"UNDER THE OVERPASS"
Things are not quite what they seem in this surreal photograph of an underpass found near the Columbia River just out of Hood River. In this study of an imposing concrete bulwark, negative and positive values are inverted, rendering the concrete forms with surprising results. The manipulation of tonal values presents a sunlit feeling rippling withinside the shadowy areas whilst the bolts of light striking diagonally across the face of the wall possess an expanded range of tonality and luminosity. I used a 15mm Nikkor ultrawide lens to take in the entire structure. This is an image to be studied and to enjoy... both in the abstract and concrete.
