This is a shot of the Mississippi River Bridge(s) in Vicksburg, MS. As you can probably tell, the old bridge is on the right. In this shot, I am looking toward the Louisiana side.

Interesting parallel and contrasting bridges, lovely colors, great sharpness and detail, smooth river. I'll have to check back for the exposure details. It's wonderful, I love it, and I hope that it does well.

The negative space at the top is just calling out for some text to make this more postcard-like! A lovely shot... it's amazing how moving cars over a bridge can look so serene when it's a long exposure!

nice colors ! depending on which side of the bed you wake up on can help make a decision on which bridge to take across the water !

Great leading lines. I'd like to see some more color in that sky, but controlling nature is tough.

Beautiful. The water looks like glass, I really like the colored lights, and the contrast of the light bridge vs. the dark one. I'm betting this will be in the top. 9
