You got your high tide then Bill. Still not sure of the comp here. The exposure and lighting is perfect. At the risk of being overly critical, it seems that the 10 - 20 has pulled the lights over on the right. Perhaps this part of the frame could be adjusted if you were inclined to do so. The colours in the grasses are nice and have to work due to them being so dominant. Thankfully they do.
Is it possible to get closer to the bridge on a high tide? I reckon a porttait with a reflection would look good!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks folks.

Some interesting points you've raised, Dave!
Yep, the 10 - 20 does kind of warp things sometimes, especially at the wide end and if the camera is tilted up or down! Smile
I'm not really inclined to try to rectify it as it'd be quite a long and tricky process. I've elected to leave the distortions in.
I do have some portrait shots, some of which I may put up here.
And yes, it is possible to get closer, although that would require further scouting mission to check that a decent composition could be attained. I didn't really have the time to scout out too much, as high tide, sunset, and end of work and my journey time all had to be factored in - it was a case of getting to location 1 and setting up before I lost the light to see by.
I also opted for and stuck with the 10 - 20 rather than something longer, and on the whole I'm pleased with the way my "David Noton experiment" is progressing!
Certainly further scouting and testing different focal lengths will be in order, although composition is not that easy on acount of the extremely slippery and muddy riverbanks. And once it was dark enough to see the lights, it's next to impossible to see anything in the viewfinder or even live view!! Tricky, to say the least!
So, I guess it's: watch this space. As both I and the Bridge live in the same town and it's very photogenic, I think more shots will emerge. Especially as I've proved to myself what I wanted to.

Thanks for calling in and making some good points.
The experiment continues!

Cheers
Bill

The foreground grasses have a lovely warm glow. The 10-20mm is a bugger for distorting sticky-up things!

Stunning! I love the magical and dreamy quality of the light and the deep saturated colours. Hard to believe Bristol can look so beautiful, like a jewel on our muddy river. More of the same please!

:o)
