A delightful capture Miriam, the eye is led along the red railings and into the capture. Lovely sky reflection and detail.

Yes, the reflections and red rail are superb, but also the shapes and angle of the shot. Delightful.

I'm with you Miriam. I would have darkened the sky slightly more and treid to get a slightly wider angle on the fence to show more of it.

I love the way that you have positioned the red handrail, and the colours are so vibrant. Lovely shot.

I feel that the sky is too light, but I believe that you have got the red rail spot on.

lovely clarity in the larger version, sure does look a pretty place, almost early 18th century, lots of reflections following round the bridge.

Miriam, it certainly does look pretty, and a very good image too, lovely reflection on the water and good colour.

Hi Miriam,
The red railings certainly lead the eye into the picture nicely.
The reflections are wonderful too.
Excellent work
