The Pine Bank Bridge is a cast iron bridge and extends towards Heckscher Playground at Central Park. It was first built in 1861 by J.B. and W.W. Cornell Ironworks then was renovated in 1984, as it had fallen into disrepair over the years.
Its intricate designs make it a must-see for those interested in architecture.
With its 80-foot span carrying pedestrians over the bridle path 11 feet below. The Pine Bank Bridge itís one of five of the original seven cast-iron bridges remaining in Central Park.
It is located in the west side of Central Park at 62nd street. I used my wife here as model. I wanted to visit the Bow Bridge but the time and very cold day don't allowed it.

This bridge is not as famous as Bow Bridge, but it is also beautiful. I like your B/W presentation, showing the arch of the bridge and the wooden floor. Your model is perfectly placed. :-) This bridge is very elegant and your photo captures the feeling of Central Park very well.

Great note and excellent picture to illustrate this fine old bridge, I love the level of detail in the ironwork, and how it reaches off into the distance. The lady in the shot and the fact that it is black and white makes me feel a little sadness as I look at the shot, well done on getting powerful emotion in the scene too.
All the best

Excellent monochrome photo with well balanced composition. The framing is IMO excellently chosen, the black and white is also very well controlled, bright and dark at the same time. The perfectly lighted walkway bridge is the main focal point of this photo. There is a great use of depth of field to hold the viewer on the bridge as the perfect view through the bridge to the trees, and the excellent lighting has allowed for very good light contrast. The overall impact is very strong. Very well done.

hi andre. such a beautiful photo for a b&w admirer! good composition with the diagonal elements of the bridge, big trunks on the left and the bare trees on the right. the hat of the figure works so well to balance the grey scala with its pure white.
