A wow from me Adam, a striking shot.

Thanks Gary and Steve.  I am a little cold on the image and think it could use a big tilt upward with a 4x5 so that more of the bridge (and underbelly thereof) is visible and less of the water, while maintaining perfect verticals.

And fortunately Marc @MT0227 has a beautiful Linhof 4x5 with all the trimmings for us to use for the execution on this... :)

 

Thoughts?

You'd have to go pretty wide to do that at such close range*. 

If I am going be critical, I agree, there is a little too much foreground and i would like to see a little more of the bridge above.  How much more bridge above depends somewhat on what the sky is doing.

I do like the way you have framed that old slum tenement tower block within the bridge pier and the detail and tonal rendition throughout the image is gorgeous.

*ETA: Just saw that you used a 180mm on 6x9.  You wouldn't need to go very wide on 5x4 in that case!

I appreciate that feedback, Steve.  I totally agree.  You really need at least a normal FL lens in order to get the compression with the Freedom tower and the Manhattan Bridge.  But I am so bored by the extra water in the foreground and would love to see more of the beautiful architectural details in the Bridge.  That's why I was thinking if I used a 4x5 and gave it an upward tilt I could achieve this while keeping the verticals.  Think it's more tricky that I am making it sound?

I agree, and apart from the time/effort, what have you to lose? Go for it.

Have you thought about 6X17 framed up vertically to include all of the water, the reflection, dramatizing the sandwiched view through the bridge girders? One-third is water, and two-thirds is architecture.

Effective diptych with the counterpoint of in-focus and out-of-focus POV, playful giggling soundtrack, a real moment to cherish. The OOF shot really makes it.

Great shot, Adam! However, what impresses me most in this image is not the viewpoint, although strong as well. What I find very "educational" is how the big volume of the bridge's foot dominates the frame is such a compositionally perfect way! The size of an object in an image is known to be a fundamental element of good composition that is very difficult to capture constructively. I myself usually fail, being more successful with lines and texture. Anyway, really thanks for sharing it here.

Ernest, great compositions again. I find it very difficult to comment on them because they seem to need long and deep pondering to value them adequately, - may I just look at them as "Eye Candy" ?

This is too fabulous for words, Klaus. To think that cloning was already so advanced in 1995!

Thank you, unlike the picture suggests, the two were completely  different characters..

now that's what I call making proper use of the square format.. I know the problem, the 80 Planar is a great lens, but sometimes a bit long..Great shot anyway.

Your MF photos of Venice and the lagoon islands convey the mood of these places very well; unlike the selfie-ridden places like  San Marco you may still find a genuine tranquility. And the slightly desaturated Portra colors are very appropriate too. Good !!

Impressive ! The sheer volume and weight of the pillars are shown very good. And the foreground imho is ok, the reflections of the pillars in the water give more power. I agree;  a bit more of the construction above the pillars would be nice. Vertical pano?
