Milton Ferry Bridge

By imaughan
Used a Lee Big Stopper on this.
Normal reading was 1/30 sec so tried it at 30 sec with the Big Stopper but was not happy with the result so increased it to 70 sec and this worked better.

A very handsome bridge and the trees at each end balance well. The smooth water could even be ice with some nice reflections and gives a wintery effect, which is enhanced by the overall blue cast which I presume you intended. It would be interesting to see it with more natural colours (or in mono even?) Very nice though.

The water looks like ice and the colour suggests freezing conditions. If that is the intention, it works.

I am a little bit lost with your picture. I know that you like the spot and the contrast of the solid bridge to the fluid water; you also seem to love that Lee Big Stopper and long exposures. I am not so sure if you would need a higher viewpoint and a downward inclining of the lens if the running water is your main subject, because as it appears here it is not such a big feature of the image. What strikes and puzzles me more is that there is NO movement on the trees during these 70 seconds!!!!!.

It is a possibility worth exploring as well.

I like the composition, and the feel of the slow moving water under the bridge and the sky has just the right amount of motion, but for me the overall light of the picture is flat it needs something to bring out the bridge within your shot.

Have uploaded a mod which hopefully gives you a idea of what I am talking about, ( YES the upload is crap and way too blue, but did not have a lot of time to work on it it is just there to show you)
