#035-365 Bridges or Tunnels

Earlier on in my Fireworks shots I mentioned the Storey Bridge where the main emphasis of Riverfire was centered. I wasn't able to see this bridge from my vantage point but thought you might enjoy this as a little interlude before the fireworks related shots start to roll out again.

This is one on my Pseudo HDR shots (Thanks Jeff) and I hope I am getting a little better at toning down the effect. I find this shot pleasing and soothing to look at almost as if I was trying to recreate Huckleberry Finns View Point, another of my Heros along with Peter Pan and the Monkey King.

Sky is really fabulous. Think this is your best HDR to date. It really is almost 3D (to me). Good job!

What a layout...you have the foreground with the palms and wall, the middle ground interest of the boat, and the far side of the bridge. All of it fits just right in the focus and extra boost of HDR...(not too much...)

Looks so idyllic with that pretty park and the paddle boat. How long did you have to wait until it was perfectly positioned? It's perfect the way it's moving into the photo along the sweep of the river, leading your eye right to the bridge.

This one is swell, Ron. I like your composition, the shades, textures, colors and layout. Your faux HDR is much better in the toning. Lovely lovely shot. Makes one want to visit that site. :D

But, right now, you need to go visit my site. I have something there for you. :D
