This is an image of the George Washington Bridge shot from the approach road to the boat ramp below the NJ tower.

Funny I made my presence known to all the security guards at the Bridge and still was questioned by the Port Authority Police. This lady officer was very nice though; she is a good reflection on the PA Police.

I shot this with a Hoya 67mm R92 filter on the camera in RAW. Adjustments made in the raw file were, exposure, sharpness, curves, saturation, vignette of +68 with a midpoint of 7.

After entered into CS2, converted Image Size to 640x480, USM, LVLS, and Saved for the web at 72dpi.

Sorry, I'm not a big fan of IR shots. The cloud movement is interesting. Looks like a nice shot other than the IR. Wonder what it looks like in color? ;^)

This just seems too bright to me. The shadow on the road seems distracting too

Seems more like it belongs in the framing challenge. What does the long exposure do for this image?

Not a IR fan, but I am also not a fantasy fan. At any rate, I don't vote on my personal likes or dislikes, you captured a great image that is technically well done, and the composition is also fantastic. GL.

The composition is a bit off. I think the center pillar of the bridge needs to be more to the right and there should be much less road and more white trees.
