'' Bridge Run '' Photo was taken with a Nikon D 700, Composer pro, plastic optic, and super wide lens. No I did not have a permit to shut down the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead I shot this image at the Hershey Auto Museum in Pa. I love the reflections in the hood of the corvette so I got close with the super wide to make it my main subject. The plastic optic gave me the dreamy blur I needed to give depth to the image. The background was a painted mural. I finished the image in Nik software's Color Effects 4, using the solarization filter to give more drama and recreate their artwork and make it mine. Hope you enjoy this photo and feel free to let me know what you think.

I agree with BFC above. This is very nicely done work and a favorite.

Amazing, Gdebron! (Thank you, too for sharing what you did in post-production: The Nik color software looks like a good investment. Will have to check it out).
