    Beautiful composition - I think you have captured the character of the bridge. Not sure about the degree of saturation but it certainly catches the eye. I hope they keep it as a pedestrian bridge, it would be a shame to see it demolished. Wonderful reflections. Well done.

    ..great reflection pic & interesting water colour , but a nicely done image, so into the tt it goes....

    I really love the composition, the moody colours and the detail (especially the grunginess of the concrete). This one stands out for me when viewed at full size and even as a thumbnail.

    Really nice shot, high in my favorites! I like the saturation in the water and all the tones work well with each other. There is a distracting bright object near the bottom of the foreground arch that I would clone out, detracts from the natural point of maximum interest (where the foreground arch touches the water.)

    This is a beautiful structure on its own, but reflected in the water, it's just tremendous. The curves, the colours, the symmetry all take it to the next level.

    Love the stillness and symmetry in this one. I'd like to see a poster size print of this one.

    This is a beautful bridge. They just don't build them like this anymore..... such a shame. Love the reflection! In my top picks!

    This is beautiful. It looks like a painting. My #1 vote - well done!

    I believe we have.... the winner! Nicely composed with just enough saturation that with the reflection to make it look exceptional. If anything, I might have backed off the green a bit, as it looks a touch overdone.

    i think there are only two or three that stand out in the main as photos that go beyond just meeting the theme. this is one of them. saturation may be more than needed but gives it pleasing effect. it is a keeper. good luck.
