This is another shot from our photowalk last Saturday morning. Just after the blue hour faded away, the pastel colors bloomed. I love the quiet, peaceful Zen of this shot. Fortunately the lights on the bridge were still on, so I got some nice reflections in the water.
This is an HDR from three bracketed images. I cropped a little off the bottom to balance the composition a little better. I used Topaz Adjust to add just a little bit of detail to the bridge, and I used Topaz DeNoise at the max setting to smooth everything out to look a little closer to what I saw that morning. I’ll admit I did juice up the saturation a little…okay, a lot…but the colors had to have been there in order to be juiced up, right??
I wonder just how many ways there are to shoot pictures of the Mill Avenue Bridge??
I have a new Facebook page, ZannWalker Photography, that I hope you’ll visit and “Like”. I’ll be using that page to post links and tidbits of all kinds of photography-related stuff that I personally find interesting. Hopefully you will to. So come on over and see me on Facebook!
