A lovely depiction of winter Helen. The bare branches look good against the blue sky and the orangey brown vegetation looks well in the sunlight.

Good interpretation of the theme a lovely long exposure taken from an interesting POV and looks great in mono.

Really liking your shots of late Helen. They are right up my street.

Wild and broken really work well and the flat light / sky just adds to them. Ability is very 'Shoe-dini'! Winter is nicely captured with lovely light.
Book isn't a book or bridge I know but the image is excellent. Love it :clap:

Hecky Thump. That's a photograph and a half! The sky is magnificent! As good a photograph as I've seen, since I joined this forum. I love it.

Lovely image Helen, nicely processed too

Great clean image and processing
Hi Helen, lovely bridge shot.
Agree with all the above, plus love the sky in this great mono image.
Thats a cracker of an image, really nicely processed too. And, a good take for the theme.

Wow.. thank you all for some lovely comments on this image - I am truly humbled! :ty:
For once I used the super stopper as it was very bright today. Given the 4 mins exposure I only took the one shot (patience not being my virtue) and a couple with a big stopper. Have to say that I was really pleased with the result which I wasn't expecting as I've had one or two issues with the super stopper. I have now realised this is my own fault for leaving a polariser on at the same time...

Lovely shot, and you got 2 in 1 for the theme there.
Orwell (I s'pos he's an author not a book) and "The Road".
240 seconds. Blimey! The timers on my old canon only go to 30 secs. I'm guessing you had an intervalometer?
Thanks for the comments and well spotted - I didn't make the author connection as its named after the river. Slacking in my shoe horning ;)
Correct on the intervalometer - my trusty 5D II spends much of its time in Bulb mode these days. I do like a long exposure :wideyed:

Getting this one in extremely early... not quite an archive shot but taken two days ago so hope that's okay. However, it fits the theme and the technique so couldn't resist using it - especially as I had just been looking at it when I saw this weeks theme...

Yep - very nice shot!

It wouldn't be for me - but it isn't for me. There's only one real rule - have fun!

Works for me - there's enough detail in the shot that you can work out what's going on with enough movement to be interesting. Nice shot.
Quick off the mark (or well anticipated ;) ).
Liking the effect of the motion of the boats and ropes.
Very quick out of the starting blocks Helen :) I'm a fan of showing a bit of movement and the static posts hold it together. Very nice!
Book and Transport - great images for the last two themes.
Thanks for the comments folks.

Like the transport shot you got just the right amount of blur and like the milky water.

Book
When I used to live in Ipswich, I went over the bridge quite often, but never went down to River level.
Love the sky in this and the pov.

Transport
Really like this. Not much more to say really.
