New Plymouth boasts a beautiful coastal walkway.
They are currently extending this walkway another 6K down the coast. First they needed to traverse the Waiwhakaiho River.
This beautiful sculptured bridge is being erected at the moment. Bit of a building site and lots of keep out signs but that didn’t stop me getting over and shooting towards sunset.
Beautiful shapes and massive arches that depict the waves breaking on the shore as this is prime surfing location.
Image shot with Sony a350 and Sony DT16-105 lens
To over expose the bridge, sky and surroundings and create the high key effect – this was shot on tripod with 2.5 sec exposure, F7.1 iso200 at 40mm.
work then done using photoshop to create the exact effect I was after, taking out a few shadows and artifacts from the image to keep it clean.
This is exactly how I wanted the image to turn out.
