Greetings from the Critique Club!

This image has immediate impact! It's crisp! The lines are full of energy--what lovely leading lines and diagonals! I love the limited color choice--it unifies what could otherwise be a complicated color image. The symmetry sings, there are so many ways this image echos itself. I especially like the way the simple lines at the top of the span are repeated at the level of the walkway.

Two elements, the clouds and the people, effectively break the symmetry and add impact. I notice your commentors are divided in their opinions on the inclusion of the people. I think the people add to the composition--they provide scale and help me move into the image. However, I think the expression of their postures is somewhat "blah" in comparison to the energy of the topic. They appear merely incidental to the image and I'd like to see a stronger connection between them.

Overall, technically well done and artistically rendered.

This is great. The people really define the massiveness (?) of the structure. I really like this b/w conversion, also. Great angle.
