Elisabeth bridge in Budapest

The Elisabeth bridge is not my favorite bridge in Budapest. It just looks so plain in comparison. And the old bridge it replaced looked so much nicer. Too bad they changed the style. Still, I always looked for a nice composition with it.

I took this photo already few years back, but when I edited it afterwards, I did not like the result. So it was still in the photo library, but never finished. But few days back I tried to re-edit it again, and this time I liked the result. So here it is.

This photo is was taken from the Liberty bridge. Normally that’s not the best place to take night photos from. The bridge, as almost all bridges, shakes from the traffic, especially the trams. But the day I took this, the bridge was closed for traffic. It was full of people and there was some dance performance in the middle. I have no idea what the occasion was, but I was glad as I could take a nice photo because of it.

This is a three shot panorama, each shot from three exposures. Blended, combined in Panorama and finished in Photoshop. I did not use anything else here. It ended up being a 96Mpix photo, as I used the Sony a7R here and that makes for some large shots.
