Support Beams


(f9.0,  1/125sec, +1.0EV, ISO100, 55mm)
I've learned so much from this blog!!  Thank you for the great comments.  Its really pushed me to do things with my camera and look at things in a completely different way!  One of the best things that I have done is started reading my camera manual!  You should see it, that poor little book is so torn apart (I take it everywhere with me).  So I want to give that as a little advice!!  READ YOUR MANUAL (again and again).  I've learned so much about my camera that I didn't even know it could do!! Its been a lot of fun!

I really love this picture! Great job! I put tabs all over in my manual and laminated the cover with packing tape... I know, I'm such a nerd. ;)

What a beautiful photo. I love bridges, especially steam beam ones like this. I really like the mild subdued tones here, with the natural brown against the dirty green. The only thing I would change (if anything) is to reverse the focus, so that the wildflowers/weeds are out of focus, and the bridge is in focus. It's beautiful as is, though.

Wow, I love how the plants in the foreground are in focus, but you still see and focus on the bridge first. Really neat effect.

Katy said...

this is totally beautiful... i too love the focusing and angles... you did an amazing job!!! oh and the sky looks like it's glowing around the bridge... so cool!

Love this idea- I wanted to do a brigde also- but ran out of time. I actually wish the bridge was in sharper focus in this picture- as that is what your topic is. How do you choose your focal points?

Malissa said...

This is a really good shot. Love the idea and how you set it up. Nice job.

This is one of my favorite pictures. It's the contrast between man vs. nature. We support each other. (for the most part! lol)

Which camera do you have? I love the way this looks how the flowers are in focus and the bridge is semi-blurred. Great job!

Teryn said...

You follow the beginning, middle, end rule perfect here. It really makes it interesting to look at as opposed to just some picture of a bridge. Very well done!

Amanda,
I use a Sony Alpha. Its a DSLR, nothing really fancy, but I love it all the same. With this picture I used MF to focus on what I wanted. I did also take some pictures of the bridge in focus, but I liked it better as the background.
