I don't know about you but I really like bridges. Here are some of the muscle bridges that I can never get tired of shooting in NYC. I took these while bike riding from Queens to Manhattan (except for Gapstow in B&W).

D300 & 17-55mm or 18-200 VR lens @ ISO 200.

'Moody' Bridges [0.8s at f/7.1]

Love the Hell's Gate Bridge, Dez - I don't remember you ever showing us a photo of that one before. And I definitely like the HDR job. I'm not a fan of the technique, because sometimes folk can get heavy handed at it, but yours is very, very well done and looks completely natural...

Very nice NYD :smile:
I like the life size gnome in shot 4, very realistic :wink:
I'm not that keen on the Queensboro Bridge shot, it feels too distant and needs some foreground interest.

Great series, Dez, but I do have to agree with Sir Angel re. the 59th St. Bridge - you can do better than that! :)

Thanks Lyndee. I am a fan of HDR when it's not overdone. I only use it when I can't expose the shadows and bright areas in one frame, so I'll bracket :smile:

The Gapstow Bridge in b&w looks awesome Dez. That one is by far my favorite of the set. Thanks for showing us your bridges.

God Bless,
David
Thank you David. I took that over the winter and decided to give it a soft mood, so I PPed that effect.

Excellent set. I like the shots of Brooklyn, Gapstow (BW) and Hell Gate best.
Glad you liked :smile:

All nice. However, for me the Brooklyn Bridge picture is really awesome. The overall sharpness is amazing!

Thank you Rui. That was with the 18-200 VR :wink:

The credit goes to the bridges :biggrin:

Gapstow Bridge in color is quite nice!
Thank you. My favorite bridge in Central Park :smile:

Thanks but what is a gnome?

LOL. I never shot the full length. Only bits & pieces :redface:

Here's a couple that are probably better than that:

Hey Dez like the quiet serene Gapstow Bridge in colour but really like the Brooklyn Bridge. It looks so substantial and imposing from any angle. It's just NY for me.

Great set, Dez, but you always seem to ignore my personal favorite, the GWB:

Fantastic Rich. I don't ignore that bridge. I just never get up there and would like to get the GWB in my collection.

Perhaps we can meet up some time to shoot it?

Thanks :smile:

You did a great job with lighting and perspective on this series. The first, with its nice subdued evening tones, and last, with the strong blue sky and radiating clouds, are my favorites.
