Vanishing Bridge

October 17th, 2011

A shot out the window while driving over the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California. It seemed to disappear into the fog.

Converted to black and white and touched up a bit in Adobe Photoshop.

Nikon D3100, Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, Photoshop CS5.

This is what I like, typically. Black & White + Very simple.

The part where the bridge disappears lacks quality, the fog is sort of pixelised and that prevents me from downloading the picture.

A stunning image. At first I could't tell whether I was seeing the bridge cables from above or below. It took a few moments for the tower arch to get my attention and resolve the context.

As for the grain in the fog, that would be easy to clean up in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom - which handles grain and sharpness better than Photoshop alone can do. It would have been better to clear this up, though, before converting the image to black and white. Nevertheless, I find this a very effective image. A truly unique view like this of the Golden Gate bridge is hard to come by.

I like this image as it is a nice composition, B&W (which doesn't appear often here) and it is an original view of the famous bridge.

To add to the comments above, I'd say that I don't mind the grain at all. Sometimes it adds to the image, and in this case it sort of work. But if it wasn't intentional, I'd check how to remove it in Lightroom or Photoshop. Maybe having a smooth gradient might improve the serenity of the general image. Thanks for sharing though!

Thanks for the feedback! I went and got Cyberlink Photo Director which has a pretty good noise removal tool. I'll make sure to process the photo a little more next time.

I like it. The grain doesn't bother me at all I've seen much worse. If anything it's the lack of detail in the cabling that kinda bugs me. I just wish you could see more of the texture and underside of the cable. Still, it's different, which is very good. Maybe you just need a better camera because there's only so much Photoshop can do. Although some people wish they could have even a decent camera like yours so just feel lucky you have an artist's eye. Keep the unique shots coming! =)
