This is the Forth Rail Bridge viewed from the north side of the Forth - it's just to the north of Edinburgh.

Returning for comment. This photo looks ver neet. The exposure is good. I did notice one small flaw in the upper left hand and bottom right hand corner. It appears you rotated this. You could of tried smudging them out

Yikes! I totally failed to notice this on my monitor at home, it's only looking at it on another computer that i spotted it at all. That was careless of me :(

Cheers for all the great comments folks - very much appreciated :)

:-) Knew there had to be one of the FRB.

Pity it wasn't this week and you could have had it red for Red Nose Day!

Good shot!

50,000 Tons of Beauty! You caught the starry lights, without sacrificing those beautiful arches in the background.

I think that the flare from the lights really sets this night shot off.

The square format is great. Love the way the river looks like it's on fire.
Hate to be technical but ... what a perfect exposure! Has to be a 9.

That white light is annoying. Beautiful shot, otherwise. The lights in the center might be just a bit too strong. Makes it difficult to look at that part of the pic.

This is a very interesting angle that offers a lot of drama. At first glance it looks a tad oversharpened, but that might just be because of the high contrast between the lights and darks - which I really like. The colours and contrast are fantastic, and I like the way you've composed this photograph - very fun to look at and very pretty. Great balance of reflections, bridge, and sky - overall lovely work.

Firth of Fourth is an amazing structure...thanks for the shot. It's a little burned out in places, but over-all, quite stunning.
