unda da umba

By ade_mcfade      
Every tog who drives past the humber has to get one of these I guess.

this is from the Heddon side - nearly up to my ankles in claggy mud to get this!!

Took it on sunday with the 15mm jobby, had a bit of fun with the sun but decided that haging a huge white disk there was a little more unusual than the other 500 versions of this shot.

Actually quite like the position of it to be honest.

Cheers Caleb

I did 3 exposures, this is just the dark one and a bit of the light one for the under-decking.

quite fancy a trip there for a sunset one night - can imagine you could get some nice effects. got to be quick thought with the nights drawing in

it's a mile long!

well I think that's just fron pier to pier -= doesn't include the approach roads.

was the biggest in the world, then Japan beat it I think

Nice to see a BW version, like the sun on it, and you've handled the difficult exposure well.
Good one.

But no,
But yeah,
But no,
But yeah...

It's OK, but the contrast that you've got in the foreground isn't echoed across the underside of the decking, so it seems a little wrong. Like it, but there's something missing from this. Not as good as other recent stuff.

You had that 15-30 fixed yet btw, or is this wide open?

wide open... and it shows... but the 15mm ones were sexier than the 24mm ones really.

good point on the contrast below - will do a curve on that if I can be arsed Smile

the main issue is doing a HDR type thing really - I've yet to be convinced by that approach, there was no other way of getting detail below and above deck on this - but the result still looks pretty false.

having said that, do a search for humber bridge, you'll see some shots with 50+ clicks... I still prefer this - but I would wouldn't i Smile

S'not the DOF... I'm pretty impressed with that lens of yours for retaining detail all the way through despite being wide open. You're never gonna get a "proper" HDR from just three shots though, certainly not across this range... I reckon 5 is the minimum, and probably more when you've got such an extreme range.

How you finding that 5D btw? I got a hankering for one that don't seem to go away! ;o)

Works for me ade!!

Not sure if a HDR is needed though to be honest. But if ya wanna try one then thats up ta you buddy!!

Never been to it! Been past it but had no gear with me..One day i may pay it a visit

well it's not really HDR but 2 exposures on top of each other - the light one masked out then just painted back in slightly to bring it out a bit.

Not sure I'd go all that way JUST for the bridge Dave, well maybe, but def.worth a stop. I'll try the south side one day

Hi mate .. yes a common view whether from the Barton Upon Humber side or the Hessle side (Hessle actually ... Hedon is the other side of Hull) but I guess it is rude not to do it if you are there. The bridge seems higher on the Hessle side .. I am sure it is as the path uner the Humber on the Barton side is much farther down the approach road.

I really like the effect you've created. I used to drive over that bridge quite regularly, but never took a photo of it, and now I'm wishing I had.
