Hi TE friends
I present today a different POV of this beautiful old bridge over the Drava river.
In the workshop, we can see the bridge in the afternoon
Enjoy it !
The origin of the city of Maribor is closely linked with the crossing over the river Drava. Thus the greater part of the town’s old history rotates around the river Drava and the bridges over it. Many merchant routes lead through the town, so that the bridge represented in peaceful times a source of income, in times of war it was the cause of different dangers.
Today’s Old Bridge, built between the years 1906 and 1912, was one of the most beautiful bridges in the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

very good photo
romanaa (7948) 2008-07-30 2:58
beautiful reflection in the blue hour. The water jets on the bridge are really interesting, I like the way they disturb the mirror image.

the result is a wonderful light impression with very strong elements like the blue sky, the bridge with its reflection and the resulting depth and the very beautiful coloured city in the background. Congratulations my friend, very effective capture.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Budapestman (82620) 2008-07-30 3:37
Great atmosphere with spectacular composition. The reflection is beautiful, the lights are amazing. Excellent blue hour shot, my friend! Have a nice day
kiwi_explorer (12209) 2008-07-30 3:41
Beautiful symmetry created by the reflections ... wonderfully captured. I cannot fault this photo ... the lighting management is awesome ... the atmosphere created is just fantastic. This is an excellent composition. Tfs
bantonbuju (51781) 2008-07-30 4:02
a perfection in the low light photography...
a lesson on how to do this type of photography...
(and the object - fantastic!)
macondo (18595) 2008-07-30 4:15
A very pleasing 'blue hour' photo, with amazingly good definition of the details, and lovely colours. It's a great composition which reveals the lights of the town across the river beneath the arch of the bridge. The quality is very good - with the low ISO you must have used a slow exposure which has turned out very well. Beautiful shot.
jhm (138192) 2008-07-30 4:46
I looked to both picture, and both pictures are very nice, you know that make of a choice always are very difficult is for my.
But I prefer this image here taken during the blue hour, with a fantastic colour.
Technical excellent depth and perspective, one advice my friend, use a tripod and a longer exposure I think that the results are a lot better, certainly the details.
I enjoy absolutely of your splendid work on TE.
Very well done, TFS.
AlexandraR (80) 2008-07-30 6:17
Belissima foto! Gosto muito dos tons, do enquadramento e dos reflexos.
siamesa (27739) 2008-07-30 6:38
Bom dia Aires,
Uma esplêndida foto.As cores, as luzes, o ponto de vista e o ar meio misterioso e nostálgico são soberbos. Parabéns.
abulafia (4900) 2008-07-30 6:40
Great picture Aires
Nice dark blue sky with good colors and reflections.
Very pleasant scene.
izmirli (3987) 2008-07-30 6:46

npecanhuk (64182) 2008-07-30 8:28
Uma foto belíssima, pela imagem da bonita ponte, sob esse ângulo, nessa hora do dia!
Cores, nitidez e POV estão muito bons! Excelentes!
O reflexo está muito bonito também - direto para os meus favoritos!
Cricri (105215) 2008-07-30 8:58
Trés belle aussi de ce POV, toujours a l'heure bleu, de superbe reflets et une belle ambiance avec les lumiéres de la ville,
Good day for you
Stepan (27210) 2008-07-30 12:08
The "close"-crop/pov makes it a little original and the light management is perfect again. The sharpness is excellent, the water jets soft and lovely... Beautiful.
avene (12675) 2008-07-30 14:26
you seem to be fascinated by the bridges, and all your photos of them are very good, it certainly feels that you have given some thought to how best to show any particular place. here I like the colours, especially the hint of purple on the bridge itself, it creates a nice contrast with the yellow and red lights framed by the curve of the construction. excellent work, my compliments.
with best regards,
paura (47166) 2008-07-30 16:52
Aires, o mestre da "blue hour". :-)
A POV está excelente, tomando partido do lindo azul do céu. Linda foto, amigo.
John_F_Kennedy (42062) 2008-07-30 23:08
Very good night shot. The reflections are perfect and the composition is very nicely framed. Lovely blue hour shot, well done.
papagolf21 (85422) 2008-07-31 4:11
Bonjour, cher Aires,
Oh ! la prise de vue est superbe (un grand merci pour le bonus présenté en atelier).
Félicitations pour cette réussite.
ARGI (3456) 2008-07-31 4:18
A piece of Art Aires
Lines and shapes are superb.
Colors are wonderful.
The blue hour gives a beautiful and calm atmosphere to the picture.
Best regards Argyris
jurek1951 (42040) 2008-07-31 5:45
This is another amazing photo.
Great warm colours and light.
A wonderful reflection and composition.
ajayrawat (607) 2008-07-31 11:34
overall mood is quite, sereen, yet strong and muschivously musocal. Specially the tall grass on left corner, as if they are wispering abput the merry time people are having on the other corner of the picture (bright lit up full of life).
Aires I also noticed that you are pn the quitter side of the bridge, where life is still and natural (so you are a peace loving man)
When I look at your photo I find it quite beautiful, as it beautifully brudges so many things in one single frame; bridge between time (old bridge in new time, and with lights it shows a bridge in new life), then you have day and night bridging so beautifully. Then you have festivity on one side and peace calm on other...good work.
Silvio1953 (120522) 2008-07-31 11:55
Ciao Aires, fantastic nocturne shoot with fascinating reflections, wonderful colors, great composition, very well done, ciao Silvio
Gustaw (21670) 2008-07-31 12:12

