Cliché ?


Photo Information
Apparently that's one of the most photographed spots in the city. That said, took me 4 years to realize that and the one time I've actually thought it was worthwhile, I did not take a tripod with me.... But here it is...late to the party with my Millenium Bridge shot. Not the best quality but I do like the angle. Will be coming back to get that 'perfect' shot, hopefully

You have to admit - it's an impressive view, whatever

A very strong image. The shots I've seen have been taken from above.
Best wishes,

Andrew

At first glance a very striking image but IMHO you have darkened the sky too much either side of the bridge, or you have lightened the central triangle too much (more likely). The difference in light between the inside and outside of the rails is very unrealistic but the viewpoint and framing is the best I have seen of this location. I think it's worth reworking the original file or maybe re-shooting a set of 3 exposures and blending them to produce a final image. Of course you may like it exactly how it is and that's fair enough, just giving you my take on it.

Thank you all very much for the comments and I could not agree more Lingevres. Strangely enough, the contrast in the sky is quite strong to start with, though clumsy editing does not help. Went back today for some multi exposures, unfortunately a bit too late in the day. Still, got material to practice playing with luminosity masks in Photoshop, as I am starting to really dislike any automated programs that attempt to do the blending for you. It very well may be due to my own ignorance haha. It's a fun learning process either way Will most definitely give this particular one a 'round 2' as well. Cheers!

I'll be surprised if you can get much better than this!

Afraid you may be right; hope you are wrong...I'll keep on trying! The bridge isn't going anywhere, though it turns out low tide gets in the way, too lol. Funny thing happened the other day. Had my tripod set. Every now and than a person with a camera would pass by, stop, look at my live view, than take a step back....ask if I mind if they take a pic, move on. Easily half a dozen of people did exactly the same thing.

Why can't people think for themselves!
My wife tells me she doesn't need photos to remind her of events - I should keep a copy of your signature close to me!
