End of an era.


Im glad I got to drive over the dam a few years ago. I will never have the chance again.

Too bad I'll never get to see the inside like my parents did.

Polarizing filters really don't do much at night. They work best at reducing reflected/refracted light.

Most cameras are 24 bit color, regardless of pixels. 8 bit per color channel. Really not that great when compared to film, which is the equivalent of around 256 bit.

What you are seeing is increased color saturation because of the longer exposure. If you look at the high and mid tones, they are mostly washed out, showing that the color depth really isn't that great.

Seriously? I've accidentally left a circ polarizer on at night and the pictures come out like that. Is that because the body is changing auto settings to compensate?

If you had it set on auto, who knows. You can lose around 1/3 to 1/2 stop of light with a polarizing filter, which would be compensated for by the camera w/ a longer shutter speed or smaller fstop.

Take your camera off auto and start shooting manual. You will learn alot more that way.

Seems that the suspension cables were temp - thats a bummer, I thought it was going to be an interesting bridge, not just an arch.
