Orange Trams Of Budapest

Buda Castle, Budapest

Public transport in a big city often makes a great subject for photography, and it looks even better when composed with a famous landmark or two. As we were walking toward the Buda Castle in Budapest I knew that these tram lines would make interesting leading lines, but there was no tram.

Fortunately after waiting just a few seconds this fantastic orange tram appeared from around the corner. A world away from the modern trams of Geneva, I loved their old-fashioned style which seemed to complement the city perfectly. Next time I’ll have to ride on one myself!

Have you visited Budapest? Maybe you’ve experienced the trams from the inside? Please get in touch!

      Thanks Barb. I liked the colour combination too although I can’t put my finger on why, they just seem to work well together. It’s a beautiful city full of fantastic architecture, well worth a visit!

      Absolutely agree Emily! They bring a nice splash of colour to the streets that is sometimes missing amongst the old architecture of the city.

    Ben, apart from loving the subject matter and wonderful composition of this photo, I love the tone. The levels of vibrance in the orange of the tram, the green of the dome, and beige stone of the building all complement one another so very well. Is this a function of post-processing or was this naturally occurring? No matter how it was achieved, a lovely shot!

      Thanks Stacy. The colour balance was largely naturally occurring, although I applied an increase in temperature to the whole image alongside some local changes to the sky. I think I just got lucky with this one!
