Day 82 ~ Bridges in the Sky
WHAT: Project 365 (2009), Random | WHEN: March 27, 2009
|Got my Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens back today. This is a workhorse lens for me because of it's versatility. It's always with me, and even though it's not quite as sharp as a couple of my prime (fixed focal length) lenses, it's pretty close... and you can use it about anywhere.
I went to a going-away party for a friend who took a new job in DC tonight, and on the way home I made a little pit stop and went underneath these two overpasses to catch this shot with the 24-70. For those of you in Dallas, this is the eastbound and westbound George Bush Turnpike (a.k.a. 190) overpasses as they cross over Central Expressway (a.k.a. 75) in Plano.
This image was shot at ISO 3200 at 1/80th of a second at f/2.8. The light in this image was provided by the street lamps lining the overpasses, and it was a little foggy out which helped provide a nice glow above the roads. I added a little TRA2 "Grandma's Tap Shoes" action love (lowered the opacity) and overlaid one of the textures in my soon-to-be-released Firenze texture set (textures from Italy) using a hard light blend mode and lowering the opacity to about 25%.
