I didn't see your images till the other day. I love how the bridge just disappears into the fog. Amazing capture.

So I've only been in this area for 6 months now, but I had gone over this bridge going out to that crazy pumpkin patch in the fall. It immediately caught my eye. Coming from Pittsburgh, I thought I had left most "cool" bridges behind. I'm gonna have to go shoot this. You have a great capture here. I love the gradient fog.

I agree - you got robbed! I like this much more than any of the ribboners, for sure. Beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 07:19:47 PM
Bad luck missing out on a ribbon here - but this is a shot to be proud of for sure.

Congratulations on your 4th placing in very tough competition! Beautiful shot very ribbon worthy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Thanks to everybody that took the time to comment. They are much appreciated.

I just want to point out that this photo is not B&W. Because of the dense fog there was very little color in the original RAW image. I turned down the brightness a little, and increased the contrast. The bridge is actually a grayish green color.
02/23/2005 08:52:59 AM
Congratulations on a top ten finish..I thought this was a special shot and it was!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2005 04:59:13 AM
It looks as if fog is what the people love!! it was so so close. I think this was definatly one of the better shots and you were so close to a ribbon! Hey 4th place is incredible. You beat 414 photographers all over the world.. conrats
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2005 04:21:19 AM
Ouch. To get that far into the 7's and not ribbon is really painful. Great control of the light here, and whatever processing you've done has been achieved with real care.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2005 01:48:37 AM
This was my choice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2005 01:02:07 AM
Pretty good for not expecting much. I like the feel of your shot. Congratulations on a high score that's just one DQ away from a ribbon.

Congratulations on your 4th placing. Deserving a ribbon as well.

Great shot. I grow up within a block of the bridge and police station.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2005 12:10:22 AM
Oh, that sucks, being so close and just missing out (not that I am in any way knocking the ribbon holders, they were sensational shots).

I was sure this one had a ribbon :(

Heartbreaker!
Mick - this was too close after all!
Congrats on your top 5 finish!

Well not much to say but very nice. I think the black and white works well with the fog and your title, it creates mood. 8

Very nice photo, the angle is excellent, because it give a sense of perspective on not only the span but also vertically.

I could see this as a 20"x20" print on the office wall.
Bumped up from 8 to 9 on second pass.

Wonderfull. A 9 from me.

Oooo this is neat. Great lighting, I love how it fades at the bottom.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2005 06:44:11 PM
Interesting how it fades away, perhaps a bit to soon, but nevertheless a good photo.

Just awesome.
Congratulations
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/17/2005 08:55:36 PM
Love this shot..but maybe needs a little crop on left side... a lot of dead space there. Enlarged and cropped, this would be fabulous. back for second comment...i think maybe it's great just the way it is...keep coming back to it and noticing little things like the wires hanging below the bridge..great image

I usually like fog pictures and this is one of the best. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/17/2005 10:02:30 AM
This is an awesome shot...with a great title! I love the way the bridge fades into the fog. It is a very nice picture. I also like the part of the bridge that you can see..it is very pretty.

wow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 04:31:51 PM
Love the fog on this pic. The lack of color and fog together seem to make the bridge seem that much bigger and forboding. Great effort.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 04:05:06 PM
This is one of those shots that it looks like you got EXACTLY what you wanted. It's great. It looks like an eerie Brigadoon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 03:54:50 PM
Nice and gothic looking.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 03:09:32 PM
Top 3 for me - 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 01:52:59 PM
I'd kill for some fog to pass in front of my lens. Beautiful shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 01:14:31 PM

02/16/2005 10:32:14 AM
A greatly mysterious shot especially as the bridge has a lot of character, definitely a great capture..

well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 08:23:04 AM
wow... that's all i can say! Early in the morning? Or just a shitty day? lol
9 for this one!

Nice work, perhaps a little TOO foggy, but what can ya do?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 01:46:16 AM
Evocative shot. Very nice. The thing hanging down on the right distracts (much more than the loops under the support).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 12:20:56 AM
indeed!! nice shot!
