    That is a really striking perspective of this bridge. The lighting, the crispness and depth of the colours really add impact.

    Unusual perspective makes for an engaging shot.

    I don't have to think about it, I see a bridge. As per the challenge brief this is on the mark. Nice blue sky, good detail. My favourite.

    Nice shot, colors etc. worked in 23rd street area for 32 yrs, never went over the bridge or on the tram, only under it a few times.

    Great capture of the bridge. The cable car tower on the left distracts somewhat and perhaps a different angle or tight crop might help. Nonetheless you are right on theme.

    Clone out that tram line, tram and tower and maybe you'd have an even more spectacular shot since the tram line and bridge vie for #1 subject. That said, it may also be they are a team and in that spirit, I think this is a really spectacular shot, well framed and lit with beautiful colour. (What is vibrance and what program is it in?)

    Well you got my feet tapping!
Nice rendition - the texture and shape of the bridge bring back good memories.
Looking for fun and feelin' groovy.

    Thanks for the well explained comment. I would have liked to have been able to isolate the bridge a bit more from its surroundings, but the lighting on the bridge and shadows on the surrounding structures do help to keep the focus on the bridge as the main subject I think.

    I want to like this bridge, as it definitely has a unique character, but my eyes are pulled away by what I consider to be other rather unappealing design elements that accompany it. I recognize, of course, that this is a matter of personal opinion and taste. Others may find the "industrial" city architecture and steel "erector set" tower to their liking. I can't fault the photographer too severely for my bias, because the image is nicely composed and technically well done.
