Wow, what a great shot. For me, the fog and leading lines make this shot technically perfect and a beauty to behold. Adding to my favorites.

Without a sepia mode in oly 460, this is a good pic

Wow I love this Photo!

An average of 6.7 from the non camera users? A full point lower then the others. Unbelievable. End of tiny rant.

This photo is awesome. This deserves to be displayed large. I think you should definitely try to promote this image because everybody will love this and you could make some good money off of it.

The choice of colors is perfect as well as the composition and detail.

I guess you can tell how much I love this photo. Great job!

Congratulations on your #1.

Yours is the first image I've ever made one of my top three choices for the week the instant I saw it. I bet lots of people did.

Everything about this image is great. You are to be commended.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2003 12:27:10 AM
Well done on a stunning entry, and a well deserved first place. The crispness of the bridge is wonderful, without being harsh. And the fog adds a lovely character to the photo. Composition is lovely and the sepia tone really suits the image. Great work!

Great postcard shot. If your photo file size was nearer 150kb instead of 100kb you might have lost the jagges. Good luck.9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2003 05:41:13 PM
Nice "use" of the fog. I also like the color tones (or lack thereof) you ahve used here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2003 05:04:53 PM
Wow! You've captured my attention with this photograph. . .
I'm waiting for a sailboat to come silently sailing through the fog. . .
You've captured great detail, the ladders on the concrete, the trees in the foggy background, I can almost hear a foghorn blowing. . .
Great job! !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2003 08:58:27 AM
Very nice. Perfect fog. One of my favorites. I like the sepia tone.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2003 09:45:00 AM
yeah, okay hotshot. not all of us live in some mystical world where bridges fade off into mists that allows us to take amazing photos . . . (great shot!)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2003 01:50:09 AM

Beautiful... a winner for sure. I don't like you 'cause your photo is better than mine. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 09:20:10 PM
I'm enthralled!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 09:08:46 PM
The perspective and illusion of infinity make this a great shot. It perfectly captures the mood. The only slight detraction for me is the spot of woods to the right, that sort of messes up the balance for me. Otherwise one of my favorites for the week. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 07:56:58 PM
Great Shot.

phenomenal photo... the fog is most impressive in this shot :) = 10 - setzler
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 02:17:54 PM
Lovely. Seen it before? But so well done, it doesn't matter too much. I'll have to see just how close to that other shot it is though ... which I have, and of course it's really quite different. Great tones, great light, great detail, composition. I think you're the first 9 this week
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 01:51:51 PM
That's a beautiful shot. I am not sure how it was achieved, but it is a lovely effect. I like the sepia colour too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 12:43:40 PM
Awesome shot! Nice sharp lines and great detail. Sepia works well with the photo IMO. The fog is an especially nice touch. Good luck with the challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 12:39:54 PM
Wow -- awesome shot! Very reminiscant of the winner of the "reflections" challenge. In fact, this shot looks like one of the bridges that's near the bridge in that shot (I live near the bridge in that winning shot). Nice work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 12:12:21 PM
Just plain gorgeous. Simple, yet holds my eye! 10

Incredible shot; perfect tone! Very nicely done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I am rather new to this so technically I can't comment, but asthetically... I like the composition. Good perspective and hazy & sharp at the same time
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 04:59:16 AM
A photo similar to this won a while back (in the reflection challenge if I recall).. I thin you may well win this one.. This is the sort of shot I would buy as a print.. NICE ONE!!!!!!!! marksimms

One of my top picks this challenge. Gorgeous.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 01:06:59 AM
Great shot! I expected at least one shot with mist, and this is a good one, the only thing I would change is the composition, I'm not sure I like where the bridge is cut off at the top, otherwise great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 12:44:39 AM
WOW ! This is nice. The color choice and the fog lends such a great mood to this shot ! GREAT job !
