Post-work: Crop / Monochrome / Levels Related items: --
The image was taken October 2004 upon Newcastle's High-Level Bridge crossing the Tyne. It was a manky day, and the arches of the bridge had a vertigous effect upon me. I've been there once before at night and it plays hell with your mind. Maybe one day I'll return at night with a camera, but for now this particularly uninspiring image is all I have to share.
The image has came out a lot darker than I would've liked, and for once I didn't back-up the original image. I think I have some colour-balance issues with my monitor. Which is insane, given that it's set to sRGB standard.
Thanks. It's not quite as dramatic as I would have liked; I'm planning on returning at some point in the near future as the weather here is nearing what I would like it to be. I've already got a heavily revised set of words to go with. Anyway, thanks again for the comment.
no, but perhaps a different light or a different height in the shooting point. Try tilting upwards maybe ?
Or you could try to use it as a "background", say by butting a model in the foreground (ok, that was the most trivial idea, but anything else, an animal or even a part of the structure itself could be used )
I really should have noticed this. Anyway! This was a snapshot on an overcast day - so as for viewing angles and lighting and similar, that is something I shall try next time I am there. I would like to get one in bright daylight to start with, as the contrast between the sunbeams and the shadow is impressive. Same with a night-shot and the street-lights.
I've also had the idea of having a hooded figure walk towards the camera, slow shutter-speed and that. I tried photo-manipulating it but it looked fairly awful, same with sticking a figure in the far background. I'd rather capture it naturally anyway.
So. Thanks muchly for the comments. It's refreshing to get something more than "wow, cool!" - not that those aren't appreciated, mind.
