Iconic Galata Bridge is a signature of Istanbul, connecting the historical Sultanahmet district to the "new" area of Beyoglu and its business districts, across the Golden Horn. It has been rebuilt or replaced many times over the centuries, providing a key link between old and new parts of the city.

Exposure 13 sec @ f/11 nervously held down on a narrow ledge at a rooftop cafe. No strap and 7 floors down.

Greetings from the Critique Club

Beautifully exposed image and excellent processing.

I expect in Free Study this would have scored a higher as I think the bridge is perhaps not prominent enough. Difficult to capture that bridge however. I recall it to be rather a busy place

I don't have much to comment, as it is a very good image and anyway did well in this challenge.

Love the lights and colors... however, I feel the bridge is as much the subject here as are the cars or the "legacy" sign...

The only possible knock on this image is that it doesn't scream BRIDGE loud enough. I would bet it would have scored higher in landscape. It is a lovely image full of fascinating detail with a complex set of lighting conditions that you managed to make harmonious. My pick for the blue.
And after consideration bumping it up more.

Nice shot, but the bridge is lost in everything else.

Is that Istanbul? Galata bridge? Either way, lovely capture at night.
