Rarely do you cross downtown's Rich Street Bridge without seeing somebody taking photos near the railing.

  • It's a perfect spot — a wide angle of the Scioto River bending west and an unimpeded view of the Columbus skyline.

Driving the news: Enough of you are taking these pictures to make Columbus the 9th-most photographed city skyline in America, per social media engagement analysis done by online art gallery SINGULART.

  • The Arch City ranked ahead of D.C., Seattle and Austin.

Be smart: One of the website's suggestions on how to take the best skyline photos is to take advantage of "blue hour," when the sky's still blue but city lights have switched on, to get a unique contrast.
