I was eating dinner with some family keeping an eye out the window just itching to leave and take some photos because I could see the weather getting all crazy and dramatic. Finally, I just excused myself from the table and ran to my car, and literally 30 seconds before I arrived on the scene (speeding) a huge double rainbow was hovering over this bridge and would have made for a spectacular photo. I ran out of my car to see it dissipating and it broke my heart. This was my consolation prize :(

This was an outtake, some really crazy weather hit Philadelphia that evening but the rainbow really took the cake, big regret of mine to not go with my instincts and head out earlier...

Very nice postcard but if it were me (for Philly) I would have gone with a shot of Santa getting booed, thrown at, that sort of thing. :P

Great placing in a tough challenge, not a bridge I get to see everyday!

Got tired of Camden, eh! Love the perspective and the great sky you caught. If I didn't know better I would swear there was a mountain range on the lower left! Nice reflection too! This POV is a bear at night, you chose a good time of day. Congrats!

OK - it's so difficult to find anything to comment on here that it sort of makes it success in the postcard genre.

Nice shot of the bridge, but IMO a tighter crop on the bridge would have been better.

A beautiful image rich and dramatic. The lighting angle compliments the author's intent here and it works well. The font is good, but the color should compliment the rich tones displayed in the image.

Well done. Not my favorite but a definite keeper. Lighting is fantastic. Maybe a bit more side coverage of the bridge. Couple hundred yards to the right?

Like the colors & composition. Technically my eyes are resting on the black portion which are supposed to be on the bridge. May be you thought for getting the diagonal lines but other composition or exposure may have worked even better.
