Challenge: Your Corner of the World II (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Sony DSC-V1
Location: Bluewater Bridges, Sarnia, Ontario
Date: Oct 1, 2005
Aperture: F3.2
ISO: 100
Shutter: 5 sec
Date Uploaded: Sep 27, 2005

The Bluewater Bridges, linking Sarnia, Ontario and Port Huron, Michigan -- the gateway to Bluewaterland, and *my* corner the world. This is my first serious attempt at a longer exposed night shot, as well as my first entry in the Members challenge. I must say I really like the slightly eerie quality this photo has. And even if I don't do well on my first Members challenge, I had a lot of fun getting the shot.

Postprocessing: Cropped, rotated slightly to level off the horizon, then used automatic colour balance and saturation, a small amount of unsharp mask, cloned out two small spots (stray stars in a mostly empty, blue-black sky), then resized to challenge dimensions.

Seems a tad over-saturated and the left foreground of the bank is distracting.
