    Beautifully composed. I love the way the path leads around the curve, enticing me to explore further. In my favourites.

    It certainly looks though you are on the edge of the world. Very good composition and right om theme. My top pick.

    Love the lighting. Great arch. Marvelous use of curves.

    A good subject for the theme although the grittiness is a bit too much for me.

    fc - I did add graininess to make the scene more inhospitable. Thanks JadeO. I took a bit of a leap with this one.

    A fine piece of work. The PP suggests you caught the moon naturally here. Stunning composition. A little grainy but not enough to detract though maybe for some. This is seriously one of the nicest shots I've seen here in a long time on a pure photography basis. You are bouncing around somewhere in my top 4.

    Eagle1 - I took the shot at 3200 ISO, so used a preset from Topaz to denoise it. The effect that I chose as part of the conversion to B&W added a bit of grittiness as a finishing touch. I liked it, so I left it in.
Thanks Dave. Bardos - that's what I felt as well. Ysal, I was on a walkway beside the bridge, so difficult to get the full expanse and the moon as well.

    I think I would have liked to seen a bit more of the bridge.

    Great composition and processing, indeed with a scary touch - I feel too i could easily tumble over that railing into empty space!

    Nice image... can feel the isolation. Strong black sky and moon are a good background for the well lite bridge. in my TT

    I like the composition and subject chosen. Not so enamored with the hue coloring (but that's just a matter of taste). This is not a criticism, but I'm wondering why you "denoised" the image and added grittiness to it. Seems to defeat the purpose of denoising. Or maybe you just denoised the cloned parts? That part is a little confusing.
