Erasmus Bridge by Drummyralf Erasmus Bridge by Drummyralf
A shot of the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. If it looks familiar: this is the place where the Red Bull air-races are held every year.

Another shot that I liked more in Black and White rather then the orangy night colours. Normally I'm not really into architecture stuff, but this is one I just had to shoot, since it looked so awesome at night.

Wow you really have been busy taking awesome photos, haven't you? ;) i think this one is especially interesting- i particularly like the combination of the diagonal lines on the bridge, and the horizontal line (a little bit below 3/4 of the way down), set against the vertical lines reflected in the water. Very geometric and cool! I also love it's a-symmetry, it makes it very interesting to look at. it's a very clear photo, which is very nice, but i especially love the composition of it all! overall i suppose the point i'm trying to make is: fabulous job, Drummy! must fave! :D

Thank you ^^

The biggest problem was that only my friend had a reliable tripod, so I had to shoot with a bag of rice under my camera :P Still worked ^^

Nice resourcefulness! You sure didn't let being tripodless get in your way. one question though: why rice? :P

Well, it wasn't exactly rise (to be exact: Cherry seds) but "ricebags" are commonly used in the world of photography. They're a stable underground, and it's easy to move your camera into different positions on such a bag. Don't think it was a huge bag :p It was just a 15 by 15 cm "bag"

The only downside was when I was on the bridge itself. The view was awesome, but because the bridge's sides were about 5 cm thick, I didn't want to let my camera rest on that bag, risking it to fall into the water :P I borrowed my friend's tripod there though ^^
