Love the flood light almost blowing out part of the bridge; normally that would be a bad thing, now it gives just the right atmosphere.

Wow ! fantastic angle, light and subject. I like bridges and I like photographing them. It is a magnificent subject and this one, in its night-atmosphere, is absolutely magnificent

excellent composition with great light illumination - the bridge seems to be moving in and out of the light here!

This is such a magical image Ian...wonderful tonal range and composition...the bright center gives us a feeling of how busy with traffic it is....beautiful! Hope you are well. I see your are shooting the D40. Hope all well with the D700 too?

@Pavan Kaul: This is an older photo that I've recently reprocessed Pavan. The D700 is fixed and working okay now and I've started using it again thanks as I'm back to full mobility now.

19 Jul 2011 7:46pm

@Ted: Hi Ted, this is an older photo that I've recently reprocessed from scratch. I've now got the D700 back though and started using it again now that I'm fully mobile again.

Wonderful photo, particularly with the lights, the fog and this atmosphere.

The mist gives just the necessary "unreality" to the image!
