I took this just before dawn. Hopefully the darkness adds to the moody, lonely feel of the empty shoes.

Nice shot. I love old bridges.

I like the concept here. I think this would have had a stronger impact if the shoes were a larger part of the image; perhaps lower camera angle, lens closer to the toes of the shoes, a wider angle lens??? Just my humble opinion.

The lines of this photo draw your eye down the bridge and then back to the shoes. It would have been a much stronger image if the shoes were placed further down the bridge.
