Good to see another excellent submission from you

Great angle of the bridge, I dont know this area very well at all, must take a drive someday if it ever stops raining.

Congrats on the top 10 place

This could be a powerful image but the tilting verticals just spoil it and make me not want to look at it any more

The overexposure in the top right corner distracts my eyes from the bridge...i do like the composition and subject though.

Great shot! Love the bridge angle on left, building on right...whole image is interesting..b&w is excellent choice here.

Very nicely done. I love your choice of monochrome and the viewpoint you have chosen. The sun in the top right is a minor irritation but otherwise great.

Love this, the contrast and the compusition. I have never been able to capture it as well as this.

wow! this looks like a few cars parked in front of drapery backdrops. The perspective on both the bridge and the hotel are absolutly amazing. 10! The only 10 I have given so far in this challenge!

the angle that you've captured the bridge is very dramatic and further enhanced by the post-processing. great shot!

I love how the hotel jumps out at me..bridge too..nice processing. Composition is dynamic..this is a very interesting shot.

Nice picture. The glow from the sun is a bit distracting but I do like the bridge. Great definition.

Great composition and perspective. It could have a snapshot sense but doesn't due to the excellent lighting and filtration. Nicely done.
