Nice shot, Patti.

Colours look good good.

Really liking how you composed this one.

Got a creative suggestion for you, if I may.

That of employing a B & W conversion adjustment layer (in Photoshop particularly, and I would imagine for other image editing programs/software).

Can always start with the 'default' adjustment.

Then.. experiment with the various colours. Finally changing the Blending Mode to that of Luminosity.

Something for a rainy day, perhaps?

That said..

+favs for me.

Thanks for sharing this one with us. :o)

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.

Really nice. The silvery white color plus the sky and water make the whole thing pop.

This current contest is going to be a rough one to judge.The deep blue/black of the river does a great job of accentuating the bridge and apartment structures.

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
