I went on the other side of Danube.
Bratislava is less visited than Prague but it is very nice city and I am glad that I had such crazy idea to go to Spain through Slovakia.
on my laptop I do not see properly. On other screen it is too dark. Maybe I repost it later.

Is your husband aware of your romantic "friend?" :) Never leave home without it now, yeah? You've made so many of us proud. lol Off on another journey I see, and we are the photographic beneficiaries. Love this early evening imagery, there's a hauntingly beautiful sentiment about this scene. It would appear the majestic manor on the hill is projecting enough light to keep the sky from going dark around it...a neat effect from this timing. Love the reds and yellows, particularly in the waters reflection. Travel safe. Thanks for keeping us in mind, I always enjoy following along. Take good care.

Tu as trouvé le bon endroit pour réaliser cette bonne heure bleue (peut-être un tout petit peu sombre?) de Bratislava. Beaux reflets.

I've seen your photos of Bratislava on FB (unfortunately, only 1 post per day here!), they all are beautiful.. and I think you chose one of the best to show on TE: we can see many things in one image: that castle on the hill, river, church, bridge!.. I don't mind the darkness: in fact, when we edit photos we often change the real colours for brighter (which is natural). So I'm sure when you went out to shoot, it was exactly as it looks in the photo: darker in reality.. I know many people don't like night shots (because it's dark LOL) but darkness is a natural part of our life. Besides, it's so beautiful with all these lights on, and these reflections!..
that's my humble opinion :)

a glorious semi-blue hour shot this. Love the detailing and immaculate execution that captures the atmosphere so perfectly. Love the lights on the waters, very romantic.
Enjoy your weekend - B.

Une très belle photo de nuit. Le temps d'exposition est parfait et fait bien ressortir les couleurs, les reflets et les détails de ce magnifique endroit.

Not too dark at all, the bright gold tones from the buildings and the reflections lift the whole image perfectly in my eyes. and its a beautiful result! The sky has such amazing variance in blue and black, this is a really cool shot. Thanks for sharing!
All the best

Beautiful and romantic view with that castle and church of the bridge highlighted. Nice colors and reflections too. Beautiful, girl!!

No need to re-post, Malgo, a superb blue hour par-excellence shot.
Beautifully managed the lights over the danuba, and city castle prominently above, well shown illuminated.
Have a nice stay in Bratislava, enjoy the weekend and days ahead,
marabu61 (7211) 2014-05-10 12:42
This picture is by no means to dark, quite to the contrary it is perfectly exposed.
The way the castle high above the city stands out against the blue skay and the black Danube is extraordinary.
have a great day

Ma tu sei sempre in giro, non ti fermi mai, come posso io essere vicino a te? Solo con le foto su TE....
Bratislava è molto bella e questa foto è altrettanto bella, giusta esposizione, il castello sembra brillare di luce propria.
Molto bella la diagonale di luce a destra, crea una splendida profondità.
mirosu (12256) 2014-05-11 4:06
Beautiful night photo from my native town. Superb night view up to Bratislava's castle. The great castle and church lighting and the excellent light reflections also lends a lovely contrast to the scene.
Very well done.
photoray (9767) 2014-05-11 6:21
The night lights glowing in yellows and reds dominate. The golden bridge then leading towards land, with the bright light church tower, then the majestic building in white light a top the hill.
Nicely composed and created,

You? Tired? I don't believe it! I was just thinking, it's now been a year since you were here in Australia, and now you are off to other countries, never stopping your itchy feet. Despite being tired, you did so well to capture this low light shot. It's absolutely beautiful, perfectly exposed and superbly sharp. Your little tripod has served you faithfully. Excellent photo, and I can't wait to hear of your Itchy Feet Andalusian Adventures :)
Lisa (I will have a Vegemite toast in your honour tomorrow morning)

I always open your gallery with bated anticipation...which new country has Malgo been to recently? :-)Slovakia it is...and what a fine picture in the blue hour from Bratislava! I feel that the castle is a bit OE and can be reduced in PP...but that takes nothing away from the beauty the picture is...
