Reflctions on the Riachuelo
As I said in previous post, the water is a kind of creek, called Riachuelo (Spanish description of its name)
It ended in Rio de la Plata, the river along witch is Buenos Aires
It is heavily polluted so the color is brown, here reflecting the sky seems blue
At the back are bridges ( previous post),a highway, warehouses and cranes, far away is Buenos Aires ´s port
So, at the left is Buenos Aires city, while at the right is Maciel Island (in Buenos Aires province), both connected by the highway

sono sempre stato un grande ammiratore del paesaggio e delle aree monumentali , ma da qualche tempo ho scoperto che anche le zone industriali hanno un fascino particolare fatto di forme e colori inconsueti ma non per questo meno validi dal punto di vista fotografico.
Infatti in questi ultimi tempi mi sto concentrando sulla presentazione di realtà di una Roma prettamente industriale più che monumentale.
Lo stesso tipo di ricerca mi sembra che la stia facendo anche te dedicandoti in maniera particolarmente alla valorizzazione de La Boca e mi sembra che ci stai riuscendo ottimamente.
Questo paesaggio di una realta industrializzata a me piace molto perchè alla particolare bellezza del soggetto si somma una composizione perfetta anche per la piacevole presenza dei riflessi ed una grande evidenza al colore che ravviva la composizione.
Una bella ripresa che aiuta a comprendere un altro aspetto della tua Argentina.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Very nice capture with amaing reflections.
The yellow fassades of warehouses creates a perfect effect.
TFS and have a nice weekend

First of all thanks to my Sequoia photo. I did not know that sequoias are growing also in your country. Argentina is on my travelling bucket list, I hope I manage to visit it and to take photo of your giant trees(few year back I was not far away, in Porto Alegre). I promise I will post one of US Sequoia trees later.
Now to your nice photo work. The best is your viewpoint and the excellent composition large bridge structures in the center and the nice yellow-brown warehouse on the right side, all accompanied by beautiful reflections. Well done my friend.
Wish you a very nice weekend.

It takes a good eye to compose the shot!! and lovely that you have spotted the best shooting point to add more live and vigour when the bright stunning colourful side on the right counter balances the stark bridges on the slightly darker side of of the river. An excellent way of recording this unforgettable landmark as to the vital role they contribute in its heydays. You've picked up some nice light too with bright accent colours, great sky and fine details and depth of field drawing the eye to the important parts of the image and gives a real sense of a place. The wonderful display of water reflection has further enhanced the overall image. This is Indeed a cracking capture of the city marker, a shot to be proud off. My congrats.

Hola Nikkitta !!
esta foto te salió muy bonita.... lo que se ve ( agua y edificios ) parecen ser mas lindos, limpios y puros de lo que en realidad son. Los dos puentes como superimpuestos y las reflexiones..... le dan a la foto un efecto especial..... como si la imagen estuviese movida !!!
La verdad es que me gusta y por lo tanto te felicito.
Un lindo fin de semana para ustedes.

An exquisite reflection collected over the smooth water surface, and under great daylight on.
The cranes and bridge, warehouses and waterfront area are very clear on the fine image.
Saludo for a beautiful photo posted.
Buen fin de semana,

Well composed using the rule of thirds with excellent sharpness and superb fg reflections in the water. Good warm cold color contrasts between the yellow and blue and the square outline of the bridge superstructure at left adds a nice graphic element. Tfs!

Bonitos los reflejos y el cielo azul está una maravilla dándole mucho más valor a la imagen! Excelentes colores! Linda composición!
De rugby sí que no sé nada, pero me imagino que ganarle a Australia debe ser imposible para cualquier equipo latinoamericano...

There is a very pleasing composition in this scene, a nod to your talent, as I don't think I would (could) have composed this rather industrial and urban scene to highlight the soft pastel colors and reflections that you have done here. Nice work in the placing of both the horizon and the bridge on the thirds which helps this of course. Nicely done.

Thanks for this beautiful framing from Argentina. Good reflection during the sunset with great colors. TFS!

Una bonita foto!
Me gustam, por ejemplo, la luz y los colores suaves, el cielo y esos reflejos!
La composición también me encanta!

Hi Maria,a very nice capture of this working corner of La Boca,i like the perfect choice of the moment,this light is the best to take the best reflections,excellent details and colors too.Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

nice the view of the charmy bridge with its reflections to complete perfect the whole scenery.I like the excellent placement of the bridge in the scene as the beauty of the place.
adramad (35481) 2013-10-07 13:02
Una foto encantadora a la cual los fabulosos reflejos, ademas de belleza dan un ambiente como de calma y tranquilidad, quizas debido a la quietud de las aguas.
Una magnífica gestión de la luminosidad, la nitidez también esta perfecta, para disfrutar de la imagen.
Preciosa la gama de colores.
Es un bonito trabajo.
Ten un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.

there's a great contradiction between your note and your picture. After reading the note one would expect to see a polluted, dark and ugly place but from your point of view and with a skillful light management you've managed to conceal all the negative features and present a very attractive place with splendid colours. The homogeneous blue tones seem to purify the scenery, the bridges have a graphical charm and the bright colours are delightful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

The reflections are wonderful. The yellow on the warehouses makes a nice contrast to the blue.

Intéressante vue sur ce pont transbordeur et belles reflections sur le chenal
Une ambiance qui me rappelle en partie l'avant port de Nantes

Intéressante note, et de magnifiques reflets, un beau moment ou les couleurs sont très jolies même l'eau :-)

I like the bridges and this photo inspires me to go there back and try finding a new poPOV to present my local Transporter Bridge.
I like that you managed to include some reflections, the bridges created so a nice geometric effect. I see you included the lovely sky -I think I would probably zoom in on the bridges themselves but it is personal preference.
Very well seen and captured,

Interesting picture..the bridge & the reflection in the BG creates an interesting subject. The 'industrial scene' if I may call it looks nice in this picture
claudeD (30607) 2013-11-25 6:28

la estructura y los reflejos estan muy hermosos en esta composicion. me gusta la luz y los detalles del paisaje.

You certainly could have fooled me with the color of the water, it looks anything but polluted. I'll take your word for it though and not think about going for a swim if I'm ever there. :)
Isn't it amazing what a reflection can do for the appeal of a picture? This would otherwise be an industrial and static setting, but the water and your vision has worked together to form a fine and interesting display.
Neat fact too, that we get a visual of both the city and island together in one frame. The natural light has helped put a warm touch over the steel and concrete, and I like the idea to include ample portion of the sky to add more natural element to this scene. Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy.
Cheers from the city side,
