Kind of a neat scene but the processing is a little over the top for my tastes. Also IMHO with the pillar centered it takes away from the shot and would likely work better if the pillar were on one of the thirds line. Good luck in the challenge.

the unnatural brightness from the post processing really detracts from an otherwise great shot.

Thanks for sharing. The halo-ing around the edge of the bridge just doesn;t work for me, Nor does the dark(burnt?) sky. Un-editted this would have been okay, but unfortunately as it is it really doesn;t work.

Sorry, I'm not very fond of the processing...

I like the bridge and the fine detail you brought out, however the halos around the structure itself are a bit distracting, IMO. If it's tonemapped, I'd back off it a bit until they are minimized. Good luck.

Way overdone HDR with weird silhouettes on the piers. Would have used a lighter hand.

The HDR halos really take a lot away from what is otherwise a good shot.

a cool vantage point for the bridge - but the tonemapping is completely overdone here with the extreme halo around the bridge throughout

Looks very good photo, with bad processing. Lots of hallow effect around the bridge.

The processing is a bit distracting here. I think the picture (although of course I lack true knowledge) would've stood alone without all the burning. Great composition and lines.

The processing here is really bizarre. The clouds look dirty and the bridge seems backlit.

don't like the halo around the piller...nice shot otherwise
01/17/2009 10:54:59 AM
way too over processed as you can tell by the huge halo's around the bride and it tilts to the left
01/17/2009 03:43:39 AM
I don't like the edit at all...sorry :(

The halo around the bridge and the gray sky and clouds make this look like a cheap postcard...the central composition doesn't work either, and the horizon is skewed...

The halo around the bridge ruins this for me but it's a better shot than I got. I bet the original is better.
01/16/2009 05:39:49 PM
Nice shot!
01/16/2009 02:04:49 PM
The halo effect around the main part of the bridge kinda detracts from things a bit.
01/16/2009 01:55:07 PM
Your overprocessing didn't really help here, and will probably tank your score. Most voters here don't really like the surreal HDR look--I'm kind of in the middle. I think your composition would've been helped by keeping the bridge tower off center. It seems a bit static to me.
01/16/2009 12:10:54 PM
Your picture has the feel of an old fashioned postcard. I expect to see Brooklyn Falls Wish You Were Here in loopy letters. I'm not sure if I like the halos around the bridge, though.
01/16/2009 01:11:23 AM
ouch...nasty haloing likely from over sharpening.
01/16/2009 12:37:57 AM
Watch the halos.
