shot thru the windshield at 55 mph...


Teresa H. Hunt August 17, 2009

Oh, I hate being the first one to comment on an image. :)
Great perspective shot, and I really like the effect on the photo. For a shot taken at 55 mph it's very sharp. My only critique is, I wish we could see a little more at the end of the bridge. :) #1169391

I always wait until Teresa comments before I say anything ;) Muahahahah ;)

I really like the effect on this shot. I'm wondering how many bugs you had to photoshop off the windshield from the 55mph drive ;) #7857657

Too funny Bobby!

This is a cool image Vicki! Amazed at the clarity you were able to capture in this. Love the effect you used, it really brings out character in the bridge and the road. #7858493

Bobby, actually there were no bugs except a big smear on the right side...I was suprised!! the detail is actually amazing...I just held the camera up and started came out so well i'm thinking instaed of analyzing my shots I should just click...LOL...wish it was that easy...I just got lucky I's the original #7859568

Very nice Vicki. I got in trouble the other day for attempting something similar the other day. #7860135

I really like this kind of shot Vicki and the way you captured it makes it even better. Your chosen treatment worked really well. Like it a lot. #7860531

Anthony L. Mancuso August 18, 2009

I like it too Vicki...I hope you were in the passenger seat though....what treatments did you apply to this? #7862316

Vicki Snow August 18, 2009

yes I was in the passenger seat Tony LOL,,besides I could never risk driving and taking pictures...what if I would have crashed into the river and got my camera wet...yikes!! I used the topaz psycodellic (sp?)I usually don't like the topaz psyco..especially how it makes the sky look...but I did figure out you can rope off only what you want to apply the effect to...go figue!! there's another one of the bridge without the effect on the sky in my gallery #7862830

You have a VERY clean windshield. Great idea and great shot. #7864678

Michael Kelly level-deluxe August 18, 2009

Great shot Vicki! Very impressive through a windshield and the perspective and structure make for an interesting shot. Glad you caught it at a time with no traffic too as another vehicle would have spoiled it. #7864715

First Bobby you staying true to the BRAT name, and Michael I was thinking just the opposite of you I was wishing a car was coming toward them, which would have been cool, glad to have you back. Vicki this is a great picture and really like the topaz treatment to it. Jeff just what kind of trouble did you get in? #7864822
