"Pedestrian Bridge on Boardman Lake"


Traverse City, US
          

This is the pedestrian bridge along one of the many recreational trails here in northern Michigan. Bike riders, hikers or anyone who just wants to use the trail can cross this bridge located on the north end of Boardman Lake in Traverse City. This is located next to an old railroad trestle that I was standing on the get this shot.

Attractive site and scene, yet tough to do it right.
The sky is very nice, the reflection in the water even more.
However, without a ladder it is likely very hard to separate the shore line from the top of the bridge to give it more depth.
Lighting up that bridge and the cyclist could do plenty to improve it.

Have a great time

Hi Ramon

Here's one option - Just using the magic wand to select the bridge and playing with levels. That is a tough one to do right though. I'm thinking it would be easier and maybe just as effective to lighten the landscape to provide some separation and thus more depth.

Appreciate the input and suggestions.

Peter

Ok I see what you've done with the cyclist and the background .. can you tell me how you accomplished this? I know what I can do with Nik software to select areas for touchup. Just wondering how you went about this.

I used curves in Photoshop to add some light and contrast to the whole image for pop.
Then with the dodge tool, I simply lightened up a bit the cyclist.

Thanks Ramon

What I've discovered here is that I've been depending on my monitor and not paying close attention to the histogram. When I went back and looked at it I could see the problem with the levels. Thanks for the input and suggestions. Lesson learned.
