Hello Les,

You've written a fascinating note about this bridge which, amazingly, dates from the 13th century. I presume that nowadays it is only crossed by pedestrians though I did find this photo on Wikipedia of a locomotive crossing it at one time.

Anyway, this is a beautiful "blue hour" shot from early evening in which the mixture of natural and artificial lights is truly delightful. Your longish exposure of one second has smoothed the water nicely though not too much. I like too your strong composition with the bridge itself forming a strong diagonal across the frame and leading us to the buildings and lights of the distant part of the township.

It sounds to me that, as in my case, your tripod spends most of its time in the boot of your car, but the handy lamppost has come to the rescue here and helped you produce a lovely image with gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.


Kind Regards,

Hi Claude, thank you for your warm critique.
I have to agree with you about b&w. The minute I posted the photograph and saw it in the gallery, it occurred to me that it would look more stark in b&w. Still, that's a good point; that's how you learn and develop.

Hope you are experiencing better weather than here, in the U.K.
Here, it is windy and incredibly wet!

Kind regards,
