Firstly this is an absolutely stunning photograph that caught my attention right from the start
There is a quality to this photography that is magical, and the way the bridge fades slowly into what I assume is fog gives the appearance that it continues for ever, and in a way giving hope for the unknown. The darkness that the bridge stems from also gives an illusion of hope, from dark to light.

The composition is exceptionally well done, as the bridge fades to white there is a support beam that draws the eye towards it, centre in the photo give it weight which is especially needed with such a light photo.

My only suggestions is there is a slight horizontal line across the bottom of the support beam which draws my eye down, when I feel it should be drawn up.

Over all it is a beautiful, well composed piece that deserves more attention.

Thank you for your critique, I really appreciate your opinion as it helps with my continued improvement in my work.

Your analysis of my image is excellent and consistent with my own vision too.

This piece is my first commissioned artwork and has received so much positive feedback which I have found extremely encouraging.

I deliberated over the horizontal line which appears in the image. I felt that this played an intrinsic part of my vision which is that strength is built on solid foundations and like the bridge, no matter how big we may get in life we all need support from those around us from time to time if we are to make it to the other side.

That said, I'm happy you liked my work and delighted that you have chosen this image to feature on your group page.

Thank you :-D

Probably one of the best photos on DA ... or anywhere. Perfect "Zone" exposure, composition, and for *SaraJ3an ... that disturbing horizontal line is the horizon line, anchors the photo - without, the bridge would be "floating in space".

Love your gallery, man, gives me faith, reason to stay on this website, ignore the "less than wonderful" critics.

Yea baby!

Worth a DD.
Maybe leaving the sky white could effect even more minimalistic.
