Shutter: 1 sec

Date Uploaded: Jun 26, 2005

The photo was taken from the underside of an old bridge over the river “Rio Carapa” in Paraguay. The objective was to capture a somber atmosphere for a bridge forgotten. I wanted to capture the water in its tranquility thus the slow shutter speed.

I like the flow of the water but there is a lack of color in the photo. like someone mentiond below use of a filter or small app. is what you would need to do.

Could have used a little more contrast IMHO. Also didn't pop for compositionally.

Exposure is a bit too long and has washed out the colors. You might have been trying to get the flowing effect of the water which made you lengthen the exposure time , but, then you need to compensate with smaller apeture , or a ND filter.

I think it may have been better from above. Good none the less.

Pretty picture! Is the bridge broken or what? I don't quite see the obsoleteness. but I like the shot anyway.
