In this view of the Ohio River and the John F. Kennedy Bridge you can see, in the river, the first evidence of the foundations for the bridge towers that will eventually rise into the air and carry the Downtown Span of the Ohio River Bridges Project here in Louisville Kentucky. As the foundation work progresses it is becoming easier to see the path that the new bridge will take as it crosses the river and connects Kentucky and Indiana via Interstate 65. When the project is completed the new bridge will carry all northbound I-65 traffic while the existing Kennedy Bridge will become the southbound component of the I-65 river crossing.

This HDR image is composed of a three frame bracket set using +2, 0 and -2 EV exposures which were then merged in NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 and finished using Aperture 3 for the final contrast, color channel, sharpening and detail adjustments.
