Here Comes the Tour Boat by Howard Frank

October 2021 - Here Comes the Tour Boat

About the Image(s)

This image was taken at one of the most interesting spots in Chicago, the 18th Street Bridge near our Chinatown. From within 100 yards on the bridge you can photograph a scene looking down the river towards downtown, a large set of busy train commuter tracks by turning around, a very old train lift bridge over the river. Taken at sundown as a 3 shot HDR and processed in Lightroom and Aurora HDR.

This has everything going for it: composition, sunset, lift bridge up for the boat. Can we see the original? I think this is a touch over-processed because it announces itself as such, and I suggest being a bit more subtle.   Posted: 10/04/2021 20:54:30

Love the sunset, the pinks, blues, greens and golds. Tho it is a bit too DNRed for my taste, that gives it a picture-postcard look, calling me back to Chicago. The bridge looks massive and powerful; the skyscrapers, delicate by comparison.   Posted: 10/10/2021 18:16:52

I like everything about this image. First off it is a very unique capture with the bridge and boat at a perfect moment. The colors and the use of HDR make the image stunning. Very nice!!   Posted: 10/13/2021 19:26:50

There's everything to like about this one, which is made by the time of day with the colors in the sky and the lights on in the buildings. Great leading lines. I tend to like painting light images so the idea over overprocessing doesn't bother me. I might try to get rid of the glaring light on the center against the left edge since it's white and bright. The green in the other street lights softens the glare and work well   Posted: 10/13/2021 22:07:40
