Hi Ronald,
A lovely collage of these two contrasting bridges, although both serve for transportation! Perfect details in each and every one. Nice light and in both perfect POV.
Well done for this creative approach to this Friday's Theme 'Bridges'.
My best regards.

Hi Ronald,

2 for the price of 1! Nice dual entry in the Friday theme, & thanks for joining in the fun. (Thanks also to Daisy for setting it up). Good sharpness & composition in both & the old vs new theme adds an extra dimension. Have a great & rain free weekend!

A wonderful idea realized into a well executed collage work, Ron!

Great details in each shot and perfect POV for the work(s).
The sharpness and POV are excellent, and colors are natural.
The architecture of the bridges is wonderful and comparison is just marvelous.

A superb contribution to Friday's theme!

Hi Ron
you had a great idea linking the old with the new. the evolution of architecture shows two aspects that seem more far between them than 119 years. great work!

Awesome contribution to Friday's theme! I like their pov and both have good details. Very well done, tfs.

Nice collage of two photos, two different bridges, both good captured with good details and lighting

Ciao Ronald, lovely collage, great contrast between old and new bridge, in each photo excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

I used to live in Mission BC so am very interested to see the new bridge in Langley. Hopefully it will make quite a differenec in time saving for commuters. The bridge above is lovely covered bridge. Both shots are well captured although I would have preferred a colour other than red to show the years. TFS

Hi Ron,
Very nice presentation of the covered wooden bridge and the new architecture bridge,
Excellent details and point of view..
I like very much the covered bridge located in Cambridge (Vermont)
well done for the theme.

Hello Ronald :)

You registered yourself in the Friday subject fantastically.
The new bridge looks impressively, and old romantic and he seizes for the heart because I love such relics.
Very interesting, beautiful compositions and perfect realization.

With best wishes.

Oggi n° 5 ponti .

Hi Ron

Both have their charm and character, one has less maintenance costs. The composition of the two images is first class, the wires of the lower bridge stand strong against the reflected light. Well presented. TFS
