Post-Processing: cropped. levels to reduce the car lights and enhance bridge. sharpened and then nearly for to resize for competion       Extra Info: Ismabard Kingdom Brunel finest work which regretfully he never saw completed. the Clifton Suspension Bridge with be 150 years old next year.
The bridge has expensive lighting runs which are low usage. The previous scheme was light bulbs and even with a temperture of -10 the bridge never froze but oh boy did they eat the watts.

    I had this as number two only because I thought the winner was so outstanding. But really, the lighting, exposures, reflections, framing, this is among your best yet if not the very best! I'd be proud of this one. Excellent!

    Ahhh, this brings back fond memories of my stay at the Avon Gorge Hotel.
Good framing, focus and exposure. The photo seems to lean to the right a bit. Were you down on the river bank?

    My #1 one from the first run through. Excellent composition and exposure. Love the patch of illuminated foliage under the bridge. I'm always amazed at bridges like this that are still functioning while we have had some major modern bridges replaced three times.

    Great shot, fc. You've done a beautiful job of composing the photo, and the lighting is just perfect!

    This really is just a very well done shot. The lighting, reflection, colour, is just splendid. Maybe could be a tad sharper but, wow, it is a pretty shot. Full marks on framing and composition too.

    The light in the sky is caused by about 40million street lights.....

    It's nice that there's a bit of light left in the sky. If it were pure black, later in the evening, it wouldn't have been so picturesque. Great subject for the theme!
