As I have been messing around in editing and trying new looks…which bridge photo do you like best? Top/Cover A, B, C or D? If you’d care to tell me why, I’d love to hear but if not a simple A,B,C or D helps me 🙂 and thank you!!!

Thanks for visiting!

  1. I love this kind of bridge! Come to think of it, I just love bridges 🙂 🙂 I like the first simple shot a lot, but maybe it’s cropped too hard because I really like the third, not so much for the colouration as the extra ‘information’ that it gives. So, C for me 🙂
