Millennium Bridge, Salford Quays by fogz

japio: Hey Patty,
congratulations with the first place in the contest !
Well done!!

Foxfire66: Incredible "Prespective" Patti!
The eye is immediately drawn to the "curve".
Great Shot!

0930_23: I have seen several shots of this bridge and this is right at the top of the list Fogz. The Owd Timer and Richie are a couple I have seen. It makes a great photo subject. The daytime view with the blue sky is good. Many of the others are at night.

2nd place
Bridge to nowhere 2 by coram9

purmusic: Nicely done, Chris.

I did have the benefit of being able to see your image here, creative predecessor. And the changes/additions are indeed marked improvements in pulling the various imagery elements/facets together.

Particularly like the additional lighting in the lower right-hand side ... in and amongst that part of the terrestrial terrain.


The flare/celestial body.

Think I prefer the original on the notes of the brightness values.

The filled in depressions on the 'walkway'.

In my humble opinion, think you could have left some more delineation (revealed more of, in short) and light on/in those areas.

Although, since this is a work of sci-fi fantasy ... certainly not out of the realm of creativity with the rest of your piece. Simply trying to reference, in my mind, the dominant light source(s) and how they would fall/light ... that part of the landscape.

/\ Couldn't very well cheat you out of some words, now could I?

... ...

Don't answer that.


It is a good good piece. Markedly improved over the original and well deserving of it's place in the contest.

Congratulations and thank you for sharing this one with us. :o)
