This is the North Bend bridge. The teasel was a lovely shade of purple. The grain (applied in Silver Efex) and the out of focus bridge are intentional.
This is a departure for you. And a very appealing and successful one at that.
I really enjoy this lovely soft focus.

@Dulcie: Thanks, Dulcie. Doing a series can get boring if one doesn't inject a little variety.

Awesome work of art! I love the softness and the grain...It makes this a very timeless shot. Beautiful!

I like the special effects you created in this shot. The close focus and blurred bridge work out very well. Nice job of shooting and processing.

@Betty: Thanks, Betty.
Very well done.
30 Aug 2009 2:25pm
Is that really an old shot? Or the result of your amazing processing work?
30 Aug 2009 3:09pm
@Ajay: It was shot on our recent Charleston trip. The credit for the processing goes to Silver Efex Pro. Before the conversion, I did soften the bridge a bit more.
30 Aug 2009 3:23pm
@Steve Rice: Thank you.
Indeed a vintage shot. The mood really takes me back in time. (from photography stand point, not age)
The process is an excellent match for the scene. You are correct about variety.
Life can be so rigid and routine, ones creative view can expand life immensely.
Well done, Jack.

@Barbara: Thanks, Barb. What I find with series is that the photographer often sees each shot as quite unique; while to the viewer, they can seem quite similar. For example, I have a whole bunch of what I think are great shots of sea stacks, but I decided to limit myself to one for Am3. Possibly at some future date, I will haul out another one.
Very nice composition with great processing and tones. I like the DOF and bridge is really nice.

Very cool processing :)) I like that bridge in distance .

@MARIANA: Thanks, Mariana.

31 Aug 2009 2:19am
@Nadia Olisa: Thank you.
A splendid job of processing Jack. Almos as if a pinhole camera was used to take this shot.
31 Aug 2009 2:49am
@Lee: Thanks. I have a friend who does major work with a pinhole camera.
Wow! This is so beautiful! Your treatment take one back in time...stunning work Jack!
31 Aug 2009 3:38am
@bluechameleon: Thanks, Sharon. I like the way that it printed, but Ellie is not quite as enamored as I am. One of the best parts about photography is diversity of opinion, both for photographers and for viewers. It certainly makes it easier to just go ahead and try to please oneself.
absolument géniale ! i love !
31 Aug 2009 7:18am
@Annie Viguié: Merci.
Wow, this one is GOERGEOUS and i LOVE it WHOLE !

@dj.tigersprout: Thanks, dj. It came at the end of a long day of shooting. The main span of the bridge is cyan, and the teasel was purple.
LOVE this Jack!! Absolutely excellent mood ... Excellent nostalgic image!
