Everyone has done some excellent things with this bridge it's had to spotlight just one. Love looking at them all.

Just a minor point here but isn't that the Tower Bridge not the London bridge? Leave it to me to be a real stick in the mud huh?

Tower Bridge?

DJ, I believe you're correct. The London Bridge was brought over to Arizona in 1970-71, and doesn't appear to have the towers (I haven't been up to see it yet -- it's only been 31 years...). The Tower Bridge, however, is much more photogenic, I think.

The only relevancy is that those lovely images folks created using fog or rain are realistic as well as beautiful. (Won't be finding as much fog or rain around the London Bridge.)

DJ, CJ: Gosh. You're right.

I guess when you've got a 6-year-old singing "London Bridges Falling Down" 500 times a day, I guess any ol' bridge you look at becomes LB. The "real" London Bridge was, in fact, moved to Arizona quite a number of years ago.

Well, there you go. Not only do you learn great digital imaging tips and techniques at RP, sometimes you get a badly needed dose of geography and famous architecture of the world!

Super job on "Moon Bridge" -- both versions. Very inspired.

PHYLLIS:
The fog effect is great; nice job on adding the lights along the bridge deck, too.

DAVID:
Glad you had time to jump into this one. Looks like you had a lot of fun. Look forward to seeing more of your "arty creations" in the future.

Did you get the academic verion of PS yet?

OK... Back to studying for my next world architecture test!

Sorry Danny. Couldn't let that one sneak by. What would our British members say? It's an honest mistake though cause that song makes it the most famous bridge in England to all of us who've grown up singing it.

thanks danny! Re photoshop: I'm still saving up for it, waiting for my next paycheck to come, and I ended up not being able to afford car insurance for now ($300 a month was the lowest quote i could get, and thats just for liability - collision coverage costs more.. ouch ) so I'm selling my car and once I do that then I'll be able to get it.

On the London Bridge/Tower Bridge point... just to add that we do still have a London Bridge in London in addition to all of the other bridges (presume that after we'd sold the old one to the US we used the cash to build a new one that was less picturesque but worked better and hence did not have to be built up with iron & steel, silver & gold, etc. etc.)

But making the current London Bridge look photogenic would be a real challenge!

One of great things about photo art is that a major error early on can be skillfully worked around by some creative applications of filters. I did an extremly bad job of selecting the sky, put in the one you see, converted to greyscale, duped,blurred, darken only on top layer (i love that effect, use it more often than any other), and then added the lightning. Cant really remember exactly how i did that. Tried a bunch of diffrent things before i got it to work. I think i used a similar technique as the one to make star wars lighsabers.

OOOoooo...
Darkstar, that is almost scary... great Halloween pic!

You know you can make lightning with the render-->clouds filter too. Just have to adjust the blending. I have never tried it, but have seen pics of it in a PS book I have.
