Taken in DUMBO as the sun was setting... for those of you who don't know this is the Manhattan Bridge going over the East River in New York City.

Not a lot of editing - the most significant thing was managing the highlights in RAW and bumping the saturation & contrast.

**post challenge**

My first ribbon! And it only took 2 years! haha.

Thanks for all the comments & votes, all very much appreciated.

Not very close to the theme, perhaps - but very beautiful. Shame that woman is in the way but it doesn't detract from a great shot.
