Paths Under Arches

A recent photo taken during a recent walk.

This was taken in partly to see how I’d capture this particular area now compared to when I last took a photo of it, which was a few years ago at this point in time.

Similar, yet different.

I think there’s a good sense of size and spread seen in the first arch and its cables. The second arch is less visible, but still feels quite large, I think.

I like how the angle affects the spread of the cables and helps to further impose the structural size of the bridge.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-thirty-fourth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “From Forgettable to Memorable“.

The idea behind this one is (as far as I’m aware) showing a photo before and after processing.

The first version of this image shows before processing is from before I started processing. Whilst there are some aspects of it I like, I preferred the processed version, though it’s a little darker than the area was when I took the photo.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This week’s challenge is curated by Tina. The next one will be guest-curated by Sheetal of Sheetal Thinks Aloud.

The challenges are pretty fun and there’s a lot of room for interpretation that doesn’t get in the way of enjoyment. If you’re into photography, then I suggest participating, or at the least checking out what other people are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

    Very subtle edit SH, which is always the best kind. I actually like both versions!

    I like the angle that you used to capture this part of a bridge. My father was a civil engineer, and he always pointed out parts of bridge construction. The clouds improved in the second version.

      I find certain bridges (such as this one) structurally interesting to photograph. This one has a lot out of photos of it out there, but I think there still are a few ways in which it can be shown that may offer a newish viewpoint. Perhaps not so much this photo however, haha.
