Under the Bridge 2
« on: February 05, 2013, 11:03:45 PM »

Taken the same morning as, and immediately to the left of, the first "Under the Bridge" image. The sun had just breached the horizon and you can see it in the top left trying to break through the fog. It was unsuccessful.

Both of your "Under the Bridge" pix are quite lovely, with gorgeous tonalities. If I had to pick one as a favorite, it would have to be the first one.

Very captivating and beautifully executed. Interesting. I don't have the first one in front of me, but by recollection I think the first was stronger over all with more interest. But both are very nice.

I have to agree about the first "Under the bridge" image, it was also a favorite of mine. This one is more industrial and the sun adds a bit of warmth to the scene.

It's a fine shot, Marv. I'll disagree with everybody else. I like this one better than the first one, mainly because of the light. But they're both very fine.

Thank you for that, Russ. I'm a bit embarrassed at how often I agree with you, so it's refreshing to disagree even a little.
But I'll admit that the light in the second one is a special treat.

I love the ethereal quality of both of these images, the smooth transitions in contrast, and the muted colors. Image 2 sort of anchors the first, provides a bit of context for the intense dream-like aspect of the first. I think the movement left and right in image 1 is very successful as well. I gotta find some fog!

Russ beat me to it but I also like the second over the first and for the same reason..as well as there is less to make me think about, more just to ooze into. Very nice!
