Lois said...

That is a fabulous capture Julie!

raf said...

Like your choice for monochrome on this excellent image, Julie.

Catalina Lemus Fett said...

Uh! The sky color is terrible ... It seems that there comes a storm but the man that is above, perhaps jogging, it makes you think that it's over is, a hope.

Very good photo.

Greetings!

Icy BC said...

Great shot. I like the way this looks with the runner behind the railing.

zemphoto said...

You captured a fleeting moment - excellent work. And, the dramatic sky looks in B&W to maybe threaten rain - or, maybe it was blue sky with wispy clouds, but you certainly captured a dramatic mood. Lastly, The lines from the railing and the support beams are great in that they lead the eye and frame the subject.

Woody said...

Very complex interactions with the structured (the horizontal bridge deck, the vertical fence, and diagonal cables) and the unstructured (runner and the clouds). Bravo!

Bengbeng said...

i like the way the railings dramatize the whole shot. the sky too contributes to the effect

Vicki said...

Hi Julie,

Love all the angles and the monochrome effect.

I've added your blog to my blogroll. Thank you so much for the warm welcome to the CDP community.

Cheers
Vicki

Nice choice for monochrome! I've just started converting some of my images to mono and am thinking about what makes a good b&w image. Shapes, lines, and values.

Excellent photo Julie. You captured this moment perfectly. Happy New Year. Thanks for visiting and your kind words. We are having such creative fun!

diane said...

A busy picture in shades of grey with the runner grabbing your eye.

Carolyn said...

Love the strong lines and various tonalities. Impressive photo.

Lene said...

Oh, Julie - I wish it was me you captured there - jogging on the bridge - I really need it after all the cristmasfood......

...Ok - it is salad tomorrow - and a long walk with my husband and my camera ;)

Happy new ear for you and your dear ones :)

Joan Elizabeth said...

The strong lines work well in B&W ... cloudy skies everywhere at the moment ... dense fog up a Katoomba this morning.

Paula said...

I've said before and I'll say it again, this is your new career. There's so much energy in your work, J, everything seems to be vibrating, really phenomenal.

Sally said...

Happy New Year!
Sorry for the tardy greetings - I'm on holidays! Far from the computer....
...and doing lots of swimming, naturally!

I like this in b/w, and with beautiful composition and all the "lines".

RuneE said...

He looks lonely up there among the steel and concrete. Beautiful lines and nuances of grey.

Vera said...

The black and white composition, the hard lines of the bridge all captured the effort of that runner, but without words. Great photo.

Kitty said...

He's so small against the enormity of the architecture surrounding him - such a lonely sport indeed!

Sean said...

This is a very nice shot Julie... Overwhelming the size of the bridge and the relative insignificance of the runner. It looks so over-engineereed....

christina said...

Oh, yes i like your picture very much. The huge bridge and the small man running.
Thanks för your comment!

ElinSire said...

I like this. All the lines, the grey sky and the jogger on the bridge. Great captured!

michael bird said...

A honey of a photo, Julie. The human up there gives it a special resonance for the likes of me.

Spiderdama said...

This is really good! One of my favorite this week:-)
Wish you a Happy New Year!

Shannara said...

Nice pic, great shot!

John`s Photography said...

Great capture!

Mona Sweden said...

I love this photo a lot. I have a weakness for structures, shapes, angles and lines. The beautiful clouds and the sun shining on the parapet completes the picture.

Clueless in Boston said...

Great shot. Wonderful lines.

Tulsa Gentleman said...

Lots of strong lines and an interesting angle. Good shot.

Regina said...

Great capture!

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

And, a Happy New year to you....

Great contrasts and lines in this picture! I just wish that the runner would have been a little bit closer to the banister.
