About the Image(s)

I took this while out on a covid-weary and safe walk with some friends. I loved the play of light on the bridge and thought it would be a great BW. Processed mostly in PS/Camera Raw with a bit of Lumenzia for tamping down highlights
And I replaced the sky (Oh no!).

Interesting contrast between curved lines of the original and straight lines in the shadows.   Posted: 04/02/2021 17:04:14

I really like your conversion, the leading lines and the overall composition. And, I do like the replaced sky but wonder if perhaps it doesn't have too much contrast.   Posted: 04/07/2021 08:11:37

I like this a great deal. The leading lines and shadows play nicely against the clouds in the sky. One small suggestion: take out that tiny white bit at the rear center of the bridge.   Posted: 04/07/2021 12:45:19

Hi Wes, welcome to our fabulous group!

Your sky replacement was a great choice it adds a very visual dramatic interest.
I thought that there was just too much going on in your image so I cropped it so that my eyes were not darting all over the place. The road going over the bridge to me, is also a very busy path that leads to a dramatic skyline.Could you replace the road with another surface that was simple with maybe just one leading line or retake the image at a different time of the day so the shadows are not so pronounced?
Very nicely composed and seen.   Posted: 04/13/2021 05:14:38
