Yes I can! =D I live about 45 minutes away from down town Philly, so I can say Susquehanna and Schukghyll (I'm just lost on the spelling =P) :dance:

This is my favorite of yours, so far. The water and bridge are very, very nice. It continues to grow on me.

This shot has great potential... I like what you're going for here.

A few notes... seems to be tilted but nothing a ccw rotate in ps wouldn't fix... the composition is also a little weak, that little shrub in the corner makes a nice reference for scale and depth but it seems so isolated there in the corner, perhaps a different angle would work... if you have the ability to shoot telephoto, you could back off the bridge farther and zoom in more, this would give you a more gradual angle on the bridge and you might be able to fit in some more reference subjects like the shore or more foliage... I would also pan up a tad to get the water line and the bridge centered more into the lower two-thirds of the image (I don't always follow the rule of thirds, but with this shot, it's probably for the best)... that would of course require some more sky action so hopefully the clouds are speaking nicely. ;) (Wink)

need to work on that sky a little more too, it's kind of blown out... a polarizer filter might help that a lot if that's a possibility for your setup, but so could different weather, perhaps overcast or stormy, perhaps even at a time close to dusk or dawn as well....

So.... some things I like... the shadows and highlights are always nice on water like this, very textured, I always love the way the sky reflects off the ripples... the bridge is of course an awesome subject and I like the way the shadows play on it which is one plus of the strong light... are there ever any watercraft around? Something like that would add a really nice touch to this photo... like an old boat to match the age of the bridge, or a new jetski to show a contrast in ages.......

Anyway, feel free to ignore my babbling altogether too... :) (Smile)
