May 2021 - Bridge in the Fog

About the Image(s)

This is actually a color image. I usually take the RAW files into Silver Efex Pro to convert to B & W, but in this instance, the combination of the lighting, the fog and the general monochromatic surrounds yielded a erie, low-key image. Minor adjustments were made in Lightroom. Image was taken at Langus Riverfront Park in Everett, WA last December. Only minor adjustments were made in Lightroom.

Image Info: Sony a6600; 18-135 Zoom; 34mm ( 51mm equiv); /125 sec at f/11, ISO 160

Great, moody shot with just enough details the far bridge structure to make what might be quite an ordinary object appear very different. You might consider a small crop to the top of the sky section to bring it down just above the top of the sharper trees and I don't know how much there is of the black base as where it ends is difficult to see on my screen. Sometimes a very thin white border helps the viewer know where the picture ends but it may not be appropriate with this image but maybe worth a try.

Hi Michael,
Good story. You captured that dark, cold, foggy mood. It is well composed. The vertical posts on the bridge leads my eye up to the bridge and takes me further into the fog ending up in the tree. It creates a mystery. I agree with Peter. A thin white border would define the edges of your frame. Well done.   Posted: 05/05/2021 11:23:41

Thanks for the suggestions - good points. I cropped it a bit from the top, took it into Silver Efex Pro and picked an appropriate preset; toned it with light Selenium and added a slight border - thought I got the border on all 4 sides but looks like I missed the top...but you get the idea.   Posted: 05/06/2021 17:43:37
