Same thing happened to me, Nikki - this beautiful bridge popped up on the contest page and I just had to comment - It's, without doubt, the most outstanding capture I have ever seen anyone do of a bridge on BP - fantastic work, both on the capture and your excellent treatment...well done and Bravo!

I think the lines of the new pedestrian bridge across the Missouri River between Omaha, NE, and Council Bluffs, IA, are just lovely. I set the white balance at tungsten when I converted to get the blue tones, used a transform tool to straighten, and applied a Topaz Adjust effect at reduced opacity to bring out the cables.
