Duck’s Nest made from scrap tie wire pieces on the Ohio River Bridges Project Tower Five.
High above the Ohio River you can see the scope of the work on the Downtown Span of the Ohio River Bridges Project in Louisville, KY.
Most of these images are of the pile drivers working at Preston and Jefferson Streets as they rebuild Spaghetti Junction in Louisville, KY. These guys drive seventy feet long H-beams into the earth to support the foundation for the retaining walls and bridge abutments of the roadway for the Ohio River Bridges Project.
Most of these images of pile drivers working are HDR images created using a three frame bracket set of +2, 0 and -2 EV exposures. They were merged in NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 and then finished using Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop CS5. The light was pretty flat the day I was shooting these photos. Using HDR techniques allowed me to capture the scenes and reveal the details and textures that might have otherwise escaped capture in a single exposure.
