Leading Lines – 167

May 20, 2011

On Mother’s Day we went for a walk as a family. I was allowed/encouraged to bring my camera. We passed this railroad bridge which is still in service. It is on a line that connects Bridgeport CT with Waterbury CT. I applied Topaz Adjust and a grunge frame* from Essentials 3.

* I need to be clearer on the frame. I start with a grunge frame and blur it and reduce the opacity some. I then end up with more of a vignette then a frame.

    Really nice shot. I love the leading line. However, I am not noticing a grunge frame.

      You are right about what you see. I should have been clearer. I will post this also in my post. I start with a grunge frame and blur it and reduce the opacity some. I then end up with more of a vignette then a frame.

    That is a doozie of a Bridge, I would have to get on it, to find out why all that space on the left and what gives with the debris at the Pylon Base. Love quandries.

    I do like the picture very much, well done. If I only knew how to apply Topaz …

    It’s a complicated shot, but you’ve put the emphasis on the bridge, it’s structure and support.

    I like that you seem to have shot this from a higher position, but since when has bringing along your camera been deemed a privilege and not just a given, Mother’s day and all…LOL

    Lot of leading lines in this photo – the bridge supports, the rails, the bridge superstructure. Great capture!

    Lots going on in this, I love the lines of the rails echoed so many time is the structure. Nice smooth water on the right side.
