This is a colour version of the pic I took along time ago, but minus the boat, I hope you like it just as much
I took this picture in Suma, it was very near to Kobe, I found out that this bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world, I think it was built in 1998, but I will verify that for you.
It is the Akashi Kaikyo bridge.
Location: Kobe and Awaji-shima, Japan
Completion Date: 1998
Cost: $4.3 billion
Length: 12,828 feet
Longest Single Span: 6,527 feet
Engineer(s): Honshu-Shikoku Bridge Authority
If we compare this bridge to the Golden gate bridge in San Francisco, the bridge is only 8981 feet in length.
The building ont he right is the only museum that centres on Sun Yet Sen, the famous Chinese man that wanted to over throw the corrupt Qing Dynasty with the help of the Japanese.
I hope you like it

Excellent perspective with the bridge going through the composition.
The light is really good too.
I like the mood.

Wow! Another extreme engineering work you've presented to us, Daniel! Very good POV, and the building at left side sure makes it lovelier. Sharpness is very good as well! rgds.

Excellent perspective, and you have caught the bridge in a calm and pensive mood with the gentle mist and sober colours of sky and water. The juxtaposition of the interesting buildings foreground right add to the perspective.
Your very informative note is greatly appreciated.

Good version also the coloured one. Good shooting position gives fine depth and perspective. The greyish weather is for this compo a good detail.

What great perspective here with the bridge, also on the end the fog, wonderful picture I like the construction with the different lines Daniel, excellent job here!
mortijo (12828) 2005-02-26 11:18
An absolute topper. A dark, mysterious mood. The angle of the bridge gives a lot of depth to the photo. Great note, thanks for sharing.

I like this version Daniel. Good point of view and this looks likie a very beautiful piece of architecture.
Kolyamour (1760) 2005-02-26 12:02
Amazing construction! Beautiful picture was made in so cloudy weather... I've sent a workshop, hope you like it.
Thanks for share.

Hi Daniel, Suspension bridges are beautiful in nature because of the elegant looking. Your POV has made the bridge nicely standout. I like the "endless" effect the fog made to this photo. Well composed. Thanks for your notes about the museum

Outstanding piece of engineering. San Frans' bridge distinguishes from others because of the rustic paint on it. This however, is just amazing. Love the angle and fog, and serenity. Thanks

Good composition, Dan. The bridge fading into the mist makes a great effect, and the museum building in the foreground is a wonderful addition. Looks good in color and with the slightly dim light.
robiuk (10807) 2005-02-26 16:33
Beautiful compo and atmosphere created by overcast sky and mist, Daniel.
I like the architecture of the museum and it position - quite unique!
apazevedo (5469) 2005-02-26 18:13
A very nice bridge and also a beautiful picture, Daniel! I liked a lot that fog and the curve of the bridge, as well as the inclusion of the museum on the photo. A very pleasant composition!
alvaraalto (6177) 2005-02-26 18:32
You can almost call the picture the disappearing bridge. A little bit hazier and you didn’t see the other side. I think your right this is at the moment the bridge with the largest span. You can compare it the best with the Storebelt bridge in Denmark. With a little less span between the pylons, but much more water to span. Storebelt bridge
ChrisJ (105379) 2005-02-27 3:46
Moody & atmospheric, with a good, strong diagonal in the composition. Excellent sharpness & pov. An informative accompanying note. Good work!
sandip (3492) 2005-02-27 3:56
A very nice view with a foggy atmosphere.I liked it Daniel.Also thanks for ur note.
Steft (5975) 2005-02-27 7:16
Oh wow, very special brigde, and again a fog here. The dark buildings on the foreground and the vage shapes of the mountains on the background make this photo even more special.
Nice work here!
elihesamian (26149) 2005-02-27 7:36
I saw that version,and I like both,too,very nice and excellent powerful perspective you managed in this great composition,and a strong thing is the foggy misty depth that the perspective goes to there,nicely done,Daniel,very well composed.
Jeppe (18654) 2005-02-27 14:24
Oh fine follow up and A nice supplement to the bridge we got in Denmark - I beleive it was the largest until this one came around - Thanks Daniel - a fine job and note.
bantonbuju (51789) 2005-02-27 14:25
daniel its an amazing shot of an amazing place and thing; conditions helped to make this pic an exceptional artwork; great!
avigur_11 (22087) 2005-02-27 16:39
A very deep perspective along this beautiful bridge. The curved lines of the supprt cables and the bridge's body create a very dynamic and elegant image. I like very much this small cute green house. Excellent picture, Dan.
Stepan (27210) 2005-02-27 17:03
It's a great POV... We almost can think the bridge is endless !
cmartos (242) 2005-02-27 17:41
A great composition Daniel! The immense bridge line leading to the misty background is impressive! Almost monchromatic, which increases the particular mood. I like this version. Excellent work!
maphoto (8082) 2005-02-27 18:31
Very nice bridge Daniel shot from a great angle, excellent light considering those thick clouds, well seen.
Cos (1562) 2005-02-28 4:12
Great shot - good perspective to get all of the bridge considering how long it is! Good exposure in what looks to have been difficult conditions. Well done.
cessy (13647) 2005-02-28 5:59
it's really wonderful. excellent angle, and magnificent architecture. like the color version too.
pamastro (7290) 2005-03-03 0:46
I like it in color a bit more than in sepia. There are some nice subtle shades missed in the sepia that are seen here. The point of view is excellent as in the other giving a very giant and long feel as it jumps across the strait. Perhaps it could use a bit more contrast to make it stand out more with greater depth. And it could be skewed a bit, although I like the way the tower leans in and adds a twisting sort of feel over the long sweeping cables. And you used the foreground to lead right into the bridge from all parts. Nicely taken.
lukaszb (338) 2005-03-03 15:41
magnificent pic of a huge bridge!
i like this building under it
tward007au (57) 2005-03-11 18:01
The distance between the supports is amazing isn't it. Great photo under unusual lighting.
Thanks for sharing.
