This photo is from Louisville’s Waterfront Park near the Kennedy bridge which carries I-65 across the Ohio River. The bridges on the left and right, the Clark Memorial Bridge and the Big Four railroad bridge were constructed in 1928. I find it amazing that they both were built in one year. In contrast today there is another bridge that will be built, starting later this year, alongside the Kennedy that will require almost three years to complete.
This image was created by cropping a single frame into the panorama format. I then processed it in NIK HDR Efex Pro and Aperture 3. I wanted to emphasize the perspective of the scene by positioning myself almost under the Kennedy and shooting the image with my 18-55mm lens set to 18mm at f9.

Louisville Bridges Panorama is a wonderful photograph. The composition is superb and the colors beautiful. I love the repeating forms. There a timeless sense to the image: wish I were there!
Thanks Ellen I especially appreciate your comments about the composition.
Hope to bring my street rod there soon for the show. Have a restored 54 Chevy 2 door with beefed up original engine. Runs like a modern car at freeway speeds.
You’ll love it. Be sure to get down to Waterfront Park and see the bridges for yourself.
