Another Louisville Sunset

Sunset on the Ohio River at Louisville, KY

Here’s another image taken at sunset from the Clark memorial Bridge. I can’t stop going downtown and shooting from the bridge. This particular evening the sun was just dropping below the horizon and the colors were amazing. I especially like the way the sunset is reflected in the Yum Center windows.

The composition relies on the balance of the building and roadway with the texture of the clouds. There is also a complimentary color harmony going on with the blues of the sky and the oranges in the sunset.

I processed this image using NIK HDR Efex Pro using the “Realistic Strong” preset and Aperture 3 for final sharpening.

  1. This is a masterpiece. The 1/3 – 2/3 ratio of building vs. bridge makes it quite dynamic, and of course the reflection in the building — wow! Thanks for sharing how you processed the image. I agree with you about having certain places one can’t help returning to again and again. I have a couple of those, a bit further north than you are. 🙂
