This is a shot of the Twin Bridges on I-87 just North of Latham, NY in early morning sun. Originally this shot was level but I found the 20 degree rotation more interesting. I debated submitting color versus B&W versus sephia, but submitted in color due to the strong red, blue and green contrasts. I also cropped to leave some blue in the upper right and upper left corners and wonder if these spots help or hurt the composition.

Thanks to everyone who voted and commented on my image. I was hoping to break the top 10 this time but there were many great images in this challenge.

Without doubt the most underrated image. I mean where do those three 2's come from? Well to finish top 20 out of so many entries proves that you are on the right track. Stick with it. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

Nshapiro? Just recognize this bridge from an earlier photo by you if it is indeed you. If it is, not as fond of the composition here, a bit cramped and would have preferred this shot if you had included the tops of the bridges. A nice shot though, gave it a 6.

Cool bridges and great job at capturing the perspective. Colors are good. The rotation is a bit disorienting for me.

Great shot. The tilted horizon works for me in this one.

I like the tilted horizon and think this would also do well "straight". 8
