    Nice triangle of people echoing the triangles on the bridge. Is this bridge season at RPF?

    The poses are all slightly odd, slightly humorous, if you don't mind me saying, Brian. Are the couple doing a waltz? (Should that be "is"?)

    Thanks Rob. Yes they were waltzing. No music, though. Just waltzing.

    That's another great one Brian. Really great composition with the two diagonals. I am seriously considering getting an SD1 from Sigma refurbished. My eyesight has gotten so bad that I really need a viewfinder. I do think the Quattro and Foveon sensors look different. They are both great just a little different.

    Thanks Steve. There are some annoying things about the Sigma cameras (just ask @Rob MacKillop, who takes sadistic pleasure from selling them to people he wants to annoy!o_O) but their sensors make for really good photos.

    You're on a roll. Mr Moore! Great and the glance from the scooterist really cements the composition.

    Didn't anyone tell you about June being bridge month @Rob MacKillop ? You'd better get your skates on!

    I love almost everything about this image. But, this one thing is my pet peeve - the bridge just looks like nothing supporting it on left. In fact I just admonished my friend Russ about cutting off an arm - LOL, so do not take it personally because, photography is different for everyone. It is my issue...hahahah
