No idea what the name of this bridge is or any of them. All I know is I was in Portland, Oregon standing on a floating dock and taking images.
I was in Portland last year for for work which I took this image. There wasn’t very good light and I was shooting at the ass crack of dawn which is not my normal time. I am the landscape photographer that will do evening and night shots until dawn but getting up at dawn isn’t my thing. I wasn’t jetlagged, instead I had three 8% alcohol beer which I didn’t know was 8% alcohol so I was in my room asleep at like 8 PM local time. Speaking of the beer, it was very good but the next night when I talked to the bartender and I said I was asleep early is when I found out it was 8%. Ooops.
This image was all about the sky. With little color it was perfect for a monochrome conversion. So I did my normal edits and took it into Tonality. I picked a preset and then just started to play with sliders until happy. I then took it into Photoshop and did some local work. I had too much noise in the sky so I created a layer mask and then removed that via Camera Raw filter in the areas. I then created another mask to bring up the brightness in certain areas with the Camera Raw filter. Bit of dodging and burning and called it done.
