Beautiful images. I especially like the first photo. All have a great retro feel, sort of like the "Sky Captain" look. (Unless you hated that movie; in that case forget what I wrote).

I live about 25 miles from Philly in North Wales, PA. I have crossed the BF bridge many times, but I never saw it like you show it in your photos. Really nice.

What were they shot with and how did you post-process (assuming that they are digital captures)?

Thanks for sharing.

Those were taken with a Nikon D70 (just bought a D300 two day ago). The processing was done in Photoshop and PhotoKit. I live 200 feet from the bridge so I have a chance to shoot and re-shoot a lot. I print these at 10" x 10" on Crane Museo Silver Rag paper using an Epson 4880.

Thanks

I really like all of them--thought I had a favorite and then you posted the others LOL.  The prints must be lovely--esp. on that paper and with the approach you took both to how you shot them and the processing.  What a treat it must be to be that near and have the opportunity to shoot over and over under varied conditions, viewpoints, etc.

I can't add much beyond what has been said already - what a great collection of images, both technically and aesthetically!

You have a good eye for composition, and I love the tonality in these shots.

Converted to B&W in Photoshop then toned using the Platinum setting in Photokit
