The bridge itself looks great, and so does the mosaic! :golly:

If I had built this bridge, I'd probably obsess over the placement of the pillar and the main bridge arches now: I'd try to get the wide arch spanning the river, or at the very least to avoid the double pillars right where I suppose the shipping channel would be. However, you are not me, and I don't even know if that river will ever see commercial ship traffic, so that doesn't need to concern you. :lol: I'm just rambling a little...

Ha, well I did not mind where the pillars should be; I just worked with what I had. Also, the river is too shallow for major commercial shipping operations so there was no need to pay attention to pillar placement and bridge height. But hey, I always love what you need to say about my work, as I can always use the advice  you give out for future use. :)

"View across the Bay" mosaic. Spanning about 7k over 3 cities, I was planning on using this for the Night Scene challenge but that big gap over water feels like it breaks up the continuity a little too much.
 

I like the idea so much that I'm probably going to steal it, I also don't think the gap is that obstrusive. Granted it's large, but it makes the mosaic more interesting and very unique. I'd only go and fade the different colors of the water in post-editing, don't think there's any ethical issues at play with that here - sometimes the game just doesn't know how good it could look. ;)

i ABSOLUTELY need to know what that large factory on the bottom shore with the huge smoke stack is? And possibly the one to the left as well?

I like it, a lot! Particularly that small canal with a waterfall, and more in general, the terraced structure.

And by the way, imgur is your friend

For larger images, I find Flickr is the way to go. No reduction in size or quality, and 1TB of free space.

I've gone ahead based on your recommendation and signed up for an account, thanks. PB were really starting to become a nuisance. I get the problem, I want a service but don't want to pay for it. But if I can have some nice detailed shots again, I'd rather switch. I just worry in time like all other providers, Flickr will change their service and bork everything too. I was able to restore the full-size mosaic though, so now you can see it with all the detail as intended :D.
