Web of Intrigue

By Jasper87  
First of all, many many thanks for the response to "Silver & Gold", the votes, the clicks, the comments and especially the UAs (thanked personally).

Another bridge again here. Slightly different, but I thought the shapes and shadows worked well in high contrast b&w. This is the Webb Bridge in Melbourne taken earlier this year.

Webb Bridge is a walkway/cycleway across the Yarra River from the southside housing developments to the northside entertainment, shopping and dining venues at the Melbourne Docklands. It is an interesting, unique-looking bridge which is part of a Melbourne public art project. Webb Bridge (or Web Bridge) was actually designed to represent a Koori eel trap. The bridge reuses the remaining sections of the disused Webb Rail Bridge.

Makes a great abstract pattern shot, Dave, especially with all those shadows Smile The inclusion of the two figures gives it added interest, and are perfectly positioned with the frame Wink

The harsh light and further high-contrast mono treatment bring out some fantastic shadows that attract by their jagged randomness. The two figures might almost be walking on the lines to save them from falling through into the void. Remarkable and challenging sci-fi atmosphere, a picture with panache.

Well spotted (or should that be striped). It's always worthwhile paying attention to shadow detail which you have done here with excellent results. The handrail I find crucial to help guide your eye through the image and make sense of it.
