I have already presented several photos from Newcastle upon Tyne (click here to see them). The city is located, as the name indicates, north of River Tyne and this location near the river obviously is a great opportunity for blue hour photography. Moreover the highlights of Newcastle are its fantastic bridges. Each of them is unique and each is worth of separate presentation. Tonight luckily I had a chance to be there at the blue hour. There are two POVs which are exceptional. I have tried one of them already although with a point-and-shoot-camera (click here to see it), and I always wanted to try this one here.
There are several bridges glued in this view together. You can probably only distinguish two of them both having oval arches. The closes one which you can spot here is the Millenium Bridge. The further arch belongs to the Tyne Bridge The design of the Tyne Bride (1928) was an inspiration for the famous Harbour Bridge (1932) in Sydney. It was designed and build by the same company from Middlesbrough in North East England. The modern oval structure left from the river The Sage Gateshead, is the music and arts centre.

Nice "cityscape" with several interesting features. The effect on the long exposure on the water is somewhat unusual; to me it sort of looks like water on ice after a mild period in the core of winter. The building on the left side is amazing. One could wish there was something equivalent on the other side, but you were the photographer, not the city-planner! Beautiful light and lights, and reflections too of course.

fantastica immagine di questo bellissimo luogo durante l'ora blu.
Le luci sono gestite in modo magistrale e il loro riflesso sull'acqua rende affascinante tutta la scena.
Bello anche l'effetto seta dell'acqua.
Compliments and TFS!

Un caro saluto
macjake (39207) 2012-10-27 21:06
always great to see a new photo from you.
When you post shots here, it increases the quality of the entire site! :)
I know you like to do pseudo HDR, and I think this is one of them right? It just has that look to it that I really like.
wow, what a color set!
I especially like the curve on the far left, and how the light is along that same curve.
the water looks like Ice!
awesome shot all around

Có¿ za wspania³y most z piêknymi imponuj±cymi ³ukami. A obok te¿ zadziwiajacy nowoczesny budynek. Ale ca³e piekno obrazu to te kolorowe odbicia na wodzie.
Genialna kompozycja w rewelacyjnej jako¶ci i w cudownej kolorystyce.
danos (73926) 2012-10-28 1:43

J'aime beaucoup cette photo. La technique est impeccable. J'aime les reflets dans l'eau qui semble gelée comme une patinoire.Les ponts sont de toute beauté et d'un graphisme extraordinaire.
Noel_Byrne (7259) 2012-10-28 9:49
You have an absolutely perfect POV here with one bridge framing the other, the light from each complimenting the other. The reflections and the sky also ties with the beautiful pin sharp light to make a wonderful image.
thanks for sharing!
m00n (2139) 2012-10-28 11:09
Not reveal America as to say that technically this photo is amazing ... a very good almost perfect. For nothing can stick to.
Great night shot ...
josepmarin (55011) 2012-10-28 11:23
the overlapping of the bridges has a strong graphical effect, in this precious capture at dusk, and the nice lighting of the city, combined with the reflections on the water, and with a grey and cloudy sky, provides a high aesthetic level to your composition.
The image is very sharp, and the colors are really beautiful.
It is a magnificent and elegantly executed work.
brianmcc (5536) 2012-10-28 12:18
the colours in your picture are beautiful, and all very natural, especially the sky. the lights illuminating the scene and the skyline are wonderful, and create a richness to the image. as usual the detail and sharpness you achieve are amazing.
maria-v1981 (10403) 2012-10-28 14:25

These are spectacular buildings in a spectacular photo. You have captured the natural light of the blue hour and the many artificial lights perfectly well, not to mention the impressive reflections on the quiet-looking Tyne.
Very well done.

Czesc, bardzo starannie wybrales miejce, rzeczywiscie te mosty tu nakladaja sie na siebie i trudno je rozroznic. Znakomita pocztowka. Poza mostami podoba mi sie tez ten obiekt po lewej. Super odbicia, znakomite kolory.pozdrawiam

Well done for this evening picture. The long exposure gave an interesting iced river.
Good lights management
adramad (27544) 2012-11-02 9:42
Stunning beauty and perfect technique in the realization of this wonderful work.
Fantastic POV with the sequence of the bridges over the river, a reverie these reflections, which give a great beauty with an ideal range of color tones, these dark sky with clouds makes everything else be more highlighted.
Very well done.
Have a good weekend.
Graal (88808) 2012-11-03 1:09
bardzo ladny widok tych mostow gdy zapalily sie swiatla a noc jeszcze nie nadeszla. Odbicia swiatel sa piekne. Interesujaca notka. Bdb jakosc zdjecia, statyw byl tu bardzo uzyteczny.
Milego weekendu zycze.
abmdsudi (26215) 2012-11-03 3:40
There' so much clarity and warmthness in this fine low light shot and thanks to your sturdy tripod. I always enjoy creativity and here you paint with light, colour and reflections. The composition is fine making the bridge so central ensuring focus is centred there. The light-up and atmosphere is great and remarkale contrast. Fine night shot, Congrats.
mesutilgim (67888) 2012-11-04 7:50
Very nice capture from New Castle. Very good layout and light management, very nice reflections. The illuminated bridges gives the effect of a rainbow over the river.
TFS and best regards

adores (28182) 2012-11-08 17:22
I had already seen this bridge in your gallery! Surely a place to photograph at night! I like the pov and the perfect exposure! The reflections on the water are excellent!
siolaw (37568) 2012-11-09 22:22
The succession of bridges gives strong visual impact and graphics to the scene. Well set white balance to get these pleasant colours.
emilbo (20818) 2012-11-10 13:57
Vraiment merveilleuse cette photo prise à l'heure bleu. Tu as choisi le point de vue idéal pour cette scène agréable à regarder. L'éclairage est de toute beauté et ce magnifique pont est bien mis en valeur devant le ciel foncé. Les couleurs sont fantastiques et que dire des reflets, ils sont impressionnants.
Toutes mes félicitations et bon dimanche,
s_lush (15580) 2012-11-22 2:44
I like this blue-hour shot very much. The lights of the city, their reflections in the river and beautiful architectural forms look great here. You have found an excellent point of view, composition and framing. A perfectly good job!
