Aging Gracefully

Completed in 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge is a suspension bridge that connects the island of Manhattan to Brooklyn. For twenty years it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. Nowadays this iconic piece of the New York skyline is a popular tourist destination. Due to this, getting some original photos free of the crowds can prove a challenge. Regardless, it is still one of my favorite parts of the city to visit/take visitors too. I like this photo because it shows the aging aspects of the bridge, and reminds me of its rich history. This HDR was created with Photomatix 4.0. I then took the image in to Topaz Adjust 4 to increase the details of the rust, and finally adjusted some of the color aspects with Adobe Lightroom.
