Lines in the Amazon

It was raining as usual in the brazilian Amazon when I took this photo while driving by the bridge over the Negro River in Manaus, Amazon, Brazil. I was in the city for work in 2013 and could not miss the chance to see the bridge in person. It is a huge work of engineering.
This is the 2nd largest cable-stayed bridge over a river (the largest one is in Venezuela over the Orinoco River). The bridge connects the city of Manaus to Aranduba and is 3,595 metres long.

Harmony both in colour, and geometry. Nice composition.

Mission accomplished!

It took me a bit to figure out the subject matter; I think the title threw me off. I love the contrast and the abstractness. Vivid!

On par with theme.
With balanced colours, striking contrast and excellent geometric lines you have created a very interesting image.
Nominated.

I found this surprising, it's got my vote.

This image has great "wow factor." The vibrant complementary colours coupled with the strong diagonal pulling all of the angles together, make a strong abstract composition. This image has my vote.
