Ben Franklin Bridge – Philadelphia, PA


One of my first HDR shots revisited with my current processing workflow.  I actually climbed up on the bridge structure to get this shot and was quickly escorted off the bridge by the Delaware River Port Authority.

The Benjamin Franklin Bridge (also known as the Ben Franklin Bridge), originally named the Delaware River Bridge, is a suspension bridge across the Delaware River connecting Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Camden, New Jersey. Named for American statesman Benjamin Franklin, the bridge is owned and operated by the Delaware River Port Authority. At its completion on July 1, 1926, its 533-metre span made it the world’s longest suspension bridge span, a distinction it would hold until the opening of the Ambassador Bridge in 1929.

  3. Second what Hazel said. I really like the detail of the rivets and the cables on the right side, it really gives you a sense of all of the individual components that comprise the entire structure.
