Köln!
Schööön... ein umwerfender Anblick!
Gratuliere zu dem traumhaften bild... bin ein bischen neidisch - wär auch gern mal wieder da!
Liebe grüße und wie gesagt - tolles bild, gut getroffen... ich mag es wenn die lichter zu sternen werden und es trifft sich natürlich gut, daß auch noch grad ein zug durchfährt...

Martina.

Not that I'm saying this isn't a fantastic picture and I'm sure that allot of people have stood in this location and thought that it would make a great shot but, it does have a very close resemblance to a picture found in this tutorial //www3.photosig.com/viewarticle.php?id=671

A beautiful shot of a part of the world I'd love to visit! I guess my only nitpick would be that I've seen this from the same vantage point many times before. It would have been interesting to see it from a new angle, aside from what we're used to seeing. I actually have a post card hanging on my refrigerator as we speak that looks just like this. The shot is very well done, but it's just a bit cliche for this particular bridge.

great job on a truly beautiful scene. Nite time setting with starburst lights and the orange glow......WOW

Highway to Heaven? Good shot. A little crooked - the border helped me see that.

Good luck and congratulations on a beauty! -Clicker-

I love how the bridge "bounces" you to the cathedral. Wonderful night shot. And I lvoe the effect on the lights (star filter?)

This is a stunning pic, what a wonderful choice to shoot it at night. I love it, even your border, good luck in the challenge.

very nice!

03/13/2003 12:10:35 PM
The differing colors seems to throw off the uniformity of the picture. I love the angle of the shot, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Well done! The colorfully-lit bridge draws the viewers eye to the catherdral. Lovely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2003 01:27:47 AM
Really like the lighting on this bridgeand the way the lights reflect back onto the water on the other side of the bridge, the way the lights shine all the way across the walkway on the bridge and the way you've captured the lighting on the church on the other side of the river. Great photograph.

03/13/2003 12:43:05 AM
GORGEOUS! You did an excellent job capturing the curves and lines of this bridge, and I LOVE THE LIGHTS! Wow, wow, and wow again! Fantastic - easy 10.

03/12/2003 02:21:12 AM
GORGEOUS! This should do very well, if not ribbon. You not only took a nice shot of the bridge, you included a view of the cathedral too. Your just lucky you live where such things exist!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2003 12:01:18 AM
Good photo. The lights and colors work well together. I like the crop too. The border gives it a postcard kind of feel to it.

Fantastic!

Exciting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2003 10:33:32 PM
This may have been more powerful in black and white... The greenishness of the castle is odd when contrasted with the gold of the bridge -- and the sky wouldn't have the green overcast either.

03/11/2003 09:57:52 PM
Awesome, my favorite so far. Compositionally excellent and your choice to shoot at night makes this shot work. The only thing I don't like is the building being slightly blurred.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2003 09:07:06 PM
Great shot. One of my favorites. I am one for reflections, lighting, mood. You captured all of those=)

clearly both constructed at the same time ;-)

the bridge looks fine, but the cathedral seems to be a little soft . . .

Lovely, this would make a great postcard shot. The colors are great.

One of the best of the week for sure!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Absolutely magnificent. The exposure seems perfect to me. Everything is in clear focus and the contrast in colour between the lights on the bridge and the lights of the cathedral make the shot a winner.

Top notch! This has all the elements for a print! Water, lights, castle, it's all there! This should easily place in the top 3!

great colours, interesting composition. Would have liked more detail on the cathedral, but that's being hyper-picky. Very pretty shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 07:15:05 AM
Great and a very clear shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 04:45:35 AM
This is nice. I think you might have a winner here... definitely if the noise in the sky was cleaned up.
