Forth Bridge & Anchor

By BigCol      
Another shot from my recent trip north of the border. After a disappointing sunrise, I couldn't see the bottom of the garden much less the bottom of the valley! I decided to stop off at this viewpoint anyway. The mist was still covering the top of the bridge towers and the light was flat but I rattled of a couple of shots anyway.
Played around with a bit in Photoshop, with reference to the lith effect article in this weeks AP, and this is the result.
Not sure how it'll do on here but I like it.
Thanks for looking,
Col

With the bridge being built in the Victorian age, the sepia toning works so well. Like your choice of POV too giving an interesting f.g with the old rusty anchor.

Has quite a timeless feel to it with the effect and toning.

Yep, liking your POV Colin. The foreground detail adds to the interest as does the sepia toning.

I like this.
But maybe a step to the left so that the top of the anchot got a bit of seperation against the water on a shade lower so it was against the sky?
