The new bridge       ©2016 Mepo
Canon EOS REBEL T3i       2nd place, 155 points
4s, f13, ISO 1600, 113mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Adjusted contrast and brightness. Sharpened slightly.       Extra Info: Like two other bridges in this area, the contractor went bankrupt and had to be replaced. The other two also had to be redesigned as they were structurally unsafe. None of this seems to have had any effect on the city's engineering department which continues business as usual.

    Thanks for all the comments. Very much appreciated. I've made a few excursions to shoot this bridge since it was built and was never able to get a satisfactory view. I went out late at night with my 10mm lens which I had received as a gift. I was lucky to get a small truck crossing so that I could have the red line running just above the bridge rail. The water was very rippled both before and after this shot - some days everything just falls into place :-)

    I really like the angle you've used. The exposure is right on too. Great detail in both the bridges and the reflections.

    Very well taken with a great exposure. I love the little 'stars' on the lights. It's a shame there isn't more actual 'arch' in the reflections but I guess that can't be helped. GL.

    maybe they're keeping the engineering group intact and in place because instead of a building bridges for vehicles, they can build them for wonderful photos?!

    Suits to the topic with those several arches. In my favorites.

    I like the dual perspective we are given by way of the reflection and I like the patterns.

    There is real skill here. You have managed to make this bridge look magical. Perfect for archways theme.

    Cleverly composed composition, bridge and reflections all effectively pull you over to far side of the river. Great image.

    The contractor may not have known how to build a bridge but they sure knew how to design a beautiful one. Lovely image, great lighting and the reflection is wonderful. Very high in my TT.
