Wow, amazing composition. The colors and lighting are perfect. Has a strange atmosphere, like an alien city.
Congrats on your ribbon.

I can't believe you think it needs straightening! Composition is not about straight lines and water does not run uphill?

06/06/2006 03:27:00 AM
Obviously NOT the Yarra!!! Excellent effect with the light, which lens did you use? Were you in a boat? All in all a great shot, congratulations.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2006 02:59:39 AM
Great shot.

By the way, which bridge in Melbourne is this under? I've lived here all my life and cant picture it. Is it the Spencer/Clarendon St bridge over the yarra, or St Kilda Rd, or somewhere else completely?

Fitting that this got yellow with that touch of yellow in the shot. The water and the marble look so incredibly perfect that it looks like something designed in 3DS Max.

Freaky - first and third both by Aussies and shot under bridges. Really creative shot. The composition using only two colours makes it!

Cogratulations from another Aussie.

Congratulations on your first ribbon. Great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/05/2006 01:27:20 AM
I prefer the thumbnail view to the full size version of this shot, the thumbnail view to me resembles a cartoon fairytale, but the illusion doesn't hold up with the larger shot, however the reflections do add character to the bridge. Congrats on your ribbon.

I really like this iamge. Very well done. The colour seperation and water reflected light on the pillars is very nice. It shows me a clear understudy of architecture.

Fabulous water reflections and good use of complementary colors.

new bridge or freshly painted? it seems unreal, almost rendered rather than photographed. Excellent find and great point of view. 7

This looks surreal, futuristic. The water, the grey pillars and especially the patterned reflections on the pillars look fantastic. Lighting and exposure is spot on.

How can something so cold and hard be this beautiful. Can't wait to here what if any after shot editing you did. This is ribbon material in my opinion.

05/29/2006 12:47:09 PM
ooohh , extra points for the cool feeling and reflections - I think this will do well - I'm viewing ona mac so it's a little on the light side but I imagine a little darker woudl be just fantastic. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/29/2006 10:00:55 AM
OMG, This is stunning. The reflection of the water on the pillers is sureal. The colors are sepctacular and you managed to expose this perfectly. That is not an easy exposure as the water on the left and the water in the middle are a few stops apart. Also your framing is perfect. DARN DARN DARN you here goes my chance at first place. This calls for PRINT!!! 10 10 10. Can you give a 12?
