Puente de Monteolivete

By ghibby  
Itís been a while since I last uploaded anything on EPZ. Hope you are all doing well!! I thought I would finish my Valencia series on one of my favourite shots of the trip.

This is the structure carrying the Puente de Monteolivete road across the City of Arts and Sciences. The raised section of road runs in between Hemesferic and the Palau De Les Arts Reina Sofia. The clean lines of the structure drew my eye as I walked underneath, this was a quick shot taken just before the images I shot of the Hemesferic that morning. The light was just right to balance the early sunlight in the sky and the artificial lighting in the scene. Only a few minutes later and the lighting was switched off.

Minimal processing done to this, just the basic round of adjustments in Camera RAW and about half a stop to darken the exposure for the sky.

Exposure 6.0 Seconds @ F10.0 ISO-100 and 32mm Focal Length.

Yes! a gathering of lines composed by a well trained eye-- but it is the light and lights that set this off so well-- A fantastic image all around! No wonder it is a favorite!

Thanks for the comments guys and girls. David thanks for the critique too, I may well have a little play with the darkness in the sky.
