Jamestown bridge in RI...taken during the afternoon, sky really looked blown out so I tried something different..converted to b$w, tried a gradient fill in the sky to get some contrast and burned a few areas of clouds..then sharpened image..never used gradient fill before, it is illegal for a challenge I think, but in this case it was fun to try something a little different.

This is really a nice shot! (and a keeper since they blew-up the old bridge!)

I very much like the shapes you found here. The sweeping curves of the new bridge, the jagged curves of the old one and then the still different curves of the mid-section, all add excitement to this one. It's held together nicely by the straight, rigid pylons. Those leading white edges add even more interest.

Marion you did a great job in post on this as the work you did on the sky gives the image a bit a drama that really adds to it. The billowy clouds you shopped in really make a nice layer upper level to the image and are a great contrast to the choppy river. The bridge image itself is very finely shot and I like the contrasts and use of BW very much. Is this a new bridge and old bridge together, one goes one way the other the other way? I really the contrasts of the newer bridge to the old and was wondering if you could find another angle to bring that out a bit. There is plenty of the old bridge in this (great detail on that, BTW) and if you shot left a bit you might get more of the newer bridge in the image for a better contrast of the two. Neat stuff!

Awesome photo! Would like to see with sky pre-gradient. Good job on the effect though!
