1st place
Millennium Bridge, Salford Quays by fogz

luckyshot: Patti - I like the tighter crop for the image of this bridge. The graceful curve of the bridge is echoed in the curve of the roof top of the nearby contemporary high rise building. The sky above and reflections in the water below provide a nicely balanced composition. Very well done! Thad

2nd place
Bridge to nowhere 2 by coram9

rvdb: Chris congrats on your win in the Bridges contest well done.


nessalovesnature: This is very deatailed and appealing to the eye in so many ways. Great creation! Perfect for the contest. Good luck!

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)
