nice shot, but i kinda don't like the water... don't know... a longer exposure or a very short one would make it better.

all-in-all, good!

i suppose its fine, though nothing to write home about, simple, smooth, nonintrusive, but a little too bland. architecturally speaking the bridge itself is quite ugly, just too utilitarian, not a good photo subject.

maybe the shot should have been taken a little later in the day, say half an hour to an hour. dusk is fine, but there is a little too much daylight on the right side.

overall it's quite below the IFL average, though worth being here. i wouldn't put it on my desktop, but only because there's a lot of really good stuff out there.

i really liked your previous post 'spaghetti junction'.

I like the whole half-day half-night compostion, I'm just a sucker for those kinda photos.

My only tip would have been to keep it exposed for a little longer, really getting the light off the water. Then again you may have taken it handheld which would have prevented you from doing so.

Either way, nice shot.

Using this one right now on my Mac and its clean area on the top right corner fits perfectly to where I normally have my few icons. One tip for windows users, where the icons normally would stay on the left top corner would be to invert the image so that the blue'ish corner goes there...

Once again, good photo!

reignofgold - I use a Canon EOS350D for my shots, with a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 lens.

To everyone else, I agree it's not a spectacular shot, but I have uploaded others which I've felt are more vibrant but have not been selected by the admins, so go figure.

If anyone is interested in my other shots, feel free to visit my Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/chris_gin/

rewind - the version of this pic on my Flickr account is a slightly different one, with longer exposure, so you may like that better. Only thing is you would need to crop/resize to fit your monitor resolution.

I like this shot even though the water could have been more silkier in my opinion from longer exposure. I love some of your other shots you got there on Flickr and added you as a friend.

I was just wondering... How fair is it for IFL to remove wallpapers (even if at request of the original author) after a whole bunch of people spent their time commenting on it? I know this is probably not the right place to argue about this but there is no "forum" that I know of where this kind of question can be voiced.

My opinion is that just deleting a whole lot of people's opinions is just not right. The comments themselves are part of a "karma" system, where your avatar gets bounded to sentences such as "People generally value my opinion" etc. Deleting the wallpapers also take away all points given to all its comments.

What do you guys think about it? Maybe an area "rejected/removed" where this submissions would finally rest would be a way forward.

Just my 2c.

Oh, by the way, I'm just bringing this up because just today one wallpaper, a beach scene that was heavily (badly?) photoshopped was removed.

oh stop whining apple boy. if someone doesn't want his photo to be showcased anymore just respect it. and get a life, i mean a real one, cos your won't make it on your avatar karma for too long. i got twelve interns at NAACP and 9 at the defamation league clicking day and night thumbs down at my comments, and am i concerned? not one bit. i dont even know what karma is. i always thought it was some voodoo nonsense, and now internet is full of it. what a load of crap.

Observing the recent events that have taken a place here on IFL. I don't have any problems when IFL staff decides to remove one of the wallpapers that fail to live up to some standards of this website. IFL has every right to do that to retain it's status of quality work. Those of us that have seen that beach scene today can very well agree with IFL that it just did not meet the criteria. The concept was great but execution however was poorly implemented and probably got overlooked by IFL just like I initially thought that it was great until I saw original size. I was getting upset lately. Glad to see some measures. Kudos to IFL!

The irony of Barney's posts is that I'm not actually a black person -- my avatar was created from a piece at 100portraits.co.uk. (Being from Italy, I don't consider myself a NAACP spokesman.) I do think it's revealing that Barney immediately turned to racially charged statements based on an irrelevant joke I made on another submission. That's a non-sequitur at best.

Anyway, sorry for the rant. I like this photo. Despite the "utilitarian" bridge, it makes a heck of a desktop, which is what this place is all about. Great colors and framing!

@ bm.7729 -- again, the avatar is not a picture of me...

I was born (not raised) in Turin. You can guess where I live now.

By the way, I'm not the one rating your comments down. I don't think the "blocking" system is fair or logical, personally, so don't target me! :-)

Nice, very simple and easy on the eyes. Granted, the bridge is not the prettiest structure in the world, but I like the photo a lot!

Barney, did Al Sharpton eat your dog? :P I assumed Brizkit was black myself, but I don't see what one thing's got to do with the other...?

@brizkit

oh i see what you mean. so you stole the picture and used it as your avatar. when you said you 'created' your avatar, i figured you actually created it, you know, from your picture.

but that circumcision still doesn't make sense. you're either an uncircumcised masochist or you were circumcised because of medical problems. people in turin don't maim their newborn boys' genitalia for fun like moslims or americans.

anyway, the picture to which this debate attaches to still sux.

(- 82 674) People generally hate me and wish I would just leave this forum.

Barney, you'll get no argument from me over the avatar... Yes, I liked it, stole it, and used it. Should I assume that you're a banned, defecating bull?

You say: "but that circumcision still doesn't make sense. you're either an uncircumcised masochist or you were circumcised because of medical problems. people in turin don't maim their newborn boys' genitalia for fun like moslims or americans."

Or the Jewish people. Or a third of the male population. Obviously you're not from Turin. There are almost 50,000 of us in Italy.

Barney, my gripe is not about circumcision... it's about the fact that you turned to race at the mere sight of a black face. Let's argue the procedure, but please leave presumption out!

@brizkit

look, just change your avatar and stop insulting uncircumcised penises and we'll be fine. that kind of avatar misrepresentation is offensive anyway. if i were a black person i'd say 'how dare you?' (you know how sensitive they are to this kind of stuff)

Chris,
I love this photo and you have many more amazing ones on your flicker stream. Thank you for taking the time to share them with us.

A little less of uneventful sky and more of the water with longer exposure so you would see reflections better meanwhile properly positioning the bridge to be off of center would make this a beautiful picture. Getting down capturing more of water is essential for water shots to shine through as a unique picture.

@IFL...I think taking down wall papers is rude. Once they are posted they are property of IFL and as such should not be subject to whimsies of conversational winds that sometimes occur in comment area. A conversation is a work in progress while the picture once posted is a work of art--a done deal that should be respected as part of history. Given that many people enjoy IFL's wall papers regardless of what's going on in a comment lobby I think it should also be the view of InterFaceLift. It would put this web site in disrepute if I start noticing my favorite wallpapers dissapearing one by one. Personal opinions are like the wind if they are not based on truth. Truth is immortal it goes on forever. Jesus is Truth. When we see a personal opinion based on truth we must respect it but abhore the lies of the devil.

@brizkit... I think your flame war must stop. Think. Be quiet. If you claim to be a Jew behave like a Jew.

REPENT, I have to disagree about the sky. I love the vertical centering of the bridge, it brings a nice spacial balance. Saying that more water is "essential" is hardly a path to uniqueness!

P.S. I suggest you look up the definition of "flame war" -- I've been as respectful as possible in a discussion like this (albeit off-topic). In fact, I'd say your last comment is much closer to an offensive flame.

The main problem with this photo is that the composition leads the eye out of the picture. The photo works much better once it is flipped horizontally. Not only does it then lead the eye into the pic, it also creates a dark area on the left that serves as a better background for desktop icons in Windows.

Perhaps, bdwilcox... unless you're from Iran and on a Mac.
