Poor Danube, beautiful shot.

Wow! This photo looks very old. What a gorgeous bridge. How sad that the Danube is being threatened by poisonous pollution!

Terrific capture as always, JM! And, yes, it must be a gorgeous view from the hotel!

I love the angle of this shot and the color of the bridge. It has a graceful sweep of an arch.

A delightfully composed, almost monochrome image - with a few splashes of color. Very nice!

I like the greenish tint to this view.
(sadly it would go well with that reddish tint of the contaminated water.)

I might have mentioned this before, but I have a strong desire, I know not why, to visit Budapest. This shot reinforces that desire and that hotel looks amazing. I am running off to goggle it. Beautifully done!

Oh, Budapest! My young Portuguese cousin went there for a university internship and brought back many great photos. Made me want to visit there one day.

Wonderful shot, JM.
