I took this image in Saturday night March 22 and the Curves challenge came out on Sunday. So I re-took the picture and entered the new photo in the Curves challenge. I am also entering this one in Freestudy just because I like it and I think it is a better picture than the Curves entry. However, it will probably get hammered in this challenge.

This is a blend (no HDR) of one picture that was exposed at three different levels in the RAW Convert.

Gee Ron that bridge has been good for you, two shots within your top 4 within a week, cant be bad, congratulations

Its funny to compare and contrast the two and I guess the HDR version does have a great depth and strength of colour to it, but the interesting thing (to me anyway) is the fact that the red light of the single car going up the hill and by the shoreline seem almost more vibrant

Great picture Ron

Wow! As many times as I've been to Austin, I've never caught this view. Beautiful!

Not a bad placement in the FS at all. :D Good job with getting back there and taking the photos that you wanted.

Hey - I know this bridge from another challenge, the Expert Editing "3D Bridge". I can dig it up if you want to, although I suspect it's yours as well :) This image also has a very strong 3D feeling to it.

Very cool time lapse. The lighting under the bridge really give the feeling that there is more activity going on, it's just not visible to us, the viewer.

You even got a vehicle on the loading dock/ramp. Nice catch! -BB
