Arch Bridge over the Tennessee River. I wish I had had more time to compose this shot but was taken hastily. A sunrise shot is best from this locale.

A beautiful shape with its complement reflection.

I think this photo has potential but there are a few things in my opinion that hold it back. I think if this shot was taken in morning or evening light it would have helped lessen the high dynamic range of this photo. Of course, getting to a scene during those times can be difficult. You may have also tried using a 2 or 4 stop split neutral density filter to help with the dynamic range. One other key thing is the horizon of this photo. It leans from left to right. That will kill a great shot. One last nit pick, if I may, is you may want to try a few different cropping ideas. For instance, crop out some of the blown out sky. Maybe even crop out a little of the shoreline on the right side of the photo.

Not to be all negative, I think you chose an excellent subject for this challenge and got a great reflection in the water. This creates a nice overall balance, a ying and yang if you will. You not only have the outline of the bridge and its reflection, but also all those nice “shapes” called triangles. Keep shooting, and good luck!

I love the lines and shape of the photo, i think it could be cropped out a bit more for my liking.

Kentucky Lake? by Paris?

The sky would be better if you use a graduated ND polorizer ...

With a fixed horizon, this would look much better. Slighty over exposed, though.

It's a gorgeous shot, but you should go abstract on this challenge to score higher. I'd love to see you try something in macro. Keep it up!
