I shot The Millennium Bridge on the 28th of January at 11:44am. Shooting into low direct sunlight gave a soft look to the underside of the bridge as the light bounced off the water below and back up to the steel surfaces. I wanted the haze to soften the large steel surfaces and reduce the industrial feel of the underside of the bridge. I used a long lens to compress the length of the structure and give it an almost reptilian feel as it curves away in the distance. The curve enhanced by the use of the longer focal length. A crop was used as the lower section met the River Thames which would have been an unwanted distraction in this case, a tight crop ensured that the bridge filled the majority of the frame. The depth of field I used was purely to keep the bridge in focus but soften back the building behind which otherwise would have been too dominant.
