My grandson thinks they live under the footbridge at his older brother's soccer field.

I think a troll would be quite happy in your abstractly conceived under-bridge. I love the way you've captured all the shapes and reflections and shadows in such a way that they lose depth and perspective and become an other worldly patchwork of design.

Thank you very much, minniev. Nothing like a captured scene to invoke one's imagination.

I'm fascinated by this one. I expected the underbelly of the bridge, where else do trolls live, but was not expecting the beautiful reflection against the concrete underside. It's stunning then you add those other interesting shapes and Wow!

Please excuse me for being curious, but have you thought to crop it down? My monitor isn't tall enough to see it all in one go, but looking at it I would crop it down to the top of the last dark area, one above the reflections, maybe one more if you want it square, but I like it with the one. I would print the cropped version on something like metal or glass!

Beautiful! S-

St3v3, what is the largest height image your monitor can view completely?

Probably about 600-800, but thanks to Chuck I remembered I can open the entire image in a New Tab!

Now I see why you went the way you did! I still like the crop, but I'm being quiet now. LAF

So much to learn! S-

Most of the time (but occasionally not but not sure why) you can just click on the image and it opens as a crisp high rez thumbnail (I guess we would hafta call it except bigger). Then you can see the whole thing. I like that trick as well as opening in a new tab, but for some reason it doesn't always work, maybe if an image is embedded?
Bob, those reflections are just wonderful. Awesome. Literally scintillating. I swear they move. :thumbup:

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
