Edited after challenge:

Thanks to everyone for all of the great comments. I was not sure how well this would do; I decided to enter it at the last minute and had only the jpg available and a laptop with a questionable screen. I tried to get it dialed in more by looking at the histogram than anything else.

The bridge I am photographing here is a railroad bridge that has no name and spans the James River in Richmond, VA. I had to stop my car at rush hour to get the shot from a parallel bridge, which I have done before. So far no tickets :-)

more of a sky photo than a bridge one. The vantage point you chose should been one where the bridge fills most of the frame

This is pretty, but it always feels a little off when the background element lines up with the subject (the top of hills with top of bridge - my eye stops right there.) Perhaps, an angle for camera lower or higher would have caused more eye-flow.

Fanatastic varation in colour across this one. The silhouette really works. Wel done.

Absolutely gorgeous. Lots of interesting details to look at, and the bridge is perfectly positioned to make for an appealing picture.

I love the color of the sky. It really adds to the photo. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Love the sky. Great silhouette of the bridge and well done to get detail in the foreground, when it's too easy with this kind of shot to leave it completely dark.

Love the sunglare. I would have loved to have seen more of the sky THROUGH the bridge. Not sure you really wanted to stand in the water though.

02/16/2005 05:16:39 PM
one of my fav. really nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 03:55:36 PM
Dramatic sky, nice, provides a great background for the bridge as a profile.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 01:34:25 PM
Even though it's a slender ribbon running acros the middle of the photo, the bridge succeeds in making the photo something. I'm a sucker for sunsets and water, so I love this shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 12:53:09 PM
great contrast between beautiful sky and debris in water.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 10:22:11 AM
Very nice sunset and a nice bridge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 09:28:50 AM
A lower angle that would have put the bridge above the horizon would have made this shot. Otherwise, well done.

Firey skies! Good capture (9)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 06:38:38 AM
Excellent shot. Just enough light in the forground. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 05:55:17 AM
I think it's just a pity the foreground is a little too busy, otherwise i like it.

Has the feel of the aftermath of nuclear war.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Va VOOM. I don't knjow how well this will do, but the schizophrenia of the 2 sides is stunning. Very strong entry.
