The water is certainly a lot calmer, its most beautiful with the leaves on the trees too. Great shot, I loved this bridge too.

I would love to see this same composition done on a blue sky day with autumn leaves on the trees. I think this was perfect for the challenge.

Shots like these are why I miss NE Ohio. Beautifully done!

I missed this in the challenge... this is a wonderful shot. I bet it would be cool as a duotone. Congrats on your "star" shot top 10 finish

I'd like to see a version of this available as a print... this is a really great shot, especially with the reflection in the water below.

Wow!! The bridge line as the outer border and the reflection create a frame and an overall really good image. Well done! I am really impressed, nice work.

I think this picture is very lovely!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely! I would have been very tempted to bump the saturation and bring out the blues in the sky and the greens/yellows in the foliage. This could have really been a WOW image, but very nice as is.

The reflection of the bridge forms a lovely oval effect, using the bridge as the top and bottom of the image is very nice...7

Great entry for this challenge. The symmetry works really nicely in this photo. I would maybe like to see a bit more saturation. Very serene and beautiful.

Vey unique and a great photo! I love the angle of the shot and the growth at the base - how one shows and the other doesn't. Very nice work!

very nice capture!

Very unusual take on a bridge photo. Well seen. Nice work

Now we're talking! Beautiful job of meeting the challenge. I especially like the way the light is on the underside of the bridge's left side and how that works so well in the reflection. Imagining it with blue sky! :-)

Very good. This is one of the better entries. Good luck
06/06/2005 09:58:25 PM
Your thinking is grand..but unlevel and this would have made a great black and white, lots of contrasting colors. stilll give you a 8.

great find. interesting crop too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2005 04:59:22 PM
the concept is interesting, to say the least, but I would've put some negative space above the bridge and below the reflection... though there were probably cars crossing it preventing you from doing such while maintaining the same effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2005 03:58:15 PM
The effect of the reflection is really stunning. Beautiful.
06/06/2005 12:36:46 PM
