A shot of the Tasman Bridge, Hobart, Tasmania, taken from the Eastern shore of the River Derwent.

Great set in bnw. Nice touch of reflection, even if the water isn’t still.
Thanks – yeah it’s funny, there’s days when I would have sat for hours waiting for the water to be like a mirror, but I kind of like the slight ripple here (heaps better than the choppy days).
Lovely strong image in terms of light, reflections, shadows, tones etc. IMHO that is.
Very happy to have YHO Ranald
:-) happy to give it!
I doubt if anyone has captured this bridge quite this perfectly. brilliant.
Thanks for the comment Cameron. Without this turning into a mutual appreciation society, means a little bit more to me because I admire your work so much.
I think one of the things that I like in the photo that I’ve only noticed recently is that with a bit of imagination you can start to believe that the bridge is out in the middle of nowhere. I don’t think I noticed it before because my brain automatically adds all the bits around the fringes that it knows are there as well.
I totally agree SD, when I first saw the image it very much felt like it was isolated from the rest of the word. It’s a very dominant image.
This is stunning!!! Awesome reflection!! Awesome tone and contrast and perfect comp. Love it!! (:
beautiful image. such mood from a tough subject to shoot.
Greaet well done photo!
Hi Stephen, glad you liked it!
Such a strong image, beautiful framing.
Even knowing this area as well as I do, I still forget that there’s evidence of a city either side of this image! I like to imagine that the bridge has been picked up off the Derwent and dropped somewhere in the middle of nowhere.
Nice capture Rory; it’s interesting how the reflection has more contrast that the real scene.
Thanks Mui-Ling – the bridge looks very different when seen from more conventional angles.
