Newport Bay Bridge

Taken from a new vantage point for me, on the fishing pier near the center of the channel just to the east of the bridge. A whole bunch of people out here fishing and crabbing, then there is me with my tripod and camera. :-) I saw earlier in the week the moon following the sun down and estimated that I could get this shot the next day. Didn't see the sun for the next 3 days, but the fog gave way for this photo. The moon is not following as closely now though, so no sun & moon in the same shot. A moon shot will follow soon however. We froze for a half hour waiting for the moon..... :-)

This is an HDR image with a good amount of saturation and vibrancy. The seagull, however, is natural. :-)

Wow, perfect composition! Very pretty. I was just reading about using hdr for sunsets and, silly me, had never thought of that before.

Superb shot. Sunrise and sunsets are always a winner if you have an interesting object in it.
