View Full Version : Forth Bridge, Edingburgh

The Forth Bridge is a cantilever railway bridge over the Firth of Forth in the east of Scotland, to the east of the Forth Road Bridge, and 14 kilometres (9 mi) west of central Edinburgh. It was opened on 4 March 1890. It is often called the Forth Rail Bridge or Forth Railway Bridge to distinguish it from the Forth Road Bridge although it has been called the "Forth Bridge" since its construction and had for over seventy years the sole claim to this name.

The bridge connects Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh, with Fife, leaving the Lothians at Dalmeny and arriving in Fife at North Queensferry; it acts as a major artery connecting the north-east and south-east of the country. Described in the Collins Encyclopaedia of Scotland as "the one immediately and internationally recognised Scottish landmark",[1] it may be nominated by the British government to be added to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Scotland.[2] The bridge and its associated railway infrastructure is owned by Network Rail Infrastructure Limited...

Have I ever ripped an image to pieces.. ..

I was going to compliment the way you've balanced the artificial and ambient lighting in the first shot, particularly as it's something that's not often seen on this forum. Most people go for the easy night shot, rather than the more difficult dusk shot. The second shot has the more dynamic composition (the dead space to the right of the nearest pier in the first shot weakens the overall impact) and the same spot-on balance between artificial/ambient, I think cooling the white balance closer to the first shot would help just take the edge off the sodium orange and the horizon could be tweaked level.

I was going to say all that.. but instead I'll just summarise that they're all crap, if that makes you happier ;)

Fantastic shots....... incidentally does anyone recall the series of pound coins that depicted all the great bridges?

lovin this set like the night shots lighting seemed perfect.

ps thought this had been moved by a bunch of geordies ( auf wiedersehen pet )

think that was the Middlesborough transportation bridge they shifted to Arizona! A far cry from the Forth bridge, but an engineering marvel all the same!
