angle works really well
I like the repetitive patterns
exposure good, but there are some areas that are a little dark and the sun spots could be a little darker
DOF- the deep DOF works well, but I'd like to see a shorter one so #1 the stuff inbetween the archs isn't in focus and #2 so the patterns disappear into non-focus. BUT that is just a different way of doing it i'd be interested in.
the posts on the left and right are blury and I would of given it a bit more exposure so the inside of the bridge was darker making you look for the detail instead of seing it like it is now, most of the things I said are personal opinions exept the blury posts a larger photo would give a better judging cause you can't see too many details
maybe if you upped the saturation, the color seems a little bland.
Not too shabby! I like how the vanishing point is off to the side, rather than dead down the middle. That leads the eye nicely through the frame. I think it could use an extra something though...I dunno, a person walking down the bridge, a beam of sunlight coming through a broken shingle...something to give it one last bit of oomph.
Also, I totally agree that the saturation needs a boost. Then again I tend to lean toward that 'velvia' look.
I wonder if this shot would get too confusing and jumbled if it were converted to black and white and the contrast boosted some??
Is this bridge in Guelph, Ontario by any chance?
