Your pictures: Arches

image captionBen Dixon: "There is something about things framed in threes which offers symmetry and balance. I like these three mini scenes all framed and brought into one - the subjects all appear impervious to each other's presence."

image captionRichard Woods: "This is (or was) called London Bridge. (Sorry England, we keep borrowing your place names in Australia!) Sadly, since this photo was taken, this particular 'London Bridge' has fallen down and a somewhat less spectacular one a little to the left of this one has taken on the name. My friends and I are quite glad it held together while we were there at least. Didn't give it a thought at the time. Crazy youth."

image captionRobert Wilson: "The last port of call for the Titanic, the town of Cobh (formerly Queenstown) is situated on the Great Island in Cork Harbour, Ireland. The only road in or out of the island is across Belvelly Bridge which is over 200 years old. As I live in Cobh, I travel over this bridge daily and an idea for this shot came to me one night during one of these trips. Ensuring that there was a very low tide, I was able to safely walk under the arches and light them up with a flash gun. Using a long exposure, this captured the three arches lit up and also captured me three times."
