    Roger, I like the first one much more than the second. The first has nice detail, nice reflection of the bridge arch and is lit very effectively to highlight what needs to be. The second has that tree cutting through the middle of the bridge and you have lost a lot of detail. I do really enjoy PWL, there are so many options and possibilities.

    I prefer the composition of the second image. That straight left side tree in #1 seems a little too intrusive.

    But the right side of #2 lacks any real interest. I wonder if cropping to a different size ratio and losing part of the right side might concentrate the interest a little tighter. Maybe 5 x 4 ratio?

    Some very interesting ideas with these shots.

    Jon I agree the tree blocking the opening bugged me also.

    Geoff thanks for the C&C I'll try playing with different crops and see how it looks.

    Nice work. This is something I'm looking to try my hand at.

    What kind of light did you use?
