Taken from a boat entry area on the James River in Buchanan, VA. I took it from ground zero (literally) in that I placed the camera on the ground in the gravel to get the perspective.

Post-processing included cropping, straightening, and increasing color saturation.

The bridge cables were actually in much better focus at higher resolution, but I had to sacrifice some quality to reduce to "DPC qualifying" file size (although maintained ratios).

Low angle is great. Looking up is different.

Great dof, good job..a slightly higher angle would've given the picture more bang
