Budapest, Lánchíd (Chain Bridge)
Brief history:
In 1832, count István Széchenyi, regarded as "The Greatest Hungarian" began to organize the construction of the bridge. While traveling in England, Széchenyi became personally acquainted with the British engineer William Thierney Clark, who was commissioned to draft the plans for the bridge, and his namesake Adam Clark was asked to direct the construction, which was finished in 1849. At the end of World War II, the retreating German troops blew up the Chain Bridge in January 1945. This vital element of Budapest's cityscape was restored on the 100th anniversary of its inauguration.

returning for comment. I like this shot a lot. Great color, the lighting and composition is great. The reason why I liked it is because you managed to freeze the car and still get good light with a faster shutter.

Very interesting subject, composed nicely. I really like how you've framed the tower with the lions. Works really well. Technically looks very good also. A little nitpicky, but wondering if it might be a tad bit stronger shot if you could of caught it with no cars on the bridge? Nice job.

I like the symmetry. Too bad that the car doesn't stick to it. Where you standing in the middle of the street? 7,

I really like this photo. everyone else's is monotonous and seem almost the same. I like how u took it at night with the lights. and the bridge being amazing doesn't hurt.

A little noisy. Neat Image would help give a nice warm blur to the lights & the reflection on the road. Nicely cropped & I think the cars ADD to the shot.

Strong and effective. I wish it had been shot at such a time as to allow a little hint of colour in the sky. 8
