I think at the end of the bridge there should be some bigger object. The bridge would lead to that, that is what is missing in the picture i guess

Its just not interesting, sorry. Ya can't polish a turd. Don't obsess over some boring bridge. Find better subject matter....and better lighting conditions. :)

How come you haven't posted any pics? I was going to look and see if your photos could show me how to take some good pics but I can't find any of yours.

I find that BW image more interesting.the other one is better too but it doesnt keep the end of the bridge in the frame to give your eye a vanishing point. cool blog you got going on too!

Bridges are known to take us somewhere and in this case that would be the little sign that takes up about 1/50th of the frame. So in terms of arriving somewhere we are left wondering what the significance of the destination is. Much of what strikes me eye first is out of focus which is distracting. Obviously the focus is on the destination at the other end of the bridge. The sky does not add much here unless the tiny sign is a part of the sky as the reason we need to cross the bridge.

Good comments GtrPlyr and jetcode.
Agree with OP in first post - ".......but I think its missing a subject"
Made worse with OOF foreground and nothing at the other end.

Thanks. Set it up myself, loaded WordPress myself and have my own free web provider I use. Doesn't cost me a penny!
