    Couldn't think of a clever title :confused:

    On my way down underneath this overpass, I was hoping to be able to catch some cars with some blurred motion, but it wasn't possible. So, instead I just tried to be creative.

    this one I like a lot.
    I love the blue-cement contrast.

    I like the bridge that has the poles more than the plain one

    well done

    Thanks! I agree. I thought it was weird that they were constructed differently?

    Awesome! Is this two merged photos? How'd you get the sky so bright but not silhouette the bridges? :confused: I really like it!

    Thanks. Single shot. Underexpose :mrgreen:

    After I made my main adjustments, (including contrast) I created a layer, increased the contrast again, and then erased the contrast that was added to the bridge.

    Ohhh, and the polarizer really helps! It helps give me a nice dark sky to start with, so when I lighten the shot, it doesn't overexpose the sky.

    Thanks for the explanation and tips! I have a polarizer, it's time for me to get off my butt and use it. :D

    Cool sky!! I'm not quite sure the composition works for me here. It reaches for abstract, but my eye grasps what it is almost immediately and that kind of ruins it for me. But, that could just be because I am from Texas, the land of many concrete jungle overpasses. LOL

    pretty cool, I like it a lot

    for some reason reminds me of the bottom of a spaceship or something...

    It's different, good exposure and sharpness...
