Of the nine bridges crossing the Ohio River at Cincinnati, only one is purple. And only one is for people only. After a $4 million restoration, the former L&N Railroad Bridge between Newport and Cincinnati is now a pedestrian walkway. Officially named the Newport Southbank Bridge, the Purple People Bridge is longest connector of its kind in the country that links two states. Within a 10-minute walk from either side of the bridge you can: • Watch the Reds or Bengals at Great American Ball Park and Paul Brown Stadium. • Grab lunch or dinner at a wide range of restaurants, from the eclectic collection at Newport on the Levee to the newest sports on Cincinnati's Fountain Square. • Have a picnic at Cincinnati's Bicentennial Commons at Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove or along the floodwall in Newport. • Tour the Newport Aquarium or the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center near the historic Roebling Suspension Bridge.

The repeating girders of the bridge make for a superb graphical composition. The image has great depth and benefits from a fine ambient light and some interesting shadow play. Excellent colours and sharpness.

The POV is excellent and creates deepness. There is an interesting graphical effect with the girders. The light has been well controlled and the sharpness is good.
Have a nice Sunday

I like this beautiful perspective. A good composition which is very suitable for this kind of subjects.

an interesting soft purple color of this pedestrian bridge, which you have caught by means of a good framing to give a deep perspective of its metallic structure, under a good light that was creating a few nice shades.
I love the strong graphism of the composition.

Nice capture of this steel construction in Cincinnati. The purple color softens the harsh image of steel.
TFS and best regards

Dobar tekst o gradu i mostu ...
Lep pogled na most sa vrlo interesantnom metalnom konstrukcijom, lepa fotografija.
Dobar snimak, perspektiva i prikaz lepim bojama.
Lepa staza na zeleznickom mostu za pesake i prelaz preko reke.
Imajte lep dan za odmor.
Good article about the city and the bridge ...

Nota e foto.
Sembrano due ponti ...quello "vecchio" ex ferroviario" adesso pedonale e a fianco uno per
"metropolitana" metropolitana leggera ..E' bello vedere molti passanti tranquilli senza paura delle auto.

Really purple color to this iron structure, Lakshmi, and you found a bright day to show this.
POV selected well, good depth till far side on bridge, and very good clearity to a level of single wire...

Good use of diminishing linear perspective & vanishing point here with reasonable sharpness. I like the warm cold color contrasts between the fg yellow ochre deck of the bridge & the blue sky. Tfs!
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2011-11-21 8:34
a really superb one. Love the clarity and depth of this image. The textures of the bridge with those shadows added nice graphism here. Excellent shot with fine colours. Thanks for sharing.

Hi lakshmi. A great bridge construction. Here the architects have done a great job. You have photographed the bridge adequately. Fine composition and very nice light. Well done. Rgds wolfgang.
Have a nice WE
Angshu (56758) 2011-11-27 20:13
Nice deep perspective created by the bridge & the shadows. The girders create a strong graphic effect which I like. The converging perspective like a vortex in the deep end is something which works well here!

Nice backlights and good perspective on this excellent view.
Lovely colors and lively light.
Great depth of field.

Hello dear Lakshmi !
It is always very nice to see architecture treated like a living being. This bridge also could have met its end with the end of the train service. But this bridge has been renovated and has been given an even better purpose. A bridge is always a very nice metaphor for connection. Like this bridge, it connects two different states both symbolically and physically. And people can actually experience the living metaphor for connection. With all the steel parts and steel rivets, the bridge does feel old fashioned, but it is also a part of the charm it possesses. I am certain that you have enjoyed the bridge. The deep space presented in the photo does show us the beauty of it. The sunny weather further enhances the lovely photo. The puffy clouds seen through all the steel work is very inviting.
With my best wishes for you,
Have a very nice afternoon, Lakshmi
