Thanks for all the kind comments, my idea was to shoot the bridge at sunrise, well it rained that early morning, (I had to crop out my umbrella that got in the way). Turns out the rain worked out nicely, otherwise you would see Mercer Island at the end of the bridge. My highest score yet.

Wow this is like David Copperfield making the Statue of Liberty Vanish. Cool how the bridge seems to submerge it self off in the distanct fog. Very well done. You might consider cropping in right and losing the dark straight object near the right border past midway...you would also lose the bright white object on the right side of the frame towards the bottom and could crop up to lose the other on the bottom. Stunner, none the less and Good Luck!

I'm voting a 9. The only thing keeping me from giving a 10 is it doesn't seem quite as sharp as it maybe could be, and the little bit of shore in the bottom right is distracting. If that were cropped out or if you had stood right at the waters edge so the shore was not in the frame, it would appear to be an infinite bridge.

the angle makes it interesting, nice job

Stunning composition!
Contrast & lighting are right on, as is the tone. Great choice for B & W.
A well-deserved ((8)) and one of my top 13 favorites in this challenge!

really intriguing, got a slight 'impossible shape'-ness to it. nicely shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2004 02:31:22 PM
Very cool. Now, where's the rest of the bridge?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2004 12:02:38 PM
Where does that road go? 8 Good shot, just not a favorite.

Great lines and awesome contrasts! Interesting angle. I'm assuming the bridge doesn't really go under the water...
