    There is so much good happening here with all the complex lines, shades, colors etc. Very nice image - perhaps better for "Geometry"?

    alex ringer said (24 Jul 2008):

    Quite an impressive information you've supplied us. That makes your photo a documentary image and I hope the bridge will stand un damaged for a long. long period.
    My father studied mechanical engineering in the early '30th in Gdansk and the first bridge he participated in planning is the only metal bridge in Poland surviving WWII. You can still see it near Krakow.

    I've found out that you're attracted to the light in the end of the tunnel in many of your photos. This one is a good sample for it.
