Year in Pictures Out: While this image is pretty simple in composition, it's that calm and simplicity that draws me to it. Unlike some uncomplicated images, I don't find this one boring. The pattern of the beams across the top and side of the bridge draw me into the cloudlike world beyond, and the softness of the fog doesn't let me eye follow the line of the bridge out of the frame, but instead I circle around trying to discover where the mist ends and the reality of the structure begins, and the bird adds a perfect balance. Do you think this image would have held up to those chosen for the Year in Pictures? http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22200921

A silver gull flies near the Sydney Harbour Bridge as it is enveloped in thick fog May 17, 2007 in Sydney, Australia. Ferry services were suspended for nearly three hours and Sydney Airport diverted 25 international flights to Brisbane and Melbourne as the fog caused commuter chaos for the second time this week.
