This photo was made a B&W in P.S. using channel mixer and selecting monochrome, then adjust the sliders to taste.

Looks more like the infinity bridge.

A road you could loose yourself on.

Great shot. #124398

An excellant picture that would certainly have a good chance of being accepted in UK exhibitions.
I wondered if you croped a section of the sea off the bottom of the print, whether it would make the shot even more dramatic.

I used a cropped version of this image on my business card and it looks very nice but the current dimensions are perfect for my 24x36 prints on canvas.


Judy M. Sayers May 26, 2019

Fantastic shot Christopher!! #125950

Terri Sprinkle May 26, 2019

This is a beautiful shot! I think the B&W enhances the image, from the depth of the clouds to the drama of the bridge angle. Can't believe you caught this from a kayak - more props to you just for the steady hand! :) #125955

Michael McCook level-classic July 17, 2003

This is such a great image. You've done a fantastic job converting it to B&W. I don't think you could have picked a better angle. At first I thought it was a composite of two images...the way the bridge seems to sink into the water. Congratulations! #144566

Amber J. Housey July 22, 2003

Sorry to bother you again, but I want to tell you that I am very attracted to your photography style. Very nice work on all you have shared here. You deserve recognition as you did on this one. Again, I love the colors you find and capture. Thank you for sharing. #147986

Kathleen K. Parker level-deluxe July 26, 2003

I love the way this looks in b/w.
From your kayak, eh? You must be pretty sure of yourself in it to bring your camera along. I am glad you did! Magnificient shot.

Christopher Del Negro July 26, 2003

Thanks Kathleen,
I kayak once a week, and always bring a camera. You never know what you might capture.
No mishaps yet. #151243

Natasha Ursula Pyle May 20, 2006

When I saw this image in the florida gallery, I immediatly recognized it from your business card. Looked at your gallery too. Some nice photos.

Tell me. How do you protect your camera when kayaking? I would like very much to be able to do the same.
