Bridge over the river Wharf

This is my first picture from today’s trip to Bolton Abbey. I think you can see what I was trying to do with it – I was attempting to get the bridge pin sharp with motion on the water. The river was extremely fast flowing and the stepping stones to the left of the bridge were submerged by a foot or so. I tried 8 or 9 of these shots and most wsere well over exposed, this and another one similar but closer to the edge and without any people visible are the only ones that made it on the peliminary cull. PP wise I\’ve done levels, curves, applied a deep blue filter to it to bring out the water a little and run a high pass sharpen on it before resizing to 800 on its longest edge. Really enjoyed the trip today, thank you all for coming and I hope we can do something again soon.

Not sure whether a crop on the grass at the bottom would damage it more than fix it.

  1. You\'re pictures of the Abbey are really nice, but I think this is great. I love the way you\'ve got the people very still with the motion of the river underneath.
