This was going to be an outtake but the more I looked at it I liked it better than what I was going to enter. I think the black and white conversion came out very well. The curvature of the bridge added interest to the photograph along with the dripping paint stains on the face of the first trestle.

Converted to black and white in RAW editor.

One of 3 top favorites for me in this category!

The abstractness of this image, is simply very powerful.

Great Job!

Very nice use of an everyday object as rendered to abstract form.

Great textures, this is actually quite eerie looking. Good shot.

Nice set of repeating rectanglar shapes, and the trestle seems to do well with your choice of B&W conversion. A little tighter crop, all sides but in particular removing the bright gravel (?) from the bottom of the picture might make the image more obviously abstract.

Really like the PP here. The starkness of it really brings focus to the shapes. (no vote)

the textures in this is just amazing. It gives it a grungy abandoned sort of look. I love how it just leads my eyes straight down the corridor wondering whats at the end 8
