Rome - Ponte Regina Margherita
Ponte Regina Margherita (Italian for "Queen Margherita Bridge"), also known as Ponte Margherita, is a bridge linking Piazza della Libertà to Lungotevere Arnaldo da Brescia, in the rioni Campo Marzio and Prati.
The bridge was designed by architect Angelo Vescovali and built between 1886 and 1891; it was dedicated to Margherita of Savoy, first Queen of Italy (1861-1946). The bridge serves as a direct connection between rione Prati and Piazza del Popolo; it was the first masonry bridge built over the Tiber since many centuries.
It shows three masonry arches tiled with travertine and is about 110 meters long.

Buona sera Romano,
Charming river scenery, excelent clear shot and stunning green color of the water.
Those rowers in red are in graeat contrast, and also added the naked branchs on upper part "filling" the relatively empty space on picture.

Ciao Romano, splendida vista del fiume con i ragazzi divertirsi sulle barche. Molto ben composta e catturato in questa fotografia abbastanza buono. Un quadro interessante in un bel momento con una buona nitidezza, bella luce, colore e qualità. Un buon lavoro ben fatto, complimenti amico mio. Grazie per la condivisione di questo bel lavoro.
Buona notte e felice resto della settimana.
Cordiali saluti dal sud della Spagna.

The two flat "boats" filled with school children offer small but fine spots of bright colours that contrast greatly against the green river. This is generally a very nice view of interesting details and the overhanging branches frame the upper part very nicely. This is certainly one of those photos which gain a lot from being watched in the larger version when the details among the children can be seen more clearly. I notice that not all of them wear safe jackets.

Belle vue sur le vieux pont aux deux arches, bien cadrer avec les différents bâtiments de chaque côté, les deux bateaux plein de personnes anime la scène sur cet eau verte, très belle composition

Superbe point de vue sur le Tibre avec les maisons flottantes et le pont à arches. La présence des deux embarcations avec leurs passagers donne de la vie à la scène. Bon cadrage et belles couleurs. Bien fait.

Well composed using the rule of thirds with excellent sharpness, density and saturation. The 2 yellow rafts full of school children on an excursion adds interest and a focal point. Superb high pov and I like the dark tree branches framing the scene and the bg bridge. Tfs!

this one puts a smile on my face for sure.
brings back alot of memories when I was in school as a young lad haha
does Rome ever run out of those charming bridges? it really adds alot to the overall scene.
good memories and a charming city shot, nice post for TE.

Just realized your idea to present the bridges of Roma fron your point of vew, good idea
This is a good capture, well framed of the plenty of action part of the Tiber
Like the colors given by the boats
So there are people living on the river and a kind of restaurant at the other side (blue one)
Well done, bravo

this is a very beautiful and excellently composed impression of the riverside with these typical boats. The colors and the light are really pleasant. What I like best is the atmosphere, one can imagine how the young people are enjoying a lovely day in spring on the river. My compliments!

j'essaie de rattrapper mon retard sur certaines galeries, et je surprends cette photo du Tibre avec la description de ta note historique; je pense avoir emprunté ce pont et je vois que des enfants s'en donnent à coeur joie sur ce Tibre
Beau cadrage et belle luminosité

Lovely, I love the clear split of colours in this shot - specks eye pooping vivid reds on still water strengthen the total beauty of the landscape. The compo is impressive sufficiently packed with interests around seen from good elevated viewpoint as the youngsters on the crafts hold the focus point firmly. As usual your handling of exposure is exquisite. It's so peaceful river sight and always a pleasure to view. Well done shot, Congrats.
