Budapest is often called the 'Queen of the Danube'... The same place but a bit different POV from the Liberty Bridge, on the right side you can see the downtown port for these luxury ships.

Morning friend!
grate shot with amazing light and beautiful architecture
very good details and clarity!



Nice compositional elements here - the lead-in of the riverboat, the placement of the bridge in the frame, and the use of negative space at top and bottom to relieve the chaos of the city details through the centre of the frame.

Hello Kristof

Nicely composed, very good blance here.
Very nice view to give the depth.
Sharpness is fine here but using f/8 to f/11 would have been more effective for such captures :)


Hi Kristof,

Impressive panorama across this river. Great lighting and superb clarity. That bridge looks impressive too. Nice photo! Tfs.


Hi Kristof,

another splendid view on Budi ;) *I have remembered the nick you have for Budapest*

Great photo, wonderful light and colours. I love all the details in the image, all those beautiful boats and the bridge in the BG. Nicely framed and presented.

Have a great day,


Hi Kristof,
Great to see a full view of the bridge, very nice composition. Well balanced lighting too, the panoramic crop really suits it. Razor-sharp details also. Well done mate.


Great postcard from Budapest.

Good morning Kristof,

Hi Kristof,
A wonderful scene of Budapest!
A pleasing POV capturing both the Buda side with the castle and the more modern Pest side.
Nice luxury ship waiting to continue its cruise on the River Danube.
A nice warm presentation adorned with accurate sharpness and enclosed in an elegant frame.
Best regards,

Greetings and tfs

Hello Kristof,
Here is another excellent example of a postcard of Budapest. I like the PoV and the lighting, as well as the old architecture that always draws the eyes of tourists to the city.
Well Captured...

Ciao Kristof. Bellissima la prospettiva ed eccellente gestione della luce. Composizione alquanto interessante.


Nice panoramic view with nice colours and details. I might have been tempted to crop on the left hand side at the end of the building and before the end of the bridge. I find my eye wanders a little.
Warm regards

Hi Kristof,

I believe it's one of landmarks at Budapest . . Beautifully composed . .
Did you capture at night or dawn? Please share with us the shot . .
Well done my friend

Hello Kristof

Well framed & composed, withn the right bank of the river & the passenger boat, adding nice linear perspective. The bg bridge makes a good focal point. Tfs!

Hi Kristof,
Very beautiful postcard from Budapest.TFS.


Hello kristof.
Picture looks very inviting.!
Must be fantastic to have a sightseeing with this ship over the river.
Regards from Jan

Fantastic shoe Kristof!! The colors are what really make this shot for me. Great softness to the scene. Composition is spot-on too. It seems there was very bright light, but you managed it very well .. no OE, even on the white boat. It looks like a beautiful city .. is this your home?
Have a great weekend, and thank you for your support and comments on my photos :)

Salut Kristof.
Toujours séparé par le Danube, Buda et Pest sont vraiment deux villes fantastiques.
Ton image y est tout-à-fait représentative du bord de cette rivière qui coule vers le nord.
Très belle image, j’aime beaucoup.
Bonne après-midi.
