You Shall Not Pass – Budapest, Hungary

The Széchenyi Chain Bridge is of great significance to Hungary for many reasons and to me it was probably the most important part of Budapest that I wanted to photograph.

From the Buda side I was able to stand on a road island with my tripod and capture the subtle light streaks of the cars as they came over the bridge and passed by. The road markings also help with composition and lead in to the centre where the importance of the image and the main attraction has been placed. “They say” never centre your composition. They say a lot though. I wanted this balance so for me, it was right.

Hi Ramesh – quite enjoying your tour of some of Europe’s most distinctive cities. Through the summer, though, I have often found myself asking: “why doesn’t he do more B&W”? Well … this was worth waiting for. Bravo!

Thanks David. I like B&W treatments on low contrasty day images as the tonality looks smoother, which I like.

It’s actually nice to receive a comment, instead of those bot spams, so thank you for taking the time to write.
