This picture rocks! Normally I think that the Brooklyn Bridge is one of the ugliest things ever designed by man, but you've managed to make it look great! Moody, gothic, and beautiful. Gold star!

This is not a new perspective. This angle is a very popular here in NYC. They sell tons of these on the street.

But yes, this shot is definitely the best of the other entries. Good job.

Where? This image is sharp. Just look at the cables. Focus is excellent.

"One eye commentator": JPR this is an awesome and dynamic image with a low key feel. These images are hard to see the light of their merit at DPC. Here you have overextended yourself, and rightfully claimed the blue honors. Your'e the man.

01/24/2005 10:27:28 AM
Wow! Congrats on the blue, and one of the highest scores ever for the S602. I see you got a 1 in the voting- LOL!

The bridge closest to my heart. I gave you a 10, hoping this would win. Awesome. Congrats!

Very effective as an abstract and love the post processing. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2005 10:10:55 PM
I think this one is my favorite. It is a bit dark, but fitting. Composition is perfect. Sky is interesting and not completely overdone. Very good work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2005 09:46:50 PM
I never get tired of seeing pictures of the Brookly Bridge. I love the choice you made on rotating the image. The patters created by the cables are visualy intreauging, and add a good deal of symmetry to the shot. Very cool. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2005 09:40:50 PM
Since I couldn't possibly imagine making this image better, I'm giving it a 10 and fully expecting it to win a ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2005 08:54:10 PM
If this doesn't ribbon, there is no photography deity in this universe. This is far and away one of the best architectural studies I've seen. This is amazing. :o)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2005 07:56:05 PM
yes, nice. Good lines and detail. Sepia seems to denote sadness and gloom though, so I'm not sure that this is a good choice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2005 03:35:58 PM
The next time I'm in New York I'm definitely bringing my camera to the Brooklyn Bridge. Nice job. I think the clouds add a lot to this shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2005 11:19:46 PM
This is great. I love the angle. Makes for a very interesting perspective. I wouldn't bother with the border though, it distracts from your lines of interest.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2005 04:03:40 PM
Interesting perspective. Was it possible to get the photo with the structure straight? I think it would be more visually pleasing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2005 01:13:29 PM
lovely composition -- I've seen the bridge so many times but never tire of it... you added interest in your shot... one of my ribbon picks

bump from 8 to 9
now will you please tick my comment as helpful... ! ;
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2005 03:14:54 PM
A clear winner as far as I'm concerned. Great viewpoint, excellent use of the camera angle. All too easy to end up with a burnt out sky but you've held it well and managed to retain detail in the stonework. This is engineering and architecture in one.

An absolutely fabulous shot, very well done. Only a ten will do I'm afraid.

Edited for typo!

Wonderful mix of cables and brick. I really like the perspective and the dramatic sky is a perfect complement. One of my favorites. 9

outstanding! the tone is wonderful and the angle really gives an added interest. doesn't get much better than this!

01/20/2005 11:29:11 AM
Superb use of existing components in your composition. Its on the drak and dreary side but still commands high score.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2005 06:10:38 AM
This is a novel perspective on this beautiful old bridge, making it look like a place to find vampires. It's a very striking image. 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2005 07:19:25 PM
Very good work. I think the tilted viewpoint adds a new dimension to the symmetry. Texture, lines, tension, drama. It's all in this image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2005 02:28:31 PM
Very dramatic and well composed

I've never photographed the Brooklyn Bridge but never ceased to be amazed at the variety and quality of the images of those that have. Very nice image. The perspective, background clouds and technical quality make this a good image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I have seen a couple of pictures from this bridge before, but this one is just absolutely breathtaking! hope it ribbons!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2005 05:47:23 AM
Beautifully moody, strikingly framed image. It's more "industrial" than "architectural", but I won't pick nits. Well done!
