The Bridge

The Bridge. The strong lines of a bridge over the Zollkanal in Hamburg, Germany, benefitting from some strong early afternoon sun to provide stark contrast. The top of the mooring post in the bottom right corner nicely fills the space and provides some balance. In the conversion to monochrome I darkened down what had been a lightish blue sky to emphasise the curve of the steelwork, and also took the building on the right almost down to black to take out any distraction and provide a good visual anchor at the end of the bridge.

Technical: NIKON D800, f=24.0 mm, ISO160, 1/400 sec @ f8.0
