Well shot and processed, #3 edges it for me

2 and 3 for me. Great lines and being in B&W really makes it stand out. If pushed, I'd go for 3 simply due to the reflection you've caught.
Be well, stay safe.

Nicely done. I like bridges and I like your photos . No. 3 stands out for the lines and reflection. No. 1 stands out for the people about to walk under the bridge - they bring a sense of scale as well as the surprising jolt when I realised that the bridge isn't the true subject of the picture, it's just the frame to draw your eyes to the people. No. 2 doesn't quite get to the same level for me, not so much interest and it isn't quite symmetrical.

I rather like no. 3 myself. Nicely done.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

3 for me also but I also like the framing of the opening image

All good but the third shots has that combination of framing and processing that makes it stand out

Thanks to you all for your comments.

Steve, re. #1 - My reason for taking this was to get a composition showing the structure of the bridge and I waited for some people to walk along the towpath into the scene to give (as you noted) a sense of scale. I have to admit that I didn't think of the man and his daughter being the subject, but I now see what you mean. I wish I had more talent for seeing images! I like #3, but #1 is now my favourite!
