I made this picture from a restaurante close to the Drava River
Have a nice day !
Maribor is the second largest city in Slovenia. The population of Maribor is approximately 133,000.

It is the center of the Slovenian region of Lower Styria and its largest city. Maribor Airport is the second largest international airport in Slovenia. The nearest larger urban center is Graz in Austria which is about 60 km (40 miles) away.
Maribor's coat of arms features a white pigeon flying downwards above a white castle with two towers and a portcullis on a red shield.

Na outra foto pareceu-me que tinha visto aqueles repuxos mas como era de noite não tive a certeza. Esta veio confirmar isso. Obrigado.
ë uma ponte muito bonita, não haja dúvidas. E ambas as fotos estão excelentes. Para dizer a verdade, ainda não sei qual delas gosto mais.

Excellent viewpoint for showing this red bridge. I like the way sun hits on the foreground hay. Water sprays are interesting details.

Estupendos colores. La diagonal del puente me encanta. Una muy buena idea.

Un pov et un cadrage en contre plongée qui mettent le pont en valeur.
Très jolies couleurs et belle lumière.
Joli paysage environnant.

Ola Aires! Wonderful bridge, very interesting cityscape. Original perspective, very original geommetry. Nice colours. Very good capture. Boa viagem!

Great shot from this imposing bridge with superb composition and perspective. I like the picturesque details and the beautiful colours. Splendid shot. Have a nice day!
macondo (19564) 2008-11-19 2:46
Well framed shot with marvellous colours and light, and strong perspective view of the bridge. I love those sunlit grasses in the foreground - great composition. I think there's a slight tilt or possibly distortion which makes the building on the far left look like it is leaning to the left. This could be easily corrected and would improve the photo. I like the way one of the bridge arches is framing the town and the church.
PixelTerror (0) 2008-11-19 3:08
Good perspective of the bridge and framing to get the curch under the arch, colors are not too strong for evening light I'd expect stronger red on the bridge, but it's all nice and sharp.
Have a nice day Jy
Gerrit (52047) 2008-11-19 3:22
good view on the red iron bridge and the river and a fine peep to this appealing town.
Teh colors are great.
argycon (2769) 2008-11-19 4:12
Excellent presentation of the bridge. The POV is just perfect.
Have a nice day
trekks (14348) 2008-11-19 4:23
Very impressive POV to show the red bridge of steel arch construction and captured nicely in diagonal. I like the light and the blue sky in giving good contrast.
A nice touch to have a little yellow grass at FG. Very interesting to see the buildings on the other side of riverbank. A fine composition work. Sharp and good DOF.
Kirych (2707) 2008-11-19 4:46
Wonderful composition with bridge on the foreground. Good light, contrast sky and weather.
Best regards, Tanya.
Gessle (70) 2008-11-19 5:47

Beautiful bridge, well composed with the sky!
A great job!
delkoo (68) 2008-11-19 7:06
The shapes and colors are quite appealing,
Interesting image with a very well observed POV.
Yffic (6106) 2008-11-19 7:34
Bien que cette photo soit très réussie, je prefère néanmoins la version de nuit: plus mystérieuse.
Le point de vue est toujours aussi bien choisi.
Cormac (26565) 2008-11-19 7:48
Very well laid out shot! I like the way you used that small strip of grass in the foreground to give this an extra sense of depth and interest. Beautiful lighting too - well done!
celiapires (71) 2008-11-19 7:52
Esta para mim esta ainda mais bonita ...
elendim (69) 2008-11-19 8:23
Great picture with special colors and composition!
I like a lot the contrast between red bridge and green!!
TFS and regards,

one more impressive bridge with great perspective and POV.I like the sharpness and the clarity of the shot as the brilliant light and the houses that exists on the opposite side of the river.Excellent the contrast of the colors as your informative note.Well done.
robiuk (10807) 2008-11-19 15:57
I've never seen these water-jets at the base of a bridge
before! And this photo reveals a little bit more of the
town than the last one...
Fine light, good POV and a good view of bridge details.
gneufeld (15890) 2008-11-19 18:44
This is a very very attractive image with such harmony of shapes, angles, colors, and depth. It doesn't get much better that this. TFS. Gerald
Emile (20352) 2008-11-19 21:51
Otra excelente fotografía del puente de Maribor. Hay una buena perspectiva y me gusta mucho la presencia del pueblo detrás. Buenos colores, POV y una gran definición, buena iluminacion y detalles.
toto (0) 2008-11-19 22:28
belle photo de ce pont magnifique, ces jets d' eaux donne un bel effet en partant des pilaces. Ces herbes a l' avant donne une bonne profondeur a ce pont.
Il doit etre aussi magnifique de nuit.
emka (98706) 2008-11-19 23:41

