Dear All,

This is a shot from the Landungsbruecken location from the Hamburg harbor. A daily life scene from a late evening showing its own charm and art. I like the colors projected on the surface of water as a result of the lights being reflected from the buildings behind this covered bridge.

Recently fascinated by the nocturnal photography and I know I have to go miles before I get a sound shot of nocturnal locations. Therefore, I have also chosen the category of "experimental" for this picture too.

Hope you enjoy the mood in the shot.

Have a nice weekend.

Best regards,



Hand-held shot with ISO=800, Focal length=18 mm, exposed for 1.3 seconds, cropped, black framed and finally resized the picture for TL.

Hi Paras.

The illuminations, their mix within this scen are very appealing, the lines of reflected coloured light contrasts well with the stark, pale brdge sides. The addition of some cloud also makes an appearance, your choice of framing aids the mood of the scene. As experimental, its very good. tfs

Hi Paras,
A very colorful nocturnal shot of this marvelous bridge and its reflection in the water. A very sharp image and so many details especially in the dark sky.
A lovely wide angle shot enclosed in this complimenting frame.
My best regards,

This shot has great reflections of light with out the light source which is very creative Paras... Great focus and POV with superb exposure and clarity on what may be pedestrian bridge. I will love to see this shot again shot after sunset with no c;louds and dark blue hour sky... WOW. Well done.
