Santa Rosa, NM Train Trestle



This is a late 1920's era Union Pacific Railroad train trestle in Santa Rosa, NM. It's a handheld three exposure HDR with my Olympus E-3 and 12-60 lens.

Cool shot Larry!

I really like the way the light is hitting the tracks at the most distant point. The light draws your eye all the way through the photo. Also I really like the nice dynamic composition and the subtly dramatic sky.

Well done!

This has a nice composition and like Barry I like the lighting and the sky. I would suggest cropping up from the bottom to get rid of the light colored and blurry plants there, or clone them out, because my eye goes right there...but the image has a lot of space down there so I think you could lose that and it would keep your eye on the bridge. It is an interesting angle and image.

Did I ever tell you I like Rocks? The next best thing I like is Bridges! This photo has a mystical look to me because of the lighting which I admire very much. Great capture!

This must be bridge day. I did not get the message!

I think this type of bridges are great to photograph. They have suck elegant lines that really move you through the photograph to that great sky. If this was my photo, I would probably crop it from the bottom. There is some not-so-interesting bushes down there that do not add much. I think the crop would make the lines of bridge more pronounced.

Really good work.
