Over the underpass

Filed under: Robert Hoehne — rhoehne @ 10:18

finally back.



  1. Some wonderful lines, curves, texture and contrasts. All very anticpationary. The height of capture adds plenty of depth and given the relative darkness of the roads it does seem surprising light and airy.

  2. I wonder how this will appear to archaeologists in the distant future. I suppose that they will have the photos to tell them how it was all put together, although the absence of vehicles would make them have to guess what it was used for!!

    The curved diagonal from corner to corner is a classic and very effective. Then the engineers’ construction kicks in with more curves and the the markings to highlight it all, like make-up. I’m quite intrigued as to why you tinted this: although, it looks fine, my brain keeps wanting to flick to b/w. The whole is very pleasing visually, while the tint overlays something that makes one ask questions.

    Lastly, how did you get up there?

    • I enjoy the tint, not much more to it than that, very subtle on my monitor (starting to question my calibration again).
      The photo is taken from a foot overpass which is over two roads. And to top it off above and just behind me is a monorail light rail system. It is quite a stack.

  3. If you are near the monorail then I’ve probably stood there with a camera…wouldn’t have taken this at the time, but might easily now. Which is interesting (to me).

    In a word: graceful.

  4. I like everything about this — including the tint. That you made such a graceful (thank you, Colin) design from such subject matter is truly impressive.

  5. I liked this the first time I saw it – graceful is a good description and a nice counterpoint to the subject matter. The lower road has a bit of ‘whoosh’ about it that lifts the picture giving dynamism as well as a graceful structure. The tint is slightly heavy on my monitor, but sufficient to distract at all.

  6. thank you everyone. The lower road does have whoosh, it feels that way when driving it as well. I must get a shot of that, it climbs towards a building and passes by windows several floors up on your way to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
    Whoosh is a great word for both these roads when driving Mike, I’ve done both at whoosh speeds. The upper road leads into the city, the lower out over the bridge.

  7. I love the Vee coming out of the bottom left corner, it is a strong compositional element.

  8. As ever, I like it for the mix of natural and geometric. It is interesting how just a few details give a sense of scale here.
