We have no Bananas       ©2011 forkcandles
Panasonic DMC-GH1       12th place, 34 points
1/59s, f22, ISO 100, 50mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: cropped and resized , sharpened and adjusted levels       Extra Info: The Banana bridge so named for the colour has been the same since it was installed. The bridge was constructed approx a mile away and transported to the site.a number of bridges across the new cut was constructed this way.
The Bridge is near one of the proving plants for the bananas imported direct to the city and the local children were presented with a banana from the first delivery after the war by The Lord Mayor and he showed them how to eat it. The proving plants have since gone but the bridge is a pedestrian way across the river

    Great finding and a perfect contribution to the theme! I think the bridge has also the shape of a banana.
I would have liked to see this picture as a HDR too. There must be something in the shadows...

    I'm certain I would have cloned out the lampstandards, but overall, this is not a bad shot of an unusually coloured bridge.

    Broph. looking at again I think i would have cropped and made the picture more oblong.

    well it was a bit of problem, low sunlight to get the colour and a washed out bridge or dirty brown water which was in flood. chose the bright yellow to disguise some of the graffiti. due to be repainted this year subject to budgets
bananas arrived dark green and the stalks [long bunches were laid in cloth shelving allowing them to be turned and then the yellow skin arrives and they are then shipped to markets and shops

    Love the elongated form to emphasize the subject matter.
A sky and clouds to die for a very distinctive bridge indeed.
The black below the bridge is rather overpowering and perhaps could have been lightened up a bit. That having being said it certainly helps accentuate the yellow bridge.

    I think you may need to check your monitor - I checked on three different ones and they all show the area under the bridge almost totally black. Interesting bridge, interesting history. What is involved in banana proving ?

    What a great find for the contest - it's right on theme
