Line of the Bridge

Another shot from the early morning shoot last week.  From the same location of the “Green Pool in the Morning” picture.  I used a processing technique shared earlier today on Scott Wyden‘s blog – a guest post by Rob Hanson.  The post from Scott’s blog can be found here.  The other post on Rob’s blog can be found here.  Both offer a wealth of information – both original and shared – from their Twitter accounts: @scottwyden and @robhansonphoto.

  1. Very nice! I’m glad you found the technique useful. It seems very effective in this image because of the strong contrast between the white snow and the darker pavement and bridge.

    • Thank-you! I certainly appreciate the comment. I did try it on another image, but there was a lack of contrast and depth in the final result. I am eager to try it on a few past images as well. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

  2. My pleasure.

    Be sure to play around with both blend modes and opacity of the B&W layer. For some images, it’s just not terribly effective, but when it works, I find that it works very well, and I incorporate the shadowmap into at least 75% of my images. The more contrast and hard edges you have, the better it seems to work.

    Have fun, and let me know if I can help with anything. //Rob
