For months my hometown of Shoreham-by-sea, West Sussex, England, was split in two whilst construction of the new bridge spanning the River Adur was being built. Beset by numerous problems the project was finally finished and opened by HRH the Duke of Gloucester on the 13th November 2013. That day saw one of the most amazing sunsets over the town to herald the opening of the "Adur Ferry Bridge". (NB - this image of mine was published in a local Shoreham community magazine).

une très belle photo, les couleurs sont superbes avec de magnifique dégradés.
Les silhouettes sur le pont animent très agréablement l'image.

A superb capture, Brian. Great natural colours, even the purple below has a very natural feel to it.
The picture reminds of the countless pictures of those silhouettes walking on U Bein Bridge in Myanmar...but then in a more local version. It might make a great theme...
Enjoy your weekend

ripresa molto bella e particolare e postproduzione di altissimo livello che mette in evidenza la bellezza del colore e le silhoutte dei pedoni.
Ottimi il taglio e la nitidezza.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Wow, what a pink hour shot ! I could not resist the stunning and vibrant colours of this sunset. They interact so wonderfully with the texture of the water. The contrast of the silhouetted people against the glorious shades of pink of the sunset is very striking. The people on the bridge make a great focal point, and the way they are walking in different directions gives the picture a sense of life and movement. A wonderful evening shot.

You sure had captured an amazing moment with this purple reflected light. Amazing!
Enjoy a nice weekend.

non so da dove iniziare, ogni componente di questa foto ha una sua bellezza anche se presa singolarmente, per cui, l'insieme di colori, riflessi, silhouette e diagonali, ne fa una foto vincente.
L'atmosfera calma è rasserenata dal bel tramonto, ci offre una pace interiore molto profonda.

A lovely sunset and a lovely atmosphere. The people on the bridge make a fascinating set of silhouettes against that burnished red background. The lovely reflections bring a touch of the abstract to the scene.

The clouds and the sunset light, together with the silhouettes of people crissing the bridge, really make this picture look otherwordly. The execution is flawless, and the final effect is simply stunning.

Quite a specila shot. That diagonal bridge splits the scene well to the sky and wetland part. And people on it makes this even more interesting. Very special purple sky which also reflects on water.

Haven't they be lucky to be able to open up this bridge under such great conditions. The colors in this shot are amazing and the silhouetted people just add to the mystique mood of the composition.

The sunset you've shot is nothing short of magnificent. The silhouettes of the pedestrians adds drama against the spectacular cloud formation. I like your note for background information.
siudzi (34141) 2014-02-08 10:31
Wow! What a fantastic palette of intensive colors you have captured and achieved here! The scene looks absolutely stunning and eye catching. Love it! A perfect work.
kasianowak (9737) 2014-02-08 12:41
Excellent shot! I absolutely love the colours in the sky and water. Composition along a diagonal makes it a dynamic image.

On comprends facilement pourquoi ta magnifique photo a été publiée par le magazine local! L'image est très bien composée et les variétés de couleurs splendides.

ikeharel (74791) 2014-02-09 7:28
Good evening Brian,
People stroll along the bridge appear as silhouettes against the purple darkening sky. Fabulous compo., with the golden sky reflection over the river.
Interesting note written about the bridge on the inauguration, and cheers for your photo publication.
Impressive, intriguing and superbly collected photo posted here.
jcpix (13930) 2014-02-09 14:03
How are you this fine day? First off, a big 'ol handshake and 'congrats' for having this published..well deserved! It looks almost to good to be true, the colors are just stunning, and I can only imagine your rush and excitement to capture the fleeting pallet of colors and atmosphere. It has very much a tropical vibe, something I'd expect to see coming from Hawaii. I bet this would make for a super watercolor painting as well.
Now, I can't help but think of your divided town...good on one side, bad on the other....and just which half were you to be found?? :) Perhaps it had always been planned that way...keeping you maniacs away from general population? hehe
Just a terrific shot, the silhouettes help put life into the scene, and who wouldn't want to be out and about to enjoy this moment...lovely all the way around! Have a great week ahead B, take it easy.
Cheers from the dry side,
npecanhuk (75696) 2014-02-09 15:33
You had eyes and soul to see that wonder and did such a great photo job to capture it so perfectly!
Colors, exposure and composition are highlights here!
TFS - congrats,
Have an excellent week,

This is awesome, love the colours, great sunset for the bridge opening.
One for the competitions, I am a member of our local club Framlingham Camera Club, are you a member of your local one?
Well done, love it.

this is an extraordinary photo - my congratulations! The bridge which cuts through the picture is very interesting element especially with all these people watching sunset. Their dark silhouettes contrast with the sky in very nice way.
The mosaic of the colors is simply amazing. The mix of lilac, pink and orange shades created a real atmosphere here and the paddles under the bridge adds to the picture.
Thanks for sharing
