Challenge: Shapes II (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS
Location: Forth Road Bridge, Edinburgh
Date: Jan 2, 2006
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 100
Shutter: 10 seconds
Galleries: Cityscape, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Jan 3, 2006

Another one of the Forth Road Bridge. I was playing with white balance for a long time, most of the sky is lit a very warm orange by the city lights... in the end, there's only so much you can do with colour temperatures so i used the channel mixer to swap round the three colour channels (basically an invert, but without flipping light and dark as well).

Quite simple edits on this one:
1. Channel mixer
2. Resize to 640
3. Tiny bit of USM

Fortunately 640 is too small to show up the hot pixels and dust spots :)

Love the curves and shapes seen in this composition. The curves of the bridge allow the eye to pleasently coast over this bridge as we explore the photo. Our eye also travels up to the top most portions of the bridge. There we see the Retangular support struct/'towers' that contain black outlined diamond shapes amounst the backdrop of the night sky. Tones and hues are lovely and appealing. Great capture.

I like this shot...
The lights look so white, not off-white or yellow!

Nice curved lines, wondering if you could have caught some light in the sky and still maintain the contrast with the roadway.

Well, here's the obligatory bridge shot for this challenge. I think this would win if there was a bit more punch to it. It's a bit mono. 7
