Whitestone Bridge

[Mar. 16th, 2012 12:51:22 AM]

I took this shot while getting dressed in the parking lot for a wedding.
This place is right in between the Whitestone & Throgsneck Bridges in NY. Very close to City Island.

This was a very difficult entry as I spent countless mornings and night shooting the sun rise and set.. Ultimately when I started PP this one, I didn't even need to look at any of the others as I just loved the way this came out. I really hope it looks the way I see it as i'm still using an Old junky laptop which has failed me before.

I honestly cannot remember all the PP I did..

Gorgeous b&w. This has a such a dreary feel to it. Great job.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Love the descrip of how you got this shot :-) Nice silky water, as you can see from many FS winners, DPCers are suckahs for silky water and atmospheric foggy/misty stuff. Nice clean shot, with the bridge wasn't quite so close to centre. In a shot like this, the bridge is so distant it's virtually incidental, so you really need to decide which you're going for, the water or the sky? Good b/w conversion and if you're happy with the way this shot looked before the pping began, then perhaps scale back a little on the pp. Just a thought.

Feel free to PM me

Guess it was very overcast that day? Like the bridge... nice title. Don't see the sunrise/sunset, but I can see it's to the right of the frame.

A tad less sky and this composition rocks (use the rule of thirds). Love the mood, and you nailed the gradation from white to black.

I love the stillness somehow created by the troubled waters, I am somewhat distracted by the bright sky(and sensor dust?)
