What else but the infamous Brooklyn Bridge. One of the most photographed structures in the US. I'm lucky to catch this with somewhat overcast skies.

Congratulations on your top ten finish with this charming capture.

Greetings from the Critique Club

You know, I've seen images of this bridge many times, and you found a new and unique way to photograph it.

I have nothing to add as far as technical or compositional critiquing goes, and will simply say congratulations on your excellent score for an excellent image.

Keep up the good work and continue scoring in the top 10.

I think you already did ;-) Congrats on a great score. Dang, I have to remember to use duotones next time. Btw, I think the darkness works really well.

Skewsme, can I buy this from you? At a reasonable price of course.

Thanks all for judging this to be among the top ten--to my surprise!! I was running out of ideas at the last minute, so why not this famous bridge; it's symmetry could not be ignored. I agree with most that this is a bit dark, which was my intention to create mood but somehow the "intention" did not communicate. Thanks again!!

A 2!! you must be joking!! This is a very very cool shot! deserved to place higher in my opinian!! Still nice finish and a FANTASTIC shot!!!

Ahem. You know, I bought this bridge fair and square from the fella who owns it so I don't know what you're doing taking pictures of it.

Not bad but a bit on the darker side for my taste, not too dark though.

Makes me wanna go out and watch spider-man. The web of wires looks pretty cool. Good choice of color in the picture as well IMO.

Pretty cool when you quickly scroll the image up and down. Nice.

Cool image, though a bit dark on the whole, and a bit chaotic, as well (it's hard to pick out the symmetry in chaos, but the scientists tell us it's there). Nice capture.

Wow, amazing composition. A bit dark, but the complex weave of lines really makes up for it. My favorite of the challenge. 10
