Capture What Counts Photography

Day 297 – Riverfront

Here are a couple more shots from the riverfront yesterday.

This is a shot of Cincinnati taken from the Purple People Bridge as we were walking over from Newport, KY.  Of course my favorite building…the Queen Building can be seen from almost anywhere in the city.  The biggest thing that caught my eye when I took this was the flags all blowing in the same direction.  You can also see the flood wall (also known as the serpentine wall.)  Just a few short weeks ago, the serpentine wall was completely under water.

This photo shows a different view of the serpentine wall, as well as Great American Ballpark…home of the Cincinnati Reds…in the middle.  The Taylor-Southgate Bridge is on the far left of photo.  Both photos are SOOC.

  3. Wow, I like the second one most because of the perspective. That was the possibly the best angle to shoot the stairs. As the first comment says already…the flags are amazing…have u ordered them to be like that for you..?
    Don’t forget the sky…I like the gently viewable clouds and the airplane line….

    There are some great lines in these pictures. The first one with the flags and the lighter parts of the serpentine wall, as well as the height differences in the builds. Then in the second shot, the curved lines of the wall vs the flags and then the bridge. These are pictures they would use in art classes as examples. :O) Nice work lady!!

  5. I love them both…the first for the wonderful shape of the buildings and the city scape itself and the second for the unique perspective and the wonderful leading lines! You go girl! 🙂

  7. I agree, I like the second one better, I agree with the lines, it’s a different perspective than straighter flatter shot. Good job.

  8. Lovely photos, I wonder if your first one would benefit from being cropped top and bottom to give it more of a panoramic feel? Would look wonderful in black and white as well.
