A great thanks to all of you for your votes and comments. I am sorry for Juliet for her DQ, but will gladly accept the blue. 
This bridge is my favoured in Rotterdam, the Erasmus Bridge. The very even background was the result of a perfect sky with no clouds. Very little processing was necessary. The large frame was my personal choice and I am so glad, that most of you liked it. I took a gamble and I worked. The photo was taken early Sunday morning.

I fell in love this the moment I saw it! Magnificent B&W and the way the gradient flows across the sky is perfect! I think the thick border actually works really well and emphasizes the beams of the bridge! Well done on a well deserved ribbon! Added to faves!

Wonderful abstract architecture. Geez.

that border is just killing the photo... its way too big. the actual photo is nice. really good shot actually. but the border is distracting with its size.

Beautiful detail & lines. Conflicted about the heavy border.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2011 12:57:14 PM
I think the frame is too much. But, I love the image. One of the best b&W images I've seen. My choice for blue. The gradients are awesome. The tonal range is very eye-pleasing. Hope to see this ribbon.

Beautiful abstract. Great tones and processing. The square crop really adds to the overall image.

Excellent architectural shot. For once, I am very pleased with the frame that pins down perfectly the intention of the picture.

Lovely lines and tones. A geometric wonder. Excellent photo and processing.

Easily a winner, though it would be brilliant even at standard 3:4. How do you convert colour into such terrific mono?
