I disagree with Mike's comment. I believe that some allegiance to reality should be reserved. Yes, the photograph is a work of art; this being said I don't believe that the artist has license to manipulate the image to positions that would be impossible to position in nature. I could be wrong but I believe that the 'right' bridges are actually to the East of the 'left' bridges. To rearrange the authentic placement of these structures would violate nature for the sake of some form of non existent and 'synthetic' symmetry. I am aware that images are routinely flipped in print media such that, for instance, a man's breast pocket would appear to be over his right breast, a placement impossible in the real world. I have travelled this series of bridge-tunnels that make up this virtual national monument, and I'd hate to think that I was viewing it then in a non-authentic position. In my opinion, such manipulation is not a preference that is within the artist's realm of permission. I feel it is a beautiful piece of artwork as it is and doesn't need to 'lie' to be appreciated by the viewing public.

I like this image, but there has been one thing that I would correct. I'd be a bit cheeky and flip the image so that the right-hand bridge is on the other side. I'd only do this as I find the right hand bridge is leading my eye from right to left as the bridge extends into the distance. Just my preferance! The use of sky is great though, shows how big the bridge is!
