The bridge in the center and its reflection create an interesting sort of symmetry. The scene is just beautiful. Great shot :D.

As you said : "food for the soul".
Sky and it's relection - a roof both above our heads and under out feet.
A brige just to suggest a moment of suspension, of breathing all this wonder inside.
Amazing and stuck to my retine for a few days. Can I travel there, at least in my sleap?

The reflection in the water is absolutely perfect !
In my view, I should have use another framing, maybe cut a bit of the top part of the photo to make the reflection stand out from the rest of the photo. ;)

But you really think I should delete the symmetry of the clouds and its reflection...? The symmetry is quite important for its overall balance IMO, and to get the right moment to get it all together into one frame like this, was for me a big bonus, I waited for almost one our for the clouds to form to the right shape. I actually did shoot another version with more focus on the reflection btw, and a bigger focus on the bridge, but it didn't work out as well as this one and it kind of lost its big-picture-purpose and much of its charisma IMO. But your input is very much appreciated, and I might be wrong of course, and I'll take your input into further consideration. Thank you so much! :)

I know that it is a hell of a work, you have done here. You deserve credit for it. :)
I just thought you could cut a bit of the real sky. My point is that symmetry does add a lot of geometric effect for sure. But as everything is equally positioned in a symmetric photo, nothing really stands out from the photo in fact.
Globally your photo is awesome but if you want the reflection to stand out from the rest of your photo, you need to break that symmetry. Do you see my point ?
Anyway, tt was just my opinion you know, the most important thing is that you love it ! :)

I would actually cut away a lot of the top and bottom to get more focus onto that lovely bridge!

bkm Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2005
I understand what you're saying, and you're right in the context of the bridge in itself. But if I cut away the top and bottom this picture I would lose some of its most important aspects in the "big picture": The symmetry of the mirror of the sky and the other surroundings. I was very careful to add this into my composition, so it would be a little self-undermining to cut it away just to zoom the bridge.

However, I do have other pictures of the bridge(s), zoomed in, which I may submit later :)

Thank you so much for your contructive comment, I truly appreciate it.
