Superstructure

Superstructure - Osaka, Japan

Superstructure – Osaka, Japan

I rather like this unusual perspective of this metal bridge in Japan, it turned out better than I expected. This image would be easy to shoot if I were walking on the bridge, which of course, I wasn’t. I shot it from inside the train, up front, through two layers of glass, and by carefully excluding the window frames.

It’s also another good example of telephoto compression, which I featured a couple of days ago. I shot that train station photo at a 270mm equivalent. Today’s is at a more modest 150mm equivalent.

You can see that the superstructure of the bridge is compressed together and the empty spaces between the steel girders are almost nonexistent. I made the photo with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II with the 14-150mm zoom lens.
