Thanks for all the comments. I agree about the distractions in the lower right and left. Cropping them out just looked worse to me and being a basic challenge I had to leave them in. As for over shapening I seem to be having a problem with that on images with quite a bit of detail. As I did not add any sharpening to this photo throughout the process I think it might be in my rezizing. Still working on it. Overall I'm pretty happy with this score.

Thanks again to all who voted and commented.

I like the old photo feel to this shot; the only thing is the object at left bottom probably could have been cropped out.

Nicely composed but the tree line to sky transition makes it rather obvious the work you've had to do here I'm afraid. I find it rather distracting from what should be the main subject...

composition is funky - love the duotone but would use levels to bring out the whites in the coulds a bit more, would like to see this from another angle..very interesting bridge 6

ha:) I cross it twice a day.. I like the "old" look... what kind of post processing was applied?

I like the shot, interesting bridge and background. My only complaint is with the sepia/duotone. I think it's a little too much saturation or too light..not quite sure. I do like this direction, though.

That really looks like a vintage pic, congrats. Just one thing... IMO it might have been crop a bit to remove the 2 distracting angular spots at the bottom left and right.

Lots of metal. Where to look? Aged color is interesting.

Shame about the bottom left corner... otherwise a very atmospheric image.

Looks vintage but I think I'd rather see more whites than overlay the whole thing with one color. Plenty of interesting details in the metal work.

I like the angle and the subject. The sepia works well. What I find distracting is that it appears severly oversharpened.

Very cool. Looks like a retro postcard!!
