Ephemera by ottoberkeley

I’ve always been drawn to Richmond Bridge’s stunning architecture, from the texture of its Portland stone to the romanticism of its Victorian gas-lit lampposts, but also to the ethereal spectacle when its unique shape and structure is reflected in the Thames.

I was fortunate enough to be shooting the bridge on a morning when the wind speed had dropped to 1mph, which helped me get a clear reflection in the water. Despite the fact that the boats beneath the bridge were moored quite loosely and slowly swaying, I also captured a brighter exposure of the boats, and then isolated them in Photoshop with the pen tool so that I could selectively mask in the brighter exposure and add saturation and contrast. I then just spent some time dodging and burning the bridge to recover some of the shadows and to emphasise the glow from the lamplight cast along the bridge’s stonework.

Quiet is Power by WenMinTseng

Quiet is Power
Stari Grad is a town on the northern side of the island of Hvar in Dalmatia, Croatia.
One of the oldest towns in Europe, its position at the end of a long, protected bay and next to prime agricultural land, has long made it attractive for human settlement. Stari Grad is also a municipality within the Split-Dalmatia County.

Concerto by ottoberkeley

This image of the Millennium Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral was captured as blue hour turned to golden hour, and was shot on one of the longest days of the year.

The occasional early-morning jogger, night-shift worker and fellow photographer made their way along the south bank of the river as the sun came up, with foreboding clouds passing over the cathedral but parting exactly where the sun appeared on the horizon, casting a warm glow across the bridge and bringing out the subtle texture in the sky.

Odyssey by ottoberkeley

This is the staircase leading from the DLR platform at Bank Underground Station in London.

The image was captured early in the morning, shortly before the city’s busy morning commute began, and edited by blending multiple exposures using luminosity masks.
