This is the railroad bridge that crosses the Red River into Texas from Oklahoma. The crop is tight so as to focus on the structure of the old iron structure. I desaturated all the colors but the red channel. I wanted to give a feel of days gone by.

Greetings From the Critique Club
Composition: I like the way that you have cropped this,although it gave me vertigo! I hope you were not really so close to the edge!
Exposure good
Desaturating all but the red channels has given the image a sense of oldness and having withstood the ravages of time!
To quote Dustin "good job". Keep it up.

You like to live dangerously close to the edge? Great shot of the bridge and it's decaying features. The red rusty colours of great as are the shots of the bolts and the reflection of the water. nice shot.

You've given this bridge a lot of charachter, I feel as if I am right there myself. The black and white sky and water was a very good decision, it seems as if the rusty red color transforms into B&W as you follow the bridge along. I like it very much.

Nice colors, but the photo is not sharp. I would have played up on the texture on the rusted part.
