Great sun rays!

Terrific shot. By happenstance, I just read that the bridge opened this day in 1883. I imagine you knew that as well, but if not, your shot was in the stars as well as in starlight.

Ymir said...

Sidney said...

Fantastic perspective and view! Didn't knew this bridge was that old!

Andres said...

great composition. Not easy one to capture, with the sun in the front. We can see all th details of the bridge and the rythim of it's design. Exellent work.

BobC said...

Very nice image and the rays are great. I've got to say that your black and white shots are consistently amongst the best I've seen.

You earn a coveted "I Likey" from the Subster.

Good eye, Good shot, Good conversion.

Heath said...

I really like this one. The colour version was good, but the B&W version is fantastic!

micki said...

Well now, it's another one of your best pieces of work! The sunburst rays that match so wonderfully with the cables of the bridge-stunning. You could probably sell this shot easily all over Brooklyn. And anywhere else, for that matter.

thanks for all comments...i did some post-process in this shot more than usual such as: masking, colors range in different blend mode, curve& levels and channel mixer, but not on HDR....original quite bit dark coz backlight. i try to bright out the detail in the shadow specially on the tower section, result looks kinda surreal:-)

Legabal said...

Awesome. They had to pass many beams of the Sun for the former Brooklyn Bridge Often in 113 years(Dave) The photographer joins your name and signature with light.^.

david said...

far better in black and white than colour; shows how effective a decent bit of processing can be. well done.
