The perspective as well as the reflexion is very, very good. By scrolling I've seen the alternative where the cemetery and the buildings in the foreground are cropped away. Not bad that one either.

This is the "Arslanagića most" (Arslanagić's bridge), it wasn't built in the old Roman era :)
The bridge was originally built in 1574 by Grand Vezir Mehmed-pasha Sokolović and served as trading link with Novi (Herceg Novi, Montenegro) and Ragusa (Dubrovnik, Croatia). The bridge got its name only in the 17th from Arslan-aga a nobleman who fled Novi after it fell to the Venetians. He set up a toll collection center near the bridge.
