About the Image(s)

This bridge along the Oregon coast was designed by famous bridge engineer Conde McCollough, who did many of the Oregon bridges, but this one is very unique. Shot with an Olympus M1 Mark II and Olympus 12 - 100 f/4 lens at ISO 320, 50mm, f/11, 1/160 sec. The color version was not impressive. Shirley was surprised I bothered with the mono conversion, but we both liked the result.

Fantastic!
Bridge, people, perfect.   Posted: 07/08/2021 21:42:12

I like your composition with the bridge framed by the trees. The people in foreground add interest. There is a slight tilt to the bridge, with the right side elevated relative to horizontal?   Posted: 07/10/2021 15:32:23

I think Don is correct but it is very slight. The camera is tipped down as we were above the bridge so it probably needs perspective correction also.   Posted: 07/12/2021 10:42:28

I see an interesting succession of contrasting sizes in this image. The people are dwarfed by the bridge and the bridge is dwarfed by the trees and hillside.   Posted: 07/10/2021 16:00:49

The light post in the center appears Tru vertical, so I think the bridge is at a slight natural incline   Posted: 07/10/2021 16:30:07

Perhaps the image is not tipped, but this is taken from on a hill with the camera tilted down, so there certainly is a perspective issue. Perhaps I should do some correction. When it is not clear that their should be perspective shown, it is best to have it not show at all.   Posted: 07/19/2021 13:57:47

I like the image. Relationship of size to people, trees, beach, road, etc. is awesome. Excellent B & W conversion.   Posted: 07/19/2021 15:28:27

Stan, I agree with Shirley. This is much better as a monochrome. I'm surprised the blue bridge came out so light, or did you tweak it? I like the framing and texture of the trees, the scale indicated by the people, and the flowing lines of the sand and water. A striking image.   Posted: 07/23/2021 20:06:52
