Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 28 April 2014 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

A snapshot of the Victorian railway bridges and canals in city center Manchester. I photographed this recently using my first ever digital compact camera that I bought at the end of 2006 - its a little Fuji F31 that I still use from time to time. It's only a 6mp camera so producing a square crop means images of a maximum of just 4mp, a far cry from the large and heavy 36mp Nikon D800 that I normally use.

once again no matter what equipment is being used you cannot beat the natural talent for composition! this scene has a fine balance to it with element of the bridges working harmoniously with the others!

Wow, this composition is quite the balancing act, and you've pulled it off. As always lovely tones and mood.
