Iron Bridge

By kforeman
Had a 6 hour train Journey to Telford friday 18th and on the Saturday we went to iron Bridge and it was great i took so many images i dont have enough online journels to put them on, ha ha

i took this picture a 1/2 mile away from the bridge as there was so much going on in the river.

can some one help me this picture looks good but there is some thing wrong with it and i cant put my finger on it, i couldn't do a face on as i would had to swim.

Nice view of 1/2 of the Iron-bridge !.......the full view is easy from the opposite bank of the river, an easy walk !, where you can get right down to water-level if need be...........

Hello, Katie. You have a good image that shows the detail on the bridge and the surrounding area. The image would benefit from having a good reflection of the bridge in the water, and it's a shame the foreground water wasn't still enough for this. The brightness of the water at the bottom tends to draw the eye away from the bridge, so I would suggest toning that down. I don't know this bridge, but would assume the walkway is flat and not sloping. Forgive me if I am wrong. I have done a modification where I used Perspective Correction to straighten the bridge, cropped and cloned in a bit more water at the bottom. I then adjusted levels, used the Burn Tool to darken the water and light grass bottom left, and removed the blue cast, adding more green. I finished with a high pass sharpen. I am not sure if I have hit upon the area that you feel is wrong.

Just a note for Pamelajean.......the photo of Ironbridge bridge, is structuraly correct !.....the stone pillar is upright, & the top deck of the bridge is sloping as shown, to an apex at the centre of the span, then descends
in a similar manner on the other side !......similar to the roof of a house, only with a shallow may look like distortion, but it isn't, this photo is exactly what it looks like !!!!
