Thanks for the info.

There probably aren't too many viewpoints for this bridge, so you've done well to get a decent shot. It could have been improved by waiting about 3 seconds longer for the people to move. I also think it would be worth increasing contrast and maybe even trying a b&w conversion.

What a beautiful bridge this is, so full of character! Smile

I really like the write up too - it's always lovely to be able to read the history of the image!

Yes a pleasent image, I would also have removed the bright orange ball on the river bank, reduced the shutter speed and increased the aperture from f/5.6 to say f/11 . . . . all constructive critique. Wink

A nice bridge shot Liam. Youve got the whole bridge, good detail in the bridge structure, and included the river. You have some good tips. Another tip for composition is to place the top of the bridge lower in the frame, about 1/3 from the top.
