Bridge of Sighs

Here’s a photo I recently took in Spokane. It’s a bridge crossing the Spokane river, with my buddy standing in as a model. And he was super. Yay for supermodels!

So I set the tripod up, facing down the bridge for the perspective shot. I have a bunch of Raleigh facing me, but they didn’t work out so well for what I was looking for. I then realized that he had on a white shirt under his jacket, and that I could blow it out with proper exposure and post-processing.

To get the color, I merely tweaked the color balance way off the charts toward that violet color, then desaturated it a bit.

What do you think?
