Old Mother Shipton, the local seer, promised the end of the world when the bridge fell down the third time. This is the third bridge!

what a fascinating image: everything is there, we just have to look.

I thought this might be yours, John. It really is very good, and with a bit of dodging and burning to increase contrast and bring out the blacks more, it will make an excellent print. Congrats on a fine finish in such a strong challenge.

An amazing amount of detail in this image. I'm pleased that there is so much to see and you've made it possible to do so.

This is my stomping ground! I spend every weekend here, Good conversion - I haven't done a b&w of the viaduct, must try one! You have done really well to not include the bushes and trees that are just out of frame to the bottom right - I haven't ever managed that! I really like this.

You got the structure and tones for Escher to use this as a model for some of his works. (not voting)

This is such a feast for the eyes! I love all the details and the beautiful toning. What I would give to see a sight like this in person! A 10 from me...

The business of this shot would work better if there were more contrast between the bridge and the houses.

This is a fascinating scene, immensely appealing, I find myself wandering through it cataloging... The processing leaves a little to be desired, it feels flat and listless, but it's at least workmanlike. I like the image itself very much.

What a marvelous location and vantage point. But the processing doesn't work for me.
