The Øresund Bridge, which opened up for traffic in July 2000 is unique since it connects two countries, Denmark and Sweden.
For more than a houndred years the two countries planned a fixed link between Malmø and Copenhagen but one obstacle after another graveled the plans, until now. The bridge is a combined bridge and tunnel and one of the largest constructions in Europe with its 8 kilometre bridge, 4 kilometres artificially made island, called Pepparholmen, and a 4 kilometres long tunnel.
The Øresund Region is one of today's most important and dynamic areas in Europe in terms of growth and environment. The bridge is only the beginning ! Within a radius of about 100 km there are roughly 3.5 million people.
You can cross the bridge by car or take the Øresund-train to the former Danish town Malmø, in less than 20 minutes!

Great choice of using tilt. The tilt emphasizes nicely those very effective diagonal lines. Very interesting mix of horizontal, vertical and diagonal line in generally.
I also like how all those little figures of people – and many other details, too – can be found in the image. Well done.
This shot could work also in B&W – I posted a WS...

I tend to agree with Olli in this one; The tilt is almost fondamental here.
Very well done.
