    The exposure on this one is a tough subject for me. The clouds appear to be a bit blown out and some of the shadows are a bit too dark. I'm guessing it was an extremely difficult lighting situation in general. Have you done a lot of work on this in photoshop?

    I did a lot of it with ACR, but that's it. It was a bit difficult, because the sun was behind the bridge.

    Could you possibly post the original, I think it might be easier to help you before it was adjusted...

    I'd be interested to see the original as well to get a better idea of what you started with.

    It's an interesting angle indeed, and the composition isn't too bad. I think the DOF is too shallow for this particular subject. My eyes are drawn only to the upper corner where the bridge is in focus and then away from the image. I definately prefer the b&w but the contrast is a bit odd mostly due to the blown out clouds which is accentuated by the treatment you gave it.

    I think the blown-out sky in the B&W makes it look kinda surreal in a way. I like the B&W one, but the color one isn't so interesting (although that's probably why you edited it in the first place ;) )
