Crossing the Bridge

Crossing the Bridge, originally uploaded by M. Rosenberg.

Train crossing the Rockville Bridge just north of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The Rockville Bridge is the longest stone-arch bridge in the world (although you can't really tell from this angle).

I grew up a few miles away, but never photographed it until this Memorial Day weekend. I saw the train car with all the graffiti coming up from the right, so I tried to get a shot where it was right above the arch. As I was watching it pass, I thought it would make a cool selective color shot.

This picture is actually three blended together. The bridge and water below it is an HDR image combined from three exposures. The clouds are from an under-exposed image, which gives them their depth. Finally, the train car is a third image in which I left the color. This is the same bridge in the shot I posted on May 29th if you couldn't tell.
