[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I visited Scotland over Christmas and took this. I went to North Queensferry one early morning to take photos of the iconic Forth rail bridge (details of this can easily be found on the internet). I know this has been photographed hundreds of times before, but this is my attempt.

ISO 800 (I used a tripod but chose this for a fster shutter speed)
1/5 sec

Sorry, that I am the 21st visitor and I have to write some thing though my Latin is not that perfect just time pass but here beside the 1/5 sec shutter speed the water is frozen that should be be floating according to the rule as many follow, over all nice shot.

Ciao BobSmith!

Fine bridge.
Fine blue hour.
Nice colors.
Good composition.
Gorgeous view.

Well done!

Bom dia,Robert,
For me this is one of your great photos, worthy to figure in the gallery of Hors-Concours, here in TL.
There is no room for improvement.
Best wishes for 2016.

Ciao Robert, fascinating blue hour, great perspective on beautiful bridge, excellent exposure, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, Happy new year my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Robert.
I really love this one your colors are beautiful and a very nice composition.
I myself would have crop the photo just a little to have less water in the for ground and make the bridge look even longer.
All the best wishes for 2016.

Kind regards Huub.

Hi Bob,
I have seen quite a few shots of this wonderful bridge but this is one of the best
well done, worth the early morning rise

Hi Bob,
A fantastic result, composure, exposure and details, fantastic camera work on this one. All the best to you and the family for 2016.
PS. Thanx for your appreciated critiques.

Hello Robert! Please understand this is my opinion only and not meant to offend. Many may disagree with me anyway. Unfortunately, the composition is unbalanced, does not hold the horizon. In addition, the picture seems too dark. You have left little dots on the right side of the photo. You should clean these spots before hanging pictures on the TL. Fine bridge!
