I've never seen this in reality but I feel as if I'm right there, standing just above this area with the reflected light bathing my face. It is a remarkable shot. I agree with the previous comments. A huge "wow factor"!

Brent, I agree with Bruce, a most striking image.

Very other worldly Brent. Looks like a mining colony on Mars! Great comp,

Well, I have never been there, but for me this gives a really strong sense of place, a feel of a slightly decaying industrial town but still vibrant at the same time. The composition and lighting are first rate, I particularly like the heavy winter sky and the mosiac pattern of the ice in the river. 11/10 !
Did I mention I like it?

I thought it was the other bridge farther west and from the other side of the river

For me it's the colour and the tone that make this a great photo.

I'll have to drive down to check but think he must've climbed a pole.

Awesome, awesome shot! I know because I have seen this place many times and trust me everyone, this is an amazing shot of the railroad bridge that crosses the Mississippi River! How on earth did you get a shot from this angle. I've only seen it from the ground just out of view on the right bottom of this shot. This is really beautifully done Brent and those breaks in the ice make great patterns that would be right up your alley. I love this and can't wait to show it to Marv tomorrow.

A real geometric feast of a comp. The balance is perfect and the warm tones remind me of whiskey in winter. Excellent photo......
