October 2021 - Newport Bridge at Low Tide

About the Image(s)

Shot at ISO 320, 16mm, f/16, 1/100 sec with an Olympus E-M1 Mrk II camera and Olympus 12-100 f/4.0 lens.

The low tide shot reveals old pilings and junk in the harbor. The bridge uses art deco and art modern elements as do several of the 11 Oregon bridges designed by famous bridge designer Conde McCullough.

I see two pictures. The bridge on top and the pilings below. The pilings would make a most interesting picture?   Posted: 10/05/2021 14:54:51

I certainly find the foreground mos interesting, but I think it's a necessary complement to the bridge. Super picture!   Posted: 10/05/2021 17:58:16

For me, the bridge is the star of the image, but the posts do add nice foreground interest. The debris, not so much, but their presence makes me aware of the power of moving water.   Posted: 10/09/2021 13:01:00

Wonderful contrast between the fine architectural detail of the bridge and the rough vegetation coated pilings. The object in the lower left anchors and makes the image for me, its roughly coated arched shape echoing the smooth arches of the bridge.   Posted: 10/11/2021 23:50:11

I'm with Helen here, it's the contrast that interests me. It might have been increased if a viewpoint could have been found that separates the piles from the bridge on the right where they overlap here, just to emphasise that difference.   Posted: 10/17/2021 14:47:55

I like your image. It is interesting with visual elements that contrast with the bridge. Your image is quite sharp throughout and the tonal range is quite nice. I like the story and the image works to evoke a strong feeling of place, past and contrasting elements within the scene.   Posted: 10/17/2021 16:25:20
