Trinity Bridge, Manchester

By TrevBatWCC    
More raking of the archives, trying to find something Iíve not used on EPZ before. This is going way back to 2008 on a trip to Manchester. Crossing the River Irwell towards the Salford side is the Trinity Footbridge. On reaching the far side there's this tall pylon for the bridge's supporting cables and thought it something a bit different and would make a good lead image. On reprocessing, it seems to work better in mono than colour. The version shows a wider view of the bridge, and in colour, looking across to the pylon side, with the Lowry Hotel in the centre of the image.
The lead was shot with the Nikon 18-55mm lens at 55mm, the version with the Sigma 10-20mm and at 10mm.

Making clear sense out of complexity. This is so beautiful, in a cool, aloof, brittle sort of way. Garbo as architecture...
Edit - the version appeared while I was typing, it deserves its own upload.

The version is a pleasant photo of the bridge, the lead is a superb photo in its own right. Well seen and excellently processed, the pylon has the look of a space ship as visualised 50 years ago. A top drawer image, and one I'd love to have taken.

Clearly two very different images, with the version a good shot in its own right but also a scene-setter for the lead. The lead is extremely strong in its simplicity and use of geometric lines, which b&w depicts perfectly. An obvious award-winner.

Excellent in every respect Trev, well worthy of all those awards, mine included.
The lead mono is particularly good, and my favourite. Smile
