    The result of a few hours in Photoshop tonight playing with a number of different shots I took from my overpass series. I focused on trying to blend and remix them into something entirely new. At this point it's much more of a creation than a photograph.

    Some shots taken with a 28-135mm IS lens, and some taken with a Lensbaby 3G. This is actually the result of 7 separate photos with multiple parts per photo taken and remixed together in new ways. I'm coming to love grungy brushes for work like this - so much control and being able to keep various layers of grunge for an image and tweak and blend it into the final image is very rewarding.

    I find it really interesting that a photo shoot spanning a week and involving 4 separate treks to the overpass could culminate in a single image like this.

      First thing on my mind was that this looks like the cover of the OK Computer album. I like it.

      Beautiful photograph!! And I like the idea behind it. The way you depicted the idea is fantastic. Wonderful long exposure shot. I have a question though, how do you take long exposures during the day? like in this one? Wouldn't it be too bright?
