Under Humber Bridge

By Steve Cribbin
This was taken last week. I have been over to Barton many times over the years but have never taken any serious shots of the magnificent bridge. So, here is a variation on the classic shot. I have several shots of the boat approaching and passing under the bridge but this is the one that appealed to me most on first viewing. I may well post more of them.
The cloudy sky gave diffuse lighting that I thought would suit a gentle HDR treatment.
I have added a late variant - let me know which you prefer. Thanks.

f/10 @ 1/3 sec ISO 100

Jose, I have uploaded a variant that is an earlier shot before the boat passed under the bridge.

Thanks for the comments (and votes) everyone.

John, Thanks for your comments. I am really pleased that you like them.
I would not get too hung up on the number of votes and comments. This has got a reasonable level of attention because the thumbnail looks interesting. I should have added the variant at the start, but had not rendered the RAW file at that stage, only doing so after one of the comments.
Getting over 30 (quickly) would lead to more attention as some people look at the recent RCs before, or in place of, the main gallery.
Thanks for looking.

I like this image, v1 is the more interesting, I've seen the v2 composition quite a lot (have one in my pf too!)

Hope you get the attention it deserves.

Thanks Jon, I appreciate your comments.
There was nowhere as near as much grass in the area when I went compared to your image.

Difficult to choose a favourite between these two Steve because each has itís own qualities. Iím going for V2 because it comes across as the strongest picture for me and for it to work I feel it needed to be perfectly symmetrical - like this picture is. The strong converging lines of the bridge running into the distance with that lovely sky as a backdrop ticks all the boxes for me. Smashing.
