Sunset at Talmadge Bridge Savanah GA. by Adelet Kegley

June 2020 - Sunset at Talmadge Bridge Savanah GA.

About the Image(s)

Container ship Cosco had 5 inch clearance on way to Savanah Port. Savanah has ongoing river dredging project to enable larger ships arrive at port.
I took many shots of this image as the sun went down. It was a big red ball that started above the bridge. Clouds and lighting I picked this one to tell the story of the ship. Played with the lighting effect on this photo.

Ah, it's alright....Just kidding. I can describe this image with one word, AWESOME!! You saw an opportunity and captured it. I really like the placement of the horizon, including more of the colorful sky. Definite wall hanger.   Posted: 06/07/2020 12:48:15

Great light. Always love the sunset. I was worried about the safety of the bridge. Imagine being on the bridge during the the passing of the cargo, what a view. Great composition, great impact.

5 inches gives no leeway for error, I don't think I want to cross that bridge if ships are going underneath. Well captured, but the ship seems to have a lot of noise on it.   Posted: 06/11/2020 11:45:48

This is an awesome image. As to the noise, there are several filters available, probably Topaz is the easiest.   Posted: 06/12/2020 15:57:01
