Pedestrian Bridge Ramp and Topaz Labs


Pedestrian Bridge Ramp, originally uploaded by EvanGearing.
This is the ramp leading up to or down from (depending on which way you are going) the Pedestrian Bridge by Lamar Blvd in Austin, TX. It's part of the famous "Hike and Bike Trail" that winds its way around Lady Bird Lake.

It's funny how I got this shot. I was able to shoot this from the end of the Pedestrian Bridge that overlooks the ramp and of course there's a railing on that part of the bridge just like you see on the ramp. However, to get the shot, my tripod wasn't tall enough to get the camera over the railing without getting some of the railing in the shot. So, I had to kind of lean the tripod over on two legs and lean it up against the railing so it was peering thru the slats that are further apart, again just like in the picture. It wasn't the most stable, but it worked and wa-la!

On another note, I received an email from Topaz Labs stating that they have a new version of Remask out. I'd like to try it sometime as masking is something I'm not great at and I think that program would help a great deal. I'm also interested in their Photoshop Bundle. Remask is included in it plus a whole bunch of other plugins for Photoshop that might give Nik software a run for their money. Especially since it's cheaper! We'll see.
