I wasn't going to enter anything, due to not ending up with any good shots. Last minute I decided to relook at the ones I did get.

This is the Ben Franklin Brdge crossing from Philadelphia to Camden, New Jersey. She's a beautiful structure from any angle, but it's not often that you see a picture of her from this angle.

Setup for this shot has me to the right of the dividing wall, but it vears away at the end of the bridge. I had to get within 10-15 feet of traffic due to a sign that would have been in the shot otherwise.

Nice lights, sharpness, DOF, pretty good composition. I keep coming back to this image for another look. One of my top picks for this challenge, hope that it does well, especially from a fellow New Jerseyan.

I love this shot. GREAT capture with the 3, 4 and 5 in the foreground. I think it represents an interstate very well, all the numbers and lights everywhere. And I like the repeating patterns of the bridge, and the fog in the background. Really hope this does well in the challenge.
