Happy New year Jack with your family and your grandmother.

31 Dec 2009 10:53am

@Marie LC: Thank you. That line about "grandmother's house" is from a poem. At 74, I am the oldest member of our family. When it comes to New Year's celebrations, we always just stay put.

Betty from Phillipsburg, United States

My father always said... "Over the river and through the woods, and they still find us!" Since my parents moved to Pennsylvania from New Jersey over the Delaware River and a new house in the woods! :-) Happy New Year, Jack!

@MARIANA: And you are, indeed, a Soul Friend! And your work is a wonderful ongoing inspiration to all of us on Am3!! "The Blues Brothers" is a classic. What a tragedy to lose Belushi!

Hope you weren't driving!?! Nice shot--it really says "bridges"

31 Dec 2009 6:16pm

@Bill Laing: I was standing on the walkway across the Hawthorne Bridge.

SOUL AFLAME from The bosom of Mother Nature, United Kingdom

So many layers in a single shot, from the foreground leaves on the cars windshield to the bridges far and distance, the tree line and the bank mof clouds. A great observation, Jack. A toast to you this evening as my mind becomes numb with New year happiness and alcohol, I hope 2010 brings you health, love and happiness.

31 Dec 2009 6:18pm

@SOUL AFLAME: Thanks, Paul. Not a drop of alcohol for me since 1987; guess that I will have welcome 2010 clear-eyed :))

Slackwater - don from spokane, United States

An even better collection of bridges in this shot. I always like how the tinted windshields filter the light.
A very successful shot. Happy New Year...may 2010 be one of the best ever.

31 Dec 2009 7:35pm

Judy from Brooksville, Florida, United States

I really like your shot of the car with leaves and the bridges, however the river's emptying out to the left, Jack ... sorry, I think I have levels in my eyes.
Happy New Year ... we're staying in and safe!

31 Dec 2009 9:20pm

@Judy: Check it out now. The horizon of the river is level. The bridges create a slight optical illusion.

Happy new year 2010

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great processing in HDR to bring out the character seen in the clouds. And what normally would have been a shaded silhouette, the man's facial features in the nearby Toyota are quite detectable. Happy New Year!

31 Dec 2009 10:29pm

@Steven: No HDR, Steven. A little Tonal Contrast in Nik's Color Efex.

Denise from Duncannon, United States

Like how you captured this action shot. I wonder if this couple realizes that people all over the workd are looking at them? Just love those bridge!
