These image are some closeups and abstracts that I shot last month while I was down shooting the Ohio River Bridges Project. Sometimes when I’m shooting construction I need to change my perspective by looking for abstract or closeup subjects. When I saw the concrete saws lying on a trailer I was intrigued by the pattern of the diamond cutting edges and the notches in the blades. The other image is from the tire tracks of a piece of rubber tired heavy equipment in sand.

I shot them in three frame bracket sets of +2, 0 and -2 EV exposures for later HDR processing. I processed the HDR images in NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 and Aperture 3. After completing the color versions I decided to use NIK Silver Efex to convert a couple of them to Black and White.
