@Sriram: Thanks Sriram - I had been getting very frustrated with my old camera but getting a DSLR has really opened things up for me and I'm enjoying taking photos again.

Nimrod from Israel

Wow! That's a wonderful night shot. The lighting creates interesting dramatic atmosphere. Well worth spending the night out in the cold :)

@Nimrod: Hi Nimrod - how's the bridge photography going lately? Its great to hear from you again and thanks for your comments on my other pic too. I've been addicted to taking photos every chance I get since getting the new camera so haven't been visiting other photographers sites as much as I would like lately.

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

The paved brick is is the wall and the light! All your photos deserve a 5-star

@Lorraine: Thanks as always Lorraine! - your words of encouragement have really kept me going during times when I felt I was not getting anywhere with this emotional rollercoaster of a hobby that we all believe so passionately in. I really appreciate the support.

Craiger from Vacaville, California, United States

Wonderful photo. The frame disturbs me (not criticism just an opinion). Great work!

6 Dec 2007 4:40pm

@Craiger: Thanks Craiger - the framing is something I've been wanting to do for a while as I wanted something to tie all my photos together. Anyway, after a lot of thought and some advice from someone whose opinion I respect photographically, I've settled on this simple white border.

yiannis krikis from thessaloniki, Greece

I like the emptyness of this image and the light on the road - very nice work

@yiannis krikis: Thanks very much Yiannis - that directional light was great for taking photos in.

il ne manque plus que jack l'éventreur !!

@rem_la: Thanks - its just the kind of dark cinematic look I was after. If you like this kind of thing then maybe you'll also like this one from a few days ago as someone else thought that, like you, that all it lacked was 'Jack the Ripper'!

Ina from Krugersdorp, South Africa

Beautiful shot - love the reflection and overall color. Well done
