Friar Gate Bridge - Long Exposure night time photograph of this structure.

Back in October 2010 when it was announced that the bridge was going to be covered in netting I made a point of going out to take lots of photographs of Friar Gate Bridge before the look of it was ruined forever.
Some of the photographs I took were at night using a long exposure time to capture the light trails of cars driving under the bridge.

Here is one such photograph, I took this photograph using my old Olympus C5050Z set to full manual control. The exposure time is 0.77s I did a quick rough and ready clean up and selective desaturation of the view to create something which I liked the look of.

I have a better version of this in which I spent a lot of time cleaning up the bridge, which I turned into a nice looking large framed print for Christmas.

If you like my photograph then please leave some comments to this post and the reasons why you like it.
