This is a great place to shoot (not that I have, but still...) Great photo, and I remember Gavin Hoey doing a video of his photo shoot here with his daughter. A long belated congrats on your blue ribbon.

I am so pleased with your first place finish. I really like your work, and as others, you inspired me to try infrared. Have you considered starting a learning thread in the forums to teach infrared, or at least write a comprehensive tutorial?

Excellent. With these kinds of shots I'd usually have a quibble with the rotation being 1 or 0.1 degrees off, but this is perfect.

Truly superb.

And it is the work of Isambard Kingdom Brunel and all the bricks were transported by the waterway that it crosses, which is odd, as there's precious little waterway left there now.

Magnificent bridge, great shot, congrats...

Great clear picture. Love the gradient in the blue sky fom dark to light. Love the architectural detail in the boxes on top of the arches and the perspective generated by their recession.