Hi Aires and congratulation for this impressive photo
The POV is great and the colours beautiful
ahmetgedikli (25605) 2008-11-20 20:48
Nice composition. Excellent POV, colours and good depth. Good work!
TopGeo (38216) 2008-11-20 23:02
Hi Aires! That it can resist no in a [teteia] bridge? and it doesn't photograph him? Here you gave a prospect that impresses
Stepan (27210) 2008-11-20 23:28
Everything's really ok here : the bridge, the pov, the colors, the contrast... Looks like a art statue, almost !! Excellent.
This was my last critique. All the best to you.
bema (26425) 2008-11-20 23:30
last, but not least i want to write down my complimenst to this impressive shot..
a perfect capture indeed..
have a nice day, Bernd
pablominto (53746) 2008-11-20 23:33
A strong diagonal composition, where the curving arches add a dynamic touch!
The special colour of the bridge makes the structure really stand out, and matches well the blue sky...
A good point of view and a great feeling of depth!
fayeulle (27827) 2008-11-21 22:01
Hi Aires I really like the way you framed this bridge in the Eiffel style. Very good colours in this picture.
siolaw (38292) 2008-11-21 23:06
A nice soft light all over, giving these warm colors. Good perspective and depth... nice use of the drying grass as a FG.
Didi (60588) 2008-11-22 7:09
Interesting lateral perspective on this red bridge.
The lights are beautifull; it was a very good moment for taking this picture.
Docarmo (9639) 2008-11-22 19:40
Que arranjo bonito fizeste nesta composição, com a ponte saltando sobre a água até chegar do outro lado, onde vêem-se belos exemplos de arquitetura. E o céu, diga-se de passagem, está magnífico.
paura (47186) 2008-11-23 5:12
A ponte é uma linda obra de engenharia e sua fotografia, com eficiente composição e fotometria,muito boa para mostrá-la. Lindo trabalho, amigo.
plimrn (21344) 2008-11-23 15:19
Very well thought out framing with the strong diagonal of the bridge and the foreground Grasses adding deptyh of Field. The colors are beautifu, sharpness is impeccable. Very interesting note as well.
axiotea (21651) 2008-11-24 8:44
You've already presented this bridge, but here, of course with a different pov. You made a good framing, including the grass in FG adding depth to the image. I like to see the village with the church through the arch adding distance!
cfreire (11741) 2008-11-25 10:39
Olá Aires Santos,
Simplesmente divina esta captura sob um baixo pov que emoldura dentro dos arcos da ponte, parte do cenário da cidade. A vegetação cortinando parte do primeiro plano está excelente, assim como as cores e contrastes. Parabéns. Consuelo
clnaef (6289) 2008-11-26 0:40
Excellent point de vue et belle perspective.
Disabled_A (0) 2008-11-26 1:30
I like very much the POV you chose to show so much in one picture! Good composition, excellent perspective view. I like the depth in the photo, and the warm colour gamma. The red tones of the bridge and the yellowish grass in the FG are wonderful.
npecanhuk (75502) 2008-11-26 10:50
Mais uma de suas belas fotografias, mostrando essa linda ponte (gosto muito dessas construções humanas, a princípio, sobretudo hoje em dia, estruturas comuns e simples, mas que sempre permitiram, literalmente, grandes transposições, grandes avanços e conquistas!).
A luminosidade, as cores e o ponto de vista escolhido estão muito bons aqui! Pelo menos no monitor em que estou no momento, a foto não me parece excessivamente nítida, o que, no caso, fez muito bem ao resultado final!
Parabéns, abraços e até mais!
Wanda1 (15142) 2008-12-10 8:10
The colours and angle of view caught my attention in this one. Great sharp details on the bridge and the surroundings. Love the wispy clouds and the grass in the foreground framing the scene.
Amaz (11475) 2009-06-25 0:26
Bela foto, Aires.
Interessante cores e bom POV!!
Boa nota sobre Maribor!!
Bom travalho, amigo.
