I like the different between the type of bridges, beside style of construction. It is also show the difference of care some bridges gets over other ones. It actually conveys a social message. Very nice series.

i agree with ordo. i really like the compositions here, they just look really soft to me too.

the last one is quite an interesting and unique shot.

Hards,

The softness may be a compression issue. The size of the photo may be a tad big in width. at 1024x1024

Have to agree with the others about the softness... and the nice composition and variety of these shots! My favourite is #4... something different, I love it! The reflections in #3 are beautiful too!

Thanks guys, I'm still new on the image terms, When you say soft, You mean not sharp correct? Any idea what might have caused them to become soft, The original images are 3008x2000, since I do not have photobucket pro, The site automatically sizes down the images for me, could this be the problem? I am running in 1920x1080 on my monitor and I agree the first and third one are soft, but on my screen the second and 4th are crystal clear in HD. Just in the 4th one I was focusing on the big bolt of the bridge and had the f-stop pretty low.
anyways, Thanks for the comments and pointing out the softness. Criticism only makes people better

I guess the softness comes from the resizing... after I resize my shots, I ALWAYS do some "unsharp mask" in photoshop, I would really recommend that!

I upload them to photoshop as 3008x2000 but photobucket automatically resizes them for me. Should I just start sizing them down and doing the unsharp mask to prevent them from being soft? Thanks for the tip!
