The lovely arches of the Kings Bridge hidden behind the concrete ugliness of the Paterson Street Bridge.

The reflective nature of the bridge and the boat serve as a strong foundation for the balance of the image. The contrast between the bridge and the relative darkened nature of the background landscape helps to bring a 3D feel to the image.

That is a nice reflection Dave and so good to see the view without mist, you do get some sunny days then? Quite rugged there.
Good one.
Best wishes

The old bridge and it's reflections are lovely; shame that the new bridge couldn't have been built with a more aesthetic value.

Exceptional! Love that crisp reflection that leads my eye along and under the bridge. Belongs in a travel brochure!

Maybe the newer concrete bridge would look better without the juxtaposition. Certainly the comparison makes it look rather ugly and graceless and it in turn rather spoils what's left of the view of the old bridge.
In the UK, even with money being tight we try to hold onto our old structures. Recently Paddington Station was upgraded in preparation for the new Crossrail line when demolition of the rather narrow Bishop's Bridge which carried road traffic over the railway and the canal just outside the station was begun to widen the road and build a new bridge and approachway. It was discovered that under all the asphalt and concrete was the first of Brunel's iron canal bridges (1839). Work was stopped while engineers checked the bridge and discovered it could be dismantled. This was done and the old bridge was then renovated and reinstalled as a footbridge 200 yards along the canal.
