10th place
This is the new Tradeston Bridge in Glasgow, Scotland. I love the fins (if you look close you can see the furthest one slightly to the right of the nearest one) and the handrail seems to curve and lead the viewer in to them almost effortlessly. It was a lovely sunny evening for shooting it, too.
