Amazing image, very film noir!
Was the image staged or did you skulk about on the bridge with your tripod???
Only downside is it doesn't seem quite straight, the uprights lean to the right a bit, or maybe it's an optical illusion!


Very nice shot :thumbsup:

...and I think it's an optical illusion caused by the lighting contrast on the two opposite sides of the shot...

A lovely shot...although my eyes dont seem to cope with the angle terribly well...maybe it is the lighting contrasts being really bright on one side and so dark on the other?

Lovely shot....as usual Mark:smashin:

I see what people are saying re the angle/straightness, I think its an illusion created by being right of centre and the 4 supporting steel strut wires being unequal in focal lenght........:eek:

hmm - i might just adjust it a little and turn it anti-clockwise by a couple of degrees.

To be honest I nearly did this in PP but when I checked the right hand side it was straight but now looking at the left hand column i can see its leaning to the right a bit.

I'll sort it tonight ;)

Lovely shot, Its romantic and spooky at the same time.
It doesn't appear too wonky to me.... perhaps if you'd shot it from the middle of the bridge it'd help.
