This is a very dynamic shot. I love the use of sepia and the angle. Great job.

This is my first critique on DP Challenge. Do you feel honoured? It was the first image on the page I admit, but even so I feel it was a good one for my first viewing. I really like the perspective and the sepia tones are just wonderful. Thanks for making my first experience a happy one.

Critique Club Review

It's hard to come up with much improvement for this photo, and your score shows it. Great symmetry, and the arch of the bridges takes the eye right to the center between them. I'm trying to imagine this photo in color, to see if I think that could have helped... But I think that sepia or B&W was the better choice. If I would suggest anything different, I would say that to have taken the photo with the sun higher in the sky so that the shadows of the bridges would have been in synch also might have made it a tiny bit better. Also, while clouds do move slowly and seldom do we have all day to take a pic, they are the only distracting elements of this picture I could find. These are tiny, tiny nits that I am picking here. This is a very good picture and one I could see hanging on a wall in my house.

Great job!

Nice photo, the shadow is unfortunate as it breaks the symmetry.

I like this shot very much. Technically this would be a better "Perspective" shot than a "Symmetry" shot. I'm not deducting anything, just making an observation.

Beautiful shot! The sepia toning works in very well here. How come they built two bridges? Did they like the first one so much they duplicated it?

I love the tones and contrasts of this image. Your use of line is wonderful, too. And it's a bridge to boot!
