Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge by Night
Posted By: MO-bran, 07-26-2009, 12:26 PM

Comments on these three shots please. Taken with a k10d, 18-55mm pentax lens. First shot was 3 sec, f/4, ISO 100 at 18mm; second shot was 30 sec, f/20, ISO 100 at 18mm; and third shot was 1/4 sec, f/5.6, ISO 100 at 50mm.

This is a suspension type bridge and when people are walking or moving the bridge does have movement on it, even with the tripod.

Nice captures.
Problem with #1 (not sure if you noticed) is that YOU'RE in the photograph as well (see your shadow?).
Otherwise, reasonably well exposed and composed in #2 & 3.
I like #3 best because of its perspective and curvature, although the vertical pole isn't straight in the photo.

Otherwise good effort.

Thanks for the info. I did see my shadow and have a copy with it cropped out. I tried to clone it out but it didn't work so well. The columns in most of my photos seem to be leaning. I was wondering if it was made to look like that. Thanks again and I will keeping trying.
