Franz Josef Bridge
The Franz Josef Bridge and river just outside of Franz Josef are a fantastic place to hang out in the night and go some shooting. At first I thought that the bridge would detract from the stars that I was trying to capture. After a few test shots I could see that the yellow of the lights would compliment the blue in the sky very nicely. Then when I saw a car was about to drive across the bridge I decided to take advantage of the effect the headlights would give during a long exposure. I could not predict the exact result, but I thought it was a good experiment anyway.
Image edited in Intensify CK, and Lightroom. I’m always very surprised with the dramatic effects that long exposure photography can produce. It’s always a rewarding experience to get out in the night and just experiment. The great thing with digital is that this experimentation costs nothing except maybe some lost sleep.
