Skybridge
« on: April 05, 2014, 03:37:26 PM »
I found this circular skybridge so interesting architecturally, and by no mean these shots are architecturely accurate. Basically, I was simply playing around with my Rokinon 14mm 2.8 on my 5D Mark III. For comparison purpose, one of these shots was taken with a Canon 24-70 2.8L II, which you should be able to figure it out pretty quickly.

By the way, this circular skybridge is in downtown Houston which connects Chevron Towers with a packing garage. This was formerly the headquarter of Enron. Comments/suggestions are welcomed and appreciated. And if you've shot something similar, please add them on. Thanks.

nice pictures.  I"m guessing you had a 10 stopper filter on there to get the streaking lights during daylight hours?  For the 3rd one down, I think the 17 tilt shift would be a nice lens to have for that shot as the building looks like it is about to fall over due to the distortion in the lens. 

The Rokinon 14 looks very sharp.

Thanks! The sun was about to set but still a little bright. It was a 4 sec, ISO 100, f22 shot. No filter was used. I haven't got a chance to play with tilt shift lenses, but I do agree, these shots would look better architecturally with tilt shift lenses.

I have heard that shots captured from the inside of this skybridge outwards look very interesting too! I'm looking forward to do so. Has anyone in this forum tried that? Thanks.

Your fourth one down is excellent. The series (from washed out sky to deep blue sky) would make a great tutorial on shooting at the magic hour.

When I visited years ago, I only got this shot with a washed out sky, which kind of ruins it. I should have waited for magic hour. Taken on slide film with my main camera for many years, Canon Elan2e.

A matter of fact, I really like your contrasty and silvery shot. Thanks for sharing with us.
