Challenge: Road (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D
Location: Minneapolis, MN
Date: Jan 17, 2006
Galleries: Architecture
Date Uploaded: Jan 17, 2006

Taken on the Stone Arch Bridge looking west into downtown Minneapolis. Several people commented on the lack of traffic - this was originally a railroad bridge spanning the Mississippi river, since converted to pedestrian use. The only motorized traffic it sees is the occasional service or police vehicle.

I would have liked to see this picture place, but you did good.

I liked the fact that there was no traffic, it made it feel like a city full of people that you never see.

Nice lines, well balanced, crisp picture. Oh, and there's a road, too!

I really love the surreal lighting, very nice. Maybe a tighter crop on the left could have emphasized the road more.

Taking night shots like this is hard. Other that the Light flares this is a nicely shot. The tilt is very minimal from the left to the right. Depth and subject gives the felling of a city that has gone to sleep until the next day when this road is well traveled.

Simply amazing. The clarity is fantastic, so crisp and vibrant.
