The suspension bridge over the Penobscot river mouth at Bucksport, Maine. I liked the double - lateral and vertical - symmetry in this picture shot from the window of our hotel room... The early morning, very quiet wheather made it a special moment. Hope you like it as much as we did at the time...

Hi Anne,
this is the perfect view and it realy seems, you put a mirror between ;-)
Only the small details like the ship, the truck and the hill are showing, it's real.
You had a good eye to find this motive, I enjoyed it very much, thanks and greetings

So observant so early in the morning!
How lucky that the crane-drivers felt in a co-ordinative mood when they ceased work.
The boat is an important element.

Great shot! I love the reflexions... If you see some of my pictures you will see why! Marie-José

Image très douce, équilibrée qui dégage de la tranquillité ! Sympathique atmosphère !


Great composition with the reflection. Lots of interesting detail. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Anne Marie,

Beautiful capture and well done on the composition. Excellent work.


Wow Anne, this is just a great picture. I can imagine it hanging on your wall somewhere.

Lovely mirror image Anne, great colours, clarity and composition.
Thanks for sharing.

Hello Anne Marie.
I see English is no problem for you. lol
Very good shot, with the still water and the truck on the brigde makes the picture.

Double symmetry indeed, Anne Marie. Very nice pov and well cropped. Only pitty is the boat on the right. It doesn't belong there for the symmetry. But still very nice. I'm out of smilies, so points next time.

Best regards,


P.S.: I saw that I critiqued a time ago your picture "Fishing Sunset" but I had not gave points. Also for that one points next time.

Hi anne you have taken this shot with excellency of capture and views. it is really one of the most beautiful picture. Thanks for sharing.

Je l'avais manqué celle-ci, Anne-Marie. Tu publies si peu souvent que l'on peut les manquer. Mais l'attente en valait la peine. Une autre très belle photo avec une très belle symétrie. Belle observation et belle capture de cette atmosphère un peu brumeux et de cette superbe réflection du pont et du petit bateau. Bravo!

Indeed an almost perfect symmetry. right spot at the right time anne. you have captured it well.

Very well spotted complste symmetry!! And Ilike how theboat the down right breaks it a bit. Very good work. TFS

Like the symmetry and the reflection on the calm water here ..very well seen and captured !!

Hi Anne Marie, beautiful photo with those lovely reflections. Morning for me is the ideal time down here in Tasmania. There is something about the light which makes everything so clear.
Great presentation. TFS
PS Many thanks for the comment

Wow...Superb Reflections and feel to this. The water being so calm helps. Well done and thnx for sharing


Hi Anne,
I like this very quiet and peaceful morning. The boat on the right side is very cute.

this is really a super lucky shot, very well done.

happy new year

I must say that your sense of observation is fantastic! My first thought was that the symmetry was achieved during heavy postprocessing. After careful examining of this picture, I am amazed of how perfect this natural symmetry is! Great work Anne!


Happy New Year!

Hi Anne,

Fantastic composition! The river water is like a mirror! It's a very sharp and vivid photo. I like it a lot. :)
Well done for your work!

Très bizarre ces reflets et il fallait les voir n'est-ce pas? Bon oeil, bien fait!

Hi Ann,

Nice doble-symmetry! Great composition. Nice sharpness.
I discover your gallery, a few phots but very, very wonderful.

A great view. Very nice landscape to catch. It's a pity that the reflection of the bridge is not sharper... Very well done!

Cette photo est d'une grande netteté et elle est vraiment particulière avec cette réflection qui donne un intérêt certain... bravo...

Great capture of reflections. I like the compo and POV but colors look just a bit washed out.


Hi Anne,

Ummm!! Very nice double symmetry. Creative POV. I like the composition and colors. TFS.


Hi Anne,
I think the construction work is not completed at the time you have taken this shot because I can see some cranes here (may be tower crane).

Very calm & glassy water beautiful foggy morning & a nice background; what else a person need to call it a 'great image'.

Thanks for sharing this.


C'est d'un calme incroyable pour la surface de l'eau! Excellente capture. La brume est belle pour le mood lointain. Arme à double tranchant, dommage qu'elle affecte légèrement... à peine... La vivacité des couleurs sur l'eau... On se rend immédiatement compte que c'est la brume car le bateau lui est plus près et d'uen clarté!

Hi Maam, great daytime reflection of the bridge there. Good POV and also suitable framing. However, the bridge is a little hazy from far. TFS anyway.

Hi Anne Marie, Agree with your note, the symmetry is very strong and doubly effective. The boat in the foreground adds some scale to this massive bridge. Well portrayed from this POV. Murray.

Beautiful shot with an excellent symmetry. The little boat in the foreground adds quite a punch to this already great shot. Beautiful reflections.
Welle done Anne Marie.


Superbe image.
Réflexion, calme, couleur, brillance, cadrage.
Tout est bon !


Impressionnantes les deux grues qui surmontes les piliers de parts et d'autres du pont.
Le bateau on dirait une maquette, tant il est petit en proportion avec ce pont.
Félicitations bon cadrage.

Salutations de Bernard L.
