Bridging the contrast

Yesterday I posted a image from a tunnel view, today the railway bridge of Riga, between the north and south shore of the Daugava river.

The sun was setting and I positioned the camera in such way that the sun was behind one of the bridge's construction beams to create a huge contrast between bridge construction sky and river.

PP work, adjusted levels and curves, contrast and brightness. Resized and sharpened, add frame.

Hi Hans,
A well chosen POV,resulting in an interesting image. A detailed,sharp silhouette.I like the cloud formation & the tinges of pinks mixed in them.
Appreciate the tips in your notes.
I've turned off my points system so cant leave any,this is a Thumbs up image for sure.

Hello Hans,

Lovely, moody, evening shot where the warmth of the day is giving way to the mysteries of the 'blue hour'.
Fine composition with the silhouetted bridge leading, iagonally to a strong diappearing point.

My warmest regards,
Bev :-)

I love it! And I can see what you were seeing here! I love the BLUE aspect of the shot. It's super sharp, the OE in the water is totally appropriate, LOVE the mood of this shot!. Your framing is tasteful and nice also! OH OH!! Also, I see a "sun dog"..a rainbow in the clouds caused by ice crystals!
