Hmmm. The depth of field trick is cool, as always, but to be honest... I think I prefer the original (don't hate me!). I guess you were going for a more realistic view by decreasing the contrast, but it looked really *cool* all bright, colourful and overexposed-looking. The red was so vibrant, and the brightness added to the sense of speed and motion. If you ask me. Well, just my two cents. The focus is cool though. I just think brighter was better. It was very striking.

Oooh, lovely. I have to say though, I think you should change the undertones in the buildings, they're a bit greeny-yellow, I think they would look better red-ish. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the purple undertones in the lights though. You changed the focus on the shot? The focus is reminiscent of your micro series.

i've been planning to take a similar shot for ages now. There's no excuse really, considering I walk across the bridge every day!

Well done!

Very nice indeed. It does seem slightly overexposed...but that seems to bring about some beautiful colors (namely the blue on the bridge cable supports).
