Eternity. by Cocooue Eternity. by Cocooue

I took this picture at one of the seven bridges in cologne.
It was the wedding of a friend and these locks have a little story behind :D
in Cologne, there is a tradition... a lock have to mounted on the bridge and then you have to throw the key into the Rhine.Then, the relationship will last forever.
So of course many couples do that.
It looks amazing :heart:

Astonishing =)

There are so many good points about this photo that I don't know where to start, but I will do my best.

Firstly, the idea behind the photo. The idea is just great. The title, to start with, could state that the couples who have their lock there can last forever or that the row of locks goes on forever. I also never knew about this tradition, but I think it's a beautiful one.

Now, the vision of this photo. It is beautiful to see how the row of locks seems endless (eternity, you see ;] ) because of the blur when the row goes further away. And about that blur, it really fits the picture. Also the fact that most locks are copper-coloured and some have other colours adds a beautiful effect to the photo, even though it has a rainbow colour over it. One more thing I really like is that one black lock. I don't know if you meant anything special by that, but I see it as something different from the rest, which I find really good. The reason why I gave 4.5 stars on technique instead of 5 is that the environment around the fence is also coloured. I think a black/white focus on the environment with a rainbow-coloured fence, would have had a stronger effect, but that's just a personal opinion.
And then the half star less on vision is because of that very striking, prominent white light below the top left corner. It's got this distracting effect, while the most important part of this photo really is the fence.

So in short, 2 small details that I like a bit less, but which are mostly personal opinion.

For the rest, this is a beautiful picture, with a beautiful meaning =)

:wow: What an amazing photo. Loving the colors, too. Where did you find all these locks? It's crazy how many are hanging there.
Regarding our agreement, I think I have just made my first pick.

Beautiful concept and picture. I think I like this one better than the newer one. Something about the color scheme of this one is what does it for me. Just my two bits.
