Crossed the bridge a few months ago, never realised it was so beautiful. Great shot with wonderful colors and perspective.

Wow. I'll go so far as to predict a ribbon for this. Lighting, composition, contrast are all perfect. 10.

This is a beautiful bridge and photo - where is this located?? I like the bench!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/25/2006 01:28:38 PM
That is lovely, what an awsome bridge...great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/25/2006 06:54:50 AM
Wow. This is beautiful in every way. There doesn't seem to be a single aspect out of place. I hope you put this in your portfolio later without the text. If I see it then, I will add it to my favorites. Lovely shot!

One of my four 10's in this challenge. Wonderful colors, composition and lovely choice of font/text.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2006 03:14:36 PM
Awesome photograph! Great use of extended DOF and the placement of the bench in the frame is perfect. The lettering for "The Torment" is just a bit big for my taste, but is nicely placed in the frame.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2006 02:13:36 PM
Wonderful line and light. One of my top favorites. 10

Beautiful postcard, I'd buy one!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2006 06:33:21 PM
This is gorgeous. I love the bench that balances the text above, and the text below seems to be a foundation for the bridge. Great composition!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 09:42:13 PM
Breathtaking photo, and the text goes well for the postcard format. Fantastic job!

spectacular composition, great crop and font. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 04:28:14 PM
Not sure about the top text, but the bottom text and the photo itself are very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 03:29:13 PM
Superb work - the layout is good with the text complimenting the photograph. 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 02:33:04 PM
Beautiful photograph, very cool composition. A little too over the top with the upper right text, kind of kills all the good things about the photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 01:25:08 PM
Beautiful photo, love your choice of font as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 10:49:46 AM
I love the perspective with the bench aas the grounding force. Good job. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 09:48:34 AM
I love this one. The colors and lighting are fantastic, as well as the perspective. giving it a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 09:01:27 PM
great in many ways. I think we'll see this on the front page.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 08:53:05 PM
Wow. This is very nice. Crisp, clear, wonderful image. Love the sky and the lighting overall. Exceptionally well done. The font type works well up top, the bottom left I'm not sure. I'd wish you luck, but somehow I don't think you need it. :D
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 08:06:48 PM
This is my vote for the blue...I love the warm, rich colors and the composition is great...the bend in the bridge and the empty bench...this shot just takes my breath away.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 07:35:54 PM
the colour and hue really gives this well focused shot atmosphere, it is warm and inviting. The text is in harmony of the shot too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 05:27:34 PM
The lighting on the bench in particular is stunning.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 04:00:14 PM
wonderful shot! love the line and the colurs! very crisp! top ten!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 03:51:56 PM
I really like the colors and the composition. It leads my eye from left to right. And it's pretty balanced with the text. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 01:19:26 PM
Beautiful photo! I think I *might* prefer it without the bench but I love the vantage point you've got so maybe it's worth keeping the bench.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 12:21:04 PM
So far -- my favorite stunner in this challenge! I hope you are seeing ribbon-range scores on this one! It's flawless! My first 10 given in this challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 10:56:03 AM
Beautiful shot!! I especially like the little sparkles on the bridge. Love everything about it except I think it really needs a border to set it off. With a border it would have been a *10* for me...without, still a *9* !!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 10:43:37 AM
Portugal! Had to look it up. WOW this is amazing. Really good.
