Salon 247 - Bridges
 
For this Salon I thought we'd tackle a subject that offers myriad possibilities. I'm sure everyone has examples in their files or access to bridges that can be captured creatively. They can be large like the Golden Gate bridge or small like the biking bridge in the examples below. I'm looking forward to what you come up with!

1. All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/

They can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon thread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 1000 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2. As agreed previously, TWO entries maximum per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3. Entries should be ‘in line’ within the thread (not as a link to an image held somewhere else).

4. Comments on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5. After the close, the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6. The curator’s decision is final.

7. The winner will be invited to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

8. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that ‘honour’ to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10. As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

Closing date Midnight, Sunday 5th August (UK time)

A few examples:

Nice view, Gez. I have walked over that bridge on numerous occasions. But never seen it form that spot.

If you are interested, this was taken (but not actually used in the end) for an article to demonstrate how you can use bracketing and HDR to produce a normal, undramatic, tone result. It's five images exposed from -2EV to +2EV at 1EV steps and merged to HDR in Lightroom.



Here is the same view with a camera JPEG, unadjusted:

The camera used was an old Olympus Pen E-PL3, which has a sensor known to have not great dynamic range.



It's the bridge over the Grand Union Canal in Apsley just a few minutes from my home.

My sincere apologies for taking so long to post the winner. I've been in France the last two weeks and my iPhone X was the victim of a pickpocket my second day in Paris. I just returned to my home in Vermont and I'm headed for bed. I promise to post the winner in the morning.

Okay, I've had a few hours sleep. It's 0125 but the body clock says it's time to get up.

Some great entries (nine if I counted right). My eye keeps getting drawn back to andym's Pythonbrug. Over to you andym.

I bet that put the dampers on your holiday, for a while. Hope your insurance covers the phone.


What a bummer.

Good call, Pat.

Andy's Pyhtonbrug is a curious looking bridge.

Well done Andy.
