What a cool photo! I just watched the show on TLC about bridges. Truly amazing how you got the cables to show up so well, but get the building in such good focus. I am very impressed.

This is a wonder photo. I love how you framed the building in the bridge....but I bet you have heard that many times already. One of my favorites. I'm sure you'll do well in the challeng.

don't know why...I think you did a great job framing this shot, but it's just missing something to tie it all together.
