Challenge: Free Study X (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Location: Newcastle Tyneside North Quay, looking west
Date: Jan 19, 2006
Aperture: f/5.0
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1.3s
Galleries: Cityscape, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Jan 25, 2006

Twighlight shot of the Gateshead Millenium Bridge with the Newcastle Tyne high level bridge in the background, also the Baltic Art Centre and the Sage Concert Venue on the left.
It was cold and very windy - used a monopod and taped it to a bollard but really needed a tripod. Set -1.3 exposure compensation.
Post Processing: Capture One crop and tilt by 1 degree; -0.4 EC, 20% CS, sharpen 148 at 3, full noise and colour noise suppression. NeatImage to smooth the clouds a bit and sharpen, Adobe CS2: burned the highlights on Baltic Centre, increased saturation by 3, image resize with a little USM and save for web.
Would love to revisit and take on a calm night to capture the reflections in the water, as so many others have done before me!

Nice composition. I like how you have reflected light from both sides of the river. plus there are lots of arch shapes all over the composition. Nice job

Nice clear, sharp image. Good exposure. I like the way you captured the lighting of the arch against the dark clouds.
