Very colorful and interesting perspective.
27 Dec 2009 6:37am
Another POV with flourishing colors. The bunch of golden leaves seem to hold the bridge !

I like the way the yellow leaves frame the photo and put the brilliant light in it. Beautiful perspective.

@Momo: Classic for the Pacific Northwest.
Beautiful orange and blue. You are on the better side :)

Flamboyant colors and the perspective of the bridge that carries into the city. Everything is bathed in bright light is beautiful and the light is good amidst the gray today. Good week, Jack, before switching to 2010.

Beautiful no matter what and that golden tree, is pure gold in any colour ;)
27 Dec 2009 1:24pm
Very nice angle, a great view on the city.

What a beautiful scene! Hope you and your family are having a wonderful time together! Merry Christmas!

Excellent perspective. Brilliant colors in that tree.
27 Dec 2009 1:54pm
Very nice composition work and amazing colors between the city and bridge and the trees!
27 Dec 2009 2:38pm
I like this version with its nice autumn look. The bridge stretches across and takes us right into the city. Very nice.
27 Dec 2009 2:52pm
such a spectacular shot. it really draws you in . . .
27 Dec 2009 3:03pm
Great perspective and colors. There are some fun details to explore, such as the bus on the bridge.
27 Dec 2009 3:19pm
@dabbler: Better bus shots in couple of the other photographs in the series.
I love yellow, very nice colour and shot
27 Dec 2009 3:37pm
I thought this looked familiar. I've been here! Happy Dec. 27th, Jack.
27 Dec 2009 5:31pm
Beautifully composed picture, with great angle showing the size and beauty of the bridge :))
27 Dec 2009 5:44pm
@MARIANA: Merci. Now I am better!!
That is a wonderful shot. Beautifully composed.
27 Dec 2009 6:25pm
This is going to be interesting, Jack. The first shot is an absolute gem, great colour and perspective.
27 Dec 2009 6:33pm
A very attractive capture ... will look forward to the variations.
27 Dec 2009 7:44pm
Wonderfully composed, and brilliant colors......look forward to seeing variations.......
27 Dec 2009 8:13pm
@Susan: The B&W variations are mainly for experimentation and fun.
you've picked a nice "bridge" between the city and nature, jack!
27 Dec 2009 8:15pm
@marc battault: The nature part is a little bit deceptive, Marc. It was just a gorgeous tree next to a huge, wonderful esplanade on the east side of the river.
Couleurs et cadrage superbes! Bravo"
27 Dec 2009 8:22pm
Great perspective. A wonderful shot, Jack!

Pretty scene, Jack. In 1995 I ran the Portland Marathon and remember crossing a bridge like this in the last mile or so. Of course I know there are tons of bridges in Portland (I'll never forget the killer bridge at about mile 17 that was preceded by a long, steep hill). Most of the last eight miles were along the bluffs above the Willamette, and even though my focus was elsewhere, I remember thinking what a pretty city Portland was (and no doubt still is).

@Gary Hart: Our son, Mark, has run the Portland Marathon a couple of times and plans to do it again this October. He also put his name in the hopper for the NY Marathon. (In 1995, we were still living in San Rafael. It was great because all of the kids loved to come visit, i.e., dump their bags and head for the City.)
Lovely colors and beautiful framing.

jolie lumière dans cette composition. Happy new year.
