Bosphorus Bridge (34)
Strange coincidence. A little souvenir shot taken on March 2nd, 1979! To continue on the theme of my voyage on board the MV Caron P.E. , after our visit in Ancona we headed to Constanta , Romania to load a cargo of bagged cement for Lagos, Nigeria.
On our way to destination , we anchored from February 25th to 28th off the village of Karistos a/c NE'ly Gales in the Aegean Sea.
On March 2nd we passed the Dardanelles in early morning, to pass Istanbul and the Bosphorus Bridge by mid Day.
As the weather was foggy, or perhaps smoggy.... , the original photo is not that great. This image is from a scanned 3.5'' x 5'' 35mm print.
with Photoshop CS
1) Cloned some scratches and marks.
2) Used the Neon filter to see better the silhouette of the bridge,and emphasize the older look of the ship.
3) Cropped the bottom.
4) Filtered with Neat Image
5) Added frame and title with Photofiltre.
I am adding a color version as a WS. Let me know which PP you prefer.
