(Olympus E-3, 14-54mm at 27mm (2x crop factor), ISO 100, exposure 1/60 sec @ f/7.1)

This is a fairly standard shot of the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City. This is a shot of one of the towers that I took as I was walking from Manhattan to Brooklyn. This was the first time I had walked on the bridge and it was an interesting experience. I think the thing that struck me the most was the geometric patterns created by all the suspension wires. I tried to capture that in this shot. In processing, I converted from color to black and white and then added a sepia tone. I also added a bit of simulated film grain to give a more vintage feeling to the image.

Comments and feedback welcome.

  • I really like your Brooklyn Bridge sepia photo from Dec 2008. I want to hang an 18 x 24 image in a frame in a bedroom. I don’t know anything about why to choose lustre over matte. Could you help? It will be on a light wall with medium light, in a brown frame.

    Right now, I plan to just use an off the shelf frame/glass. If it would make it look a whole lot better, I’d go to the frame shop and get the museum quality glass. But for right now it will be in the off the shelf frame.

    I’d appreciate any help.
