  #216 Name That Tune
Entry 14 of 17
   
 
Bridge over troubled waters       ©2019 cookiejar
Panasonic DMC-G85       14th place, 32 points
1/160s, f11, ISO 200, 45mm, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Sharpened, lightened mid tones a little.       Extra Info: I have recently read a book entitled 'The Bridge' by Enza Gandolfo written about this bridge. 35 lives were lost during the disastrous construction of this bridge. Since that time numerous suicides and at least one murder have resulted from falls from the bridge. Troubled waters indeed. (Fencing has now been installed to prevent falls.)

    I agree with cropping off the right hand pillar and landscape suggestion. Thanks .

    Sounds more like 'troubled bridge over water'!

    Seems rather innocuous scene for a location with such a disastrous history. consider cropping/cloning out the dark reflection lower left; apparently it's a reflection of the bridge, but the way it ends suddenly is distracting.

    Is that water troubled?

    I felt the water was too calm for the title until I read your extra info. Very sad.

    I suspected there might be an entry for this iconic song. It turns out to be quite popular. I love this perspective. The only thing missing is more turbulent water. In my TT's.

    An ominous looking bridge that goes with the sad story. Well done.

    I remember the terrible collapse of the and the effect it had on design and construction standards. Good choice for the challenge. I prefer a tighter crop on the right to eliminate all the clutter under that section of the bridge. Still in my tt.
