Took these shots of the new Helix Bridge at our recent Pentax monthly outing.
Decided to boost up the colors radically...

Shot with the K-7 with DFA 100mm Macro WR

Two shots with a modified for IR Pentax *ist DL2 and DA 10-17mm fisheye

I can't believe nobody has commented yet! The first two are simply amazing. The first would undoubtedly win a patterns competition, while the second one for complementary colors

The first one with its clear graphics is my favourite, followed by the last one. In the last one, there is some colour clipping, but that's fine for me, as the image is somewhat otherwordly anyway.

Thes second image is the most "normal" one and, being framed by the other two, is not quite as strong, in my opinion.

Not normally a HDR fan but these are outstanding! First and the third are my favorites, but the clouds and sky in the second one have beautiful color. These are the kinds of pictures that make me want to push myself further as photographer. Thanks for sharing.

I've never seen a bridge constructed in this manner.

Great shots Dennis. Thanks for sharing.

Your work is starting to shine and almost a signature that says " this is Denis's work!" Great PP work. JIM

I clicked on this thread expecting to find yet another one of those overdone HDR photos. I could not have been more wrong! Excellent!
