    I was so pleased to see "not just another bridge shot" when I opened this post! Very nicely done!

    I'm diggin it.

    Its gotta be one of the most photographed bridges in the world next to the Golden Gate, so how do you photograph it without making it look like just another shot? I think you found a way, nice job phatning

    Nice eye to see that shot.

    Did you have special access to get that shot, or could anyone shoot from that spot?

    Thank you guys! I wanted to emphasize the important role that steel cables play in Brooklyn Bridge history.

    It's not a special access spot, everyone can stand there. Just watch out for bicycle traffic. The riders get REALLY mad if you are on their side. :eek:

    Interesting shot. Did you manually focus like that or did you do something in post processing for that effect?

    I used aperture priority mode and focused on the nearest part of the cable. That's it.

    Naa special access not needed, this is a shot from the walk way. It s public space that everyone uses. If you seen the GEICO commercials with the gecko walking on a painted line of a walkway of the bridge, that is where you can see this. I love perspectives like this. It's usually an assignment for beginner photography classes. I did almost this exact same shot shot with my Minolta on B&W film back when I was in High school. But I remember I had more of the bridge in frame with some pleasant distortion from my 17mm lens. I should try to find that negative and scan it. The print I have is not the best qualityto scan.
