Wonderful and luminous water perspective with a splendid depth, I see shooting conditions were ideal on that day and you used them well to show us this fine architecture at its best.
Have a nice evening,

The wideness of the lake is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the buildings. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

nice the panoramic view of Geneva waterfront with the facades of the buildings to creates depth and perspective in the image.
The existence of the flags in the frame make it even more attractive as interesting too.
Have a good weekend,Danos

Wonderful view of the city by the lake, fantastic POV with banners that give a nice complement, razor sharp allows us to see the beautiful lakeside promenade and homogeneous facades line.
A beautiful sunny day, which gives a colorful and bright and beautiful. Well done.
Have a nice weekend.

a wonderful view over the calm textured water to the bank and the array of lovely facades. The flags enrich the composition in an interesting and elegant way and provide delightful contrasting colours, depth and perspective as well. You 've managed the brilliant light very effectively abtaining excellent clarity both in the light and in the shade. This is great and I loved your workshop pictures too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

The colouful flags of the Mont Blanc bridge in Geneva are indeed eye-catching and attractive, but it is not very easy to find a good perspective. You want them to dominate photo but they always tend to be either outside the frame or too far away and close to the side. I would say that what you could have considered here could have been to take a vertical photo to get the flag closer, more dominating and closer to the middle. However, here I think it was a good choice to include the boats to the right. Normally there are boats closer to the bridge, but when you took this photo they were obviously not there. The lighting and natural colours of your photo are really great. I also enjoy the inclusion of a lonely male common merganser below the flags. TFS and have a nice weekend!

I like the composition with thw sharp and detailed strip of buildings running horizontally across the width of the photograph. The azure blue of the waters in the foreground and the light blue of the sky at the top offers a nice contrast.
The panorama of the waterfront has been excellently captured.
Thanks for sharing.

You wrapped Genève waterfront with a pastel- blue "fancy gift paper" to show the best of this appartments row surprisingly deprived of skyscrapers and enliven of the colourful local flags!

Ciao caro Ike
A view of Geneva that I have not seen and the variety of flags make elements of interest and colour. Again you were operating in full daylight conditions, which are always a challenge, but you did well here and captured part of the essence of this famous city.
Warm regards and happy weekend
jmdias (48391) 2012-10-27 6:18
I remember I crossed this bridge. nice view of the elements of landscape around.

eldancer1 (20850) 2012-10-28 8:16

josepmarin (56517) 2012-10-29 13:05
I like the graphical combination of the architecture in the shore of the lake and the flags perfectly aligned at the left side of the framing, that they are a real eye-catcher.
A good management of the light and of the colors, with which you have reached a high aesthetic quality.
SWEETFREEDOM (19936) 2012-10-31 4:37
good light and view over the city. very nice colors and details.
Didi (51341) 2012-11-04 15:36
I recognize the flags of Geneva bridge.
I had an interesting boat excursion on the lake in 1987 but the sky was covered.
It's a good place to make panoramic pictures.

Lep pogled sa mosta na Zenevsko jezero ...
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje.
Dobar tekst i kompozicija, lepo pokazano jezero i arhitektura.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc.
Nice view from the bridge on Lake Geneva ...
Good image sharpness, contrast and perspective, beautiful colors.
Good content and composition, nice lake and showed architectures.
Good evening and peaceful night.
All the best.

You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the calm/beautiful lake and old/elegant buildings along the promenade of lake. It's impressive in blue contrast between the lake and the sky, too. And, many kind of flags setting to bridge draws out a good impact in this image.

Wait a minute, I teach at Geneva, but I have never seen this view. Oops, you mean the Geneva in Switzerland, don't you? It's amazing to see so much water and so many boats in a landlocked country. The flags on the left add some warm colors.
