bridge by pfmandeville

bridge

This is the Ford Parkway bridge over the Mississippi River - one of the bridges that connects Minneapolis and St. Paul.

I just put a slight vignette on this but it sure seems like it could be much better with an edit by someone who knows how (like HDR maybe?). Ah well, I'll learn someday.....
This is gorgeous

What a pretty bridge. I love it, great shot.

Pamela, I believe it works very well just the way you've captured it here! How old is this bridge, do you know? Beautiful framing with the trees in the foreground and on the bank in the distance. Is that graffiti at ground level?
February 13th, 2011  
Cool! I love the snow/ice around the bottom. It frames the bridge beautifully and actually makes it seem warm! I love seeing MSP through your eyes!

Now that is a great photo, and wonderful choice to make it in this tone.

This is fantastic and I think it already looks very similar to an HDR image. It's perfect as is!

@kerristephens @dawnirwin Thank you!

@meredithwb Thanks! It was built in 1927 and rebuilt later. This link { http://www.johnweeks.com/bridges/pages/ms10.html) says 2002 but it seems like only a year or two ago they redid the road surface and walkway/lights, etc. Yes, that is graffiti - if you hit the magnifying glass above the picture you can see it better (if the bottom doesn't show, hit F11).

@mtol @digitalrn @bluemoon @silverhorn Thank you for your comments! I didn't do anything with this except the vignette. I tried the auto tone but it made it too blue. I tried cloning some branches but quickly gave that up! I do like it the way it is.

Wow perfect picture and perspective. Your processing is spot on!
February 13th, 2011  
I don't think this needs anything; it's beautiful as it is.

Lovely bridge, great angle.. It's a fine shot
February 13th, 2011  
Wonderfully Photographed
February 13th, 2011  
Love the lines of the bottom of the bridge, beautiful! I think it really doesn't need much more editing, HDR is to strong, most of the times. This one already has a HDR-feel, so it's great!
February 13th, 2011  
Beautifully composed shot! Very well done.
February 13th, 2011  
this is such a great shot. I love the angle on this.
February 13th, 2011

wonderful perspective...really love this photo...
February 13th, 2011  
Great shot!
February 13th, 2011  
I love this just they way you took it. Sometimes the HDR makes the photo too good or not so natural. This is lovely the way you saw it and shot it.
February 13th, 2011  
Nice photo. It has an HDR look to it. Looking forward to seeing you today.
February 13th, 2011  
Wow, beautiful shot!!! Love the composition, the sky, and the colors... Just wonderful!!!
February 13th, 2011  
Pamela I had to fav this one right away. You know it already has that HDR feel to it....it's gorgeous! I love the way you framed the bridge and how it makes such a powerful diagonal composition. Fantastic!!
February 13th, 2011  
Nice angle :]
February 13th, 2011  
I keep coming back to this shot, it's so good. Have made it a fav.
February 13th, 2011  
Beautiful! I love the framing and the bridge itself.
February 13th, 2011  
This is lovely just as it is... I'm not a big fan of HDR myself.
February 13th, 2011  
I think this is gorgeous!! There is so much detail!! Fav!

Very nice...I was down by the James River (in Richmond, VA) yesterday took several bridge shots myself...always something great to photograph "down by the riverside" ;-)

This bridge is wonderfully captured, great job!
