This old beat-up railroad bridge with its low vertical clearance is well known around town for “catching” over-height trucks. Here’s a night shot of the bridge with a B&W treatment, which brings out the damage from all the hits on the fascia beam. Enjoy!

I like it, nice conversion. Now how sad is it that I immediately checked your location because I thought any bridge looking that rough had to be in my state!

Thanks! I've seen a couple trucks stuck under this bridge with the top of their trailer peeled off like a tin can. But, this bridge takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

Thanks! I did the conversion in DDP. It does a nice and quick job of B&W conversions.

Yea, the roads and bridges in our state are pretty poor. But, hey, that keeps me in bussness, I'm a bridge engineer :lol:

I'm digging the conversion (great tonal range) but I'd play with cropping the right side in more and lose the tree branches in the upper right. Maybe use the point at which the railing hits the bottom of the frame.

I hope that job doesn't require spelling. :confused: ;)

Thanks, and I agree with you, the branches are distracting. I tried a few different crops, but I couldn't get one that I liked. They all take out too much of the bridge for my liking.

Nah, I have QA guys to take care of that ;)

Thanks, guys.

It is a pretty sharp shot. Not bad for the old 5-dinosaur ;)
