Brilliant. The curves of the bridge are so perfectly reflected in the river, and continued by the line of the walkway changing from concrete to what appears to be wood. This is fish-eye treatment at its best, rather than simple exposition for pure effect and little else.

PS - thanks for your comment on my market shot yesterday. As usual, informative in the extreme.

From the thumbnail I thought this was going to be a shot through a tyre - maybe something that I should try in the school playground WinkWink
Very striking picture Bill which works well as a mono still reminds me of a tyre though WinkWinkWink

An adventurous piece of processing here Bill, well done.

What excellent framing. I'm whizzing around that bridge like a death rider at the fair. Smile

Different and very effective, Bill. A lot of contrast to sort out as well even though a grey day. I like it.

Love the use of the fisheye here bill almost looks like a huge tyre going over the river.

You're telling me to not getting excited about curviness? Pshaw!

This is BRILLIANT, Bill.

Looking forward to more Smile

The extreme wide angle has really exaggerated the curve of the bridge - a brilliant shot, Bill, love it! Wink

I walk under this regular and sometimes think it would be a bit of a dodgy place at night, the exaggerated look of this image gives it that slightly sinister look I see in my mind.
Great photography Bill.

Unusual processing but the overall look is good with the use of the fisheye. Sorry to be so late Bill, missed this one.
