Challenge: Bridges II (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Sony DSC-W1
Location: Windsor, ON, Canada
Date: Feb 12, 2005
Aperture: F5.6
ISO: 100
Shutter: 15 Sec
Galleries: Cityscape, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Feb 12, 2005

My 1st entry. Editing: Crop, Levels, Curves, Colour Balance and Channel Mixer. (I'm pretty sure they're all leagle, my humblest appologies if I'm wrong.) and Unsharp Mask.

I cross this bridge 4 to 6 times a night for my job. It is the Ambassador Bridge linking Windsor ON, Canada and Detroit, MI, USA. I love it, and hate it more and more every day.

Like this a lot, but the sign on the left is killing it.

The view of the bridge aside, what is really amusing is the inclusion of the swimming prohibited sign, with snow on the ground yet.

There just has to be a good tutorial on how to get lights like these to turn out better. I surely don't know how, but someone must - it would help with this photo and about 9000 of mine!

I find that the sign on the left draws my eye away from the rest of the picture.

I think I would have rated this one higher, if the focal point was put beyond the end of the deck. I think that would have pulled the focus of the bridge in just a hair to make it really neat. Of course then I might be asking you what the sign said... :)

Nice exposure. I don't know what the sign adds to this picture; to me it's a distraction but maybe you wanted it there so I won't come down on that too hard. And personally I'd like the whole picture moved up a bit, with less on the bottom and more on the top. But this is all nit-picky, overall this is a very nice shot.

The foreground content makes this photo interesting, I like the depth created by it. The sign "swimming prohibited" makes no sense in these conditions and therefore adds some fun.

Personal opinion here, but I might have cropped out the railing, however I think you were trying to include the sign, so it's all okay.

Hm... did you try taking pictures that didn't include the sign? i feel like it's distracting me from the rest of a very pretty image. (7)

Terrible colors!

Very moody... i like the colors and snow... just sign and white lights at back bit distracting. Good job anyway,
