    This is the underside of the Duane Berentson Bridge, which carries part of Highway 20 connecting Fidalgo Island to the Skagit (pronounced ska-jit) Valley here in Washington State. Unofficially I guess it's referred to as the "Twin Bridges."

    Holga 120N with Fomapan 400 film processed in Rodinal.

    Spectacularly good, Brian. The edge softening and slight vignette work perfectly with the composition and grain adds nice texture to the sky. Gorgeous contrast as well.

    Great framing and a wonderful illusion of motion caused by the vignette when I look at it.

    If only it had one or two leading lines

    Nice one, Brian. Perfectly composed and processed.

    Seriously? Lines that lead the eye into the frame, directing you towards something. It started in the Renaissance, I believe, but is still used in art today.

    Found online:

    Definition: A leading line is a line in the picture that leads your eye from one part of the scene to another. The strongest composition is usually achieved when the lines lead your eye towards the main subject or focal point within the scene.

    Your composition has more leading lines than anyone could ever hope for. It's braw!
