    Hey everyone, long time no post!

    Anyway here's a shot from tonight, unfortunately it was rushed since a security guard was sitting in his car waiting for us to leave (next to railroad tracks and therefore private property /sigh).

    Wanted a sweeping curve from top left to top right. Unfortunately I was cut short and only got 2 quick shots off. Besides that, dunno...

    I've taken shots underneath a viaduct before, but I was shooting the barn swallows and their multi-family housing units which looked like mud gourds.

    Often the bridges have architectural value, but I don't see that in this picture.

    The "sweeping curve" effect is shot too tight to be a real element as the only evidence of the curve is in the top right corner, and as previously pointed out the angle is a real distraction.

    Without seeing the structure it's hard to offer any suggestions, but you may want to hold the camera straight and shoot through the supports and compare the results to say the vanishing point in a line of telephone poles or the convergence of parrallel lines in the distance such as a railroad track. By the same token, you may have a total understanding of the afore mentioned elements and merely wanted the adrenalin rush of being stalked by a security guard. If that's the case, it seems your shot was a complete success.

    Keep shooting.

    Actually we had no idea it was private until the security guard showed up. The only way to get there is a public road...

    I was just being facetious about the adrenalin rush.

    No problem. I'm told frequently that it's sometimes difficult to tell when I kidding, even in a spoken conversation. I don't use the smiley faces and generally just bury my smart remarks in my post. Don't take me too seriously.

    Hehe, I agree with Terri. But I like it. It perplexes the mind. I looked at it and first thing I did was go cross eyes then turn my head, hehe. That is a very fascinating shot. Good Job.
