This is Winnipeg's Provencher Bridge lit up at night. While the auto white balance feature of my camera didn't get it quite right, I was pleased with the result, as the bridge appears gold in colour.

welsome to trekearth shona, hope you like this site
the photograph is beautiful; your exposure seems to be just perfect, i wish you had a wider lens though, that ways your composition could have just a little stronger
anyway good first upload.

Excellent debut photo, Shona. Welcome to TE! You chose the perfect time of evening to shoot this, using a dramatic sky as a background to the stunning lights and lines of the bridge. Very well done. Keep posting.

Welcome to Trekearth! I've only been to Winnipeg once, and that was about 14 years ago; but we did have a boat tour down the river- heading through the locks etc. But I must admit, I don't recall this bridge? Is it a fairly new addition?
As you mentioned, your camera did not read the white balance correctly, but to be honest- I think it worked in your favour. I like the color.

Welcome to TE, nice piece of modern architecture with clean lines. Night picture well exposed.
Sorry I just ran out of points: tomorrow I'll be back

Well, Shona, you come in here with a bang! What a great shot, rich in detail and colour. You clearly got the right time of sunset to capture a very well balanced image. Welcome and thanks for sharing this one!
