Of interest to me as I was, professionally, a Metallurgist. The worlds first iron bridge constructed by Abraham Darby over the Severn gorge. Given the original neg, shot on a 2 1/4 square Yashica TLR rather a long time ago, some treatment in CS3.

Scanned at 2400dpi. Cleaned up. Power station chimneys on horizon removed - naughty? - sepia toned and contrast boosted. Trying to be a bit different.

Camera:Yashic D TLR
Lens:Yashinon
Title:Ironbridge, Shropshire.

I like the sepia treatment you have applied to this oft photographed scene.
Can you not complete the circle with a touch more foreground?

Fraid not Ken - would have been rather nice. Just shows, can't be perfect all the time!

This image was originally printed in the wet darkroom and entered into several local competitions - your comment was picked up every time and was the reason the image never won anything.

If I had bothered to look properly at the time....

Just shows why it is worth having a look at the LCD on our modern cameras before leaving the scene!

I really like the reflection and the 'little' people on the bridge,they make the photo more interesting.And also from this angle, you captured the beautiful structure of the bridge.Nice introduction,too.
BTW, thank you for your critique on my photo and please to 'meet' you.Wink
