The Final Cut...

By Jasper87  
Hammersmith Bridge, last of the series. I've played with this one so many times to get the right balance of light and dark the title chose itself.

Last one from me after today as well, off to Slovenia & Croatia for a couple of weeks Grin.

Iso2000, f10, 1/13s, @ 26mm. Tripod & remote. I tried a lower Iso but the longer shutter blurred the leaves too much and the water lost its gloss and ripples.

I envy you. I went with my parents aged just 9 and have only a few
memories of it.
The awesome Postojna caves are one thing I recall very well.
Hope you get to see some of the caves and waterfalls. *sigh.

Enjoy your hols! Good angle on the bridge to lead the eye in and it looks especially pretty with the street lighting against the dusk sky. The foliage framing really makes the image for me, avoiding bland areas of featureless sky and focusing attention on the bridge. Personally I think this is one of your best bridg images ever. Did you see Dan Cruickshank's programme on the history of London's bridges? It's still on iplayer. Made me think of you as I watched it and I recognised a lot of the bridges from your portfolio!