Docarmo (9639) 2008-07-31 21:36
Um POV muito bem escolhido, valorizando os detalhes desta bela ponte. Os reflexos são muito bonitos e a gestão de luz é impressionante.
Muse (34942) 2008-07-31 23:23
Une très belle photo à l'heure bleue.
Des couleurs intenses et de superbes reflets.

aadilj (18102) 2008-08-01 1:07
Thsoe colours are deep and extremely rich and you have also used the eprspective extremely well. The image is superb like all your works. I love the scene
pablominto (53744) 2008-08-01 1:30
You have achieved some wonderful details in this low light capture!
The strong lines in the bridge really make the composition, and it also works a fine framing of the view to the city...
Exciting colour palette, great use of present light!
mark_mk (266) 2008-08-01 4:02
really a great night shot, the early blue hour gave you a great effect and the POV is well chosen. I especially like the right part of the image, so many wonderful colors.
Everything is perfect, nothing more to say!
rodgerg (55767) 2008-08-01 4:03
A very good POV and a very good photo too. Good use of light of "blue hour". Very nice reflections in the water. I like this one.
chpp (4281) 2008-08-01 8:22
excellent perspective in this image. with great colours and nice reflections. the exposure is very nice and the POV has good depth. I really like the details and colours of the houses in the back
Blairfraser (849) 2008-08-01 8:34
Great picture here! I really like your point of view here as we get a great view of the bridge. Also I feel you have managed the light very well. For me, one of the best things here is the lights of the shops under the first part of the bridge!
Charo (51210) 2008-08-01 9:17
Uma fantástica perspectiva com belas cores. Eu adoro o clima criado pela luz e reflexos. Bravo!
Bom fim de semana.

Excellente compo a l'heure bleue, les couleurs et les reflets sont magnifique, bravo.
Cara (2059) 2008-08-01 14:38
Grande foto, as cores e definição estão soberbas !
Gosto do pov que preenche a foto com a ponte e seu reflexo e do facto da iluminação já estar ligada dando grande destaque á localidade "contra" azul fim do dia.
Muito boa, Cumprimentos,
Scharan (14144) 2008-08-01 16:38
Excelente fotografia Aires!
Efeitos maravilhosos de le luz, cores e reflexos na água. Cores lindas, parabéns!
zeca (19762) 2008-08-01 21:27
Linda foto, Aires! As cores são fantásticas e há muita nitidez em todos os detalhes, apesar da hora ser de pouca luz. Captou perfeitamente a blue hour! Excelente trabalho! Parabéns!
siolaw (38274) 2008-08-01 22:11
The POV is well chosen, the place looks great, specially the reflections and also the water jets catching light... Perfect sharpness and colors... That is excellent job!

gaby (19819) 2008-08-02 10:55
WWWooooowwwwwwwww- formidable night shot - really splendid and well done - bravo, Aires
Have a very good week end
Aviller (3866) 2008-08-02 16:27
Wow, a fantastic picture. The blue sky really looks fantastic and allows you to capture all the details of the city's skyline. Very well framed too, with a spire "hiding" underneath one of the arches of the bridge. Those water jets look amazing thanks to the long exposure as well.

belle photo de ce superbe pont avec ses magnifiques reflets.
Jolies couleurs, bonne netteté,la luminosité est parfaite et le village vu dans la première arcade est magnifique.
Je le place dans mes favorites.
ruisc_pt (10527) 2008-08-03 8:03
Ecelente controlo de luz.
Uma perspectiva fabulosa.
Apreciei essencialmente a ortogonalidade entre os arcos da ponte e os do repuxos de água em planos perpendiculares.
axiotea (21649) 2008-08-03 8:33
The different pov on the bridge across the river Drava is also very nice, with a closer approach to the houses. I like the blue hour feel and the reflections.
sacavem (18610) 2008-08-03 13:25
Olá amigo Aires,

jimkilgallon (0) 2008-08-03 23:18
Excellent perspective of this bridge with very natural blue hour colours and superb shadow detail. The reflections are first rate, it is a superb capture.
danos (85757) 2008-08-04 0:46
Good morning Aires,
excellent the perspective and the POV of the bridge that in combination with the reflection on the surface of the water create a great synthesis.I like the sharpness and the clarity of the houses in the background this difficult hour of the capturing with the low lighting conditions..Well done.
Have a nice week,Danos
brevbrev14 (140) 2008-08-04 3:46
Hola Aires, very well composed image and good quality too

markstaples (15670) 2008-08-04 8:43
The graphic effects of the repeating arches are very pleasing to the eye. Nice one.
francio64 (38276) 2008-08-04 14:38
molto bello questo notturno con il riflesso del ponte nell'acqua.
Ottime le luci e il contrasto.

Emile (20350) 2008-08-06 7:27
Superb night shot during the blue hour of this beautiful place, the POV used to captured the view under the bridge creates a magnificent reflection, the lighted area of the city is also very well seen.
salvator (19102) 2008-08-08 1:48
Very nicely shot with a superb sky and beautiful colors. The details and use of light , the sharpness look wonderful.
Best regards. Salvator.
horatiuTT (4570) 2008-08-13 9:47
This is a lovely night scene,you found a great angle.Splendid
robertosalguero (246) 2008-08-14 23:47
This is a very nice bridge and looks very impossing under low light. The image is nicely balanced in colours and details, plus you managed to get a nice view of the city under the arch. Nice work Aires.
stego (24028) 2008-08-17 17:01
Exploraste bem esta ponte e a luz estupenda! Todas as fotos estão fabulosas, principalmente pelos PdV e pela luz e cores.
Um abraço, José.
