Marisa, it's too bad you didn't provide any info on this shot. It appears you took it from your vehicle - hopefully, you were the passenger! Sometimes I see these photo opportunities appear before me and I quickly fire off a shot. Once I have that "grab" then I look at the area again to understand what it was that made me want to shoot it in the first place. I know being in a moving vehicle precludes the chance of recomposing the shot. I feel this bridge was interesting because of the steel girders - there appears to be some pattern there. I did try to isolate the pattern in the bridge but could not.   Posted: 10/03/2021 19:16:12

Dear Joe, Thanks for your feedback. I pass by Queensboro Bridge very often but never could take a good shot. As I mentioned in the description, this photo is taken when I passed by Bear Mountain Bridge. I was lucky to have this one. However, the photo cannot fully demonstrate its beauty and strength. The bridge is astonishing!   Posted: 10/06/2021 22:41:07

I think this is an interesting shot. How does it look to you in monochrome? I also cropped out the two partial beams.   Posted: 10/04/2021 21:54:31

Dear Stephen, Thanks for your feedback. I like the b/w image the cropped angle. It looks more like a poster in the gallery or museum. Thank you.   Posted: 10/06/2021 22:46:24

Strong lines in this image give you the feel of the strength of this structure. I would keep it as a colour image because of the strong yellow centre lines which help take you up and through the image to the oncoming cars. But I would crop in from the right to the first vertical upright to remove the somewhat glaring light dead space.   Posted: 10/06/2021 09:51:32

Dear Peter, Your comment is appreciated. It's fun to do trial and error shooting. It's also fun to do editing and cropping. I took your advice and played with editing. They came out with different effects. Thanks a lot.   Posted: 10/06/2021 22:53:22

There are so many majestic bridges on the eastern coast. When I pass by, I am always astonished at their mighty construction and artistic style.
I took this photo of Bear Mountain Bridge a few months ago, (Surely, from the passenger seat.) This photo is one of a few not-so-bad photos among many failed attempts. I think I grasped the moment of visual shock, and the angle of the photo was more appropriate. I do hope the lines of the steel frame can be sharper. I wonder if I should change to the motion feature. Please share if our members have similar ones.   Posted: 10/06/2021 22:23:36

Very nice! Not easy taking this shot in a moving vehicle. Really good detail.   Posted: 10/14/2021 09:31:31

I like the way you have taken this. The immense structure dominates the vehicles. I like where the oncoming traffic is positioned, and the yellow lines leading us in. Interesting technique shooting from a moving vehicle.   Posted: 10/15/2021 06:36:08
