Girl walking dog near Peace Bridge Londonderry. Looking towards city side. Photo converted to sketch with software.



The Peace Bridge is a cycle and footbridge bridge across the River Foyle in Derry, Northern Ireland. It opened on 25 June 2011, connecting Ebrington Square with the rest of the city centre. Wikipedia

Address: Northern Ireland, Derry BT48

Construction started: January 2010

Opened: June 25, 2011

Total length: 235 m

Height: 36 m

Location: Derry

Bridge type: Footbridge, Self-anchored suspension bridge

The girl and her dog just walked into the frame after I had spent some time deciding on a location to shoot from. I think it made the photo.

I kept a hint of colour. In the foreground you might be able to make out the railway line, the only one into town. The bridge is serpentine and for pedestrian or cycle traffic. During the UK city of culture year 2013 when the city was the chosen city the bridge was often closed to public traffic and used as the entrance to a park area on the opposite bank.

It would take for ever to outline the buildings, structures and trees like this if done by hand. The transformation is almost magical and takes only one or two seconds.

Thanks. I downloaded a trial copy of Akvis Sketch a couple of years ago, liked the results and bought. Loads of variables that can be changed or adjusted, great fun Smile. Works well for buildings and structures. Results are almost instant with little or no changes to the default settings.
