Bridge of Ropes


One of the few very dangerous bridges on the world, hanging 200m high above a wild river. Falling down only leads to sudden death. The wind made it banging from right to left and back to the right. Very scary... I'm joking, it was a bridge connecting two playgrounds for children. The very calm water of a lake was only 2m beneath. The whole construct was strong and sturdy, ready to handle all kind of calm and wild kids.


TECH-INFO: a single RAW-file. I enhanced contrasts, converted it mostly into black & white and re-colored it. The main goal is to enhance the structures that the ropes form.

lol - you had me there. really cool shot!
LightningPaul: smile Thanks for you comment.
I would have taken it more centered
LightningPaul: I understand it and it would be a great choice but I really wanted to have some asymmetry. Also it's easier than centering it smile
It's amazing how a good angle and a few well chosed words can give the wrong idea about something Paul, thanks for owning up later in your narrative.
LightningPaul: I'm glad you liked the little "story". I know that some extra sentences to an image can change the whole view.

It's nice to see such a close-up of this cool bridge. Very nicely done.
LightningPaul: Many thanks smile
Well, I think it looks a little too sturdy and well maintained to be "one of the few dangerous bridges in the world" smile. But I really like the picture! I like the asymmetry a lot, and you have such a gift for leading the eye through the picture!
