Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: 30 Seconds or More (Basic Editing III*)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Location: Soute Platte River, Colorado
Date: Jun 20, 2006
Galleries: Nature, Water
Date Uploaded: Jun 20, 2006

This bridge is just around the corner from my place. I pass it many times over in a week. This area is called Confluence Park, where the South Platte River and the Cherry Creek run into each other. Anyway, I had the image of qmdi as an entry for the bokeh challenge (the one where he is profiled with mountains in background), but at 9:30 my time (with 30 mins to spare) I was like, you know, I will run down to Confluence Park, shoot, run back and upload. I took 2, two pictures and ran back. After nearly getting attacked by a sizeable Bull Mastiff, I came inside did a very quick editing job (very simplel) and submitted.

So kids, sometimes late entries do work. And this is my first blue, so I will bask, if only for a week.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2006 01:32:43 PM
Ok, this is very nice. Only tiny thing would be the blue that does not really match with the rest of the colours. (little too light) but nevertheless beauty
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2006 10:52:44 AM
This looks really crisp and detailed, and the colours from the sky to the lights casting off the water are incredibe.

06/23/2006 10:18:00 AM
Appropriate title considering the elements definitely came together for you in this shot. Georgious!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2006 07:42:56 AM
The exposure for the image is spot on. In my opinion, to make the star effect work better try using f/16, f/22, etc....the smaller you make the aperture the sharper the star.
