Hawthorne Bridge

I love having lots of stuff to work on in my catalogue. It keeps me from getting bored with one specific area or thing. While I haven’t been to Portland, Oregon since May I still have stuff I shot and never edited it.

This is the Hawthorne Bridge in Portland, Oregon. I know this because I looked it up. Otherwise I would not have had a clue. This was right outside my hotel so it’s one of the first images I took when I was in Portland. It was shot around dawn and the sun never really rose because the weather was rainy most of the time and those times that it wasn’t I could not shoot.

Editing wise I went back to masking in bits here and there. I always do my initial edits in Lightroom which includes various gradients. Then it’s into Photoshop to add contrast and do local dodging and burning. After that I then started to add in filters┬ávia MacPhun’s Intensify CK. I really liked how it made the sky pop along with the river. Once I had that I then masked in the bits I wanted and called it done.
