Port Mann Bridge Progress; Compare 2 Photo Techniques

The traffic coming west along Highway 1 will enter Vancouver via the new Port Mann bridge under construction and to be completed sometime in 2013. Meanwhile Metro Vancouver residents have been treated to seemingly never ending construction of connections, road widening and new ramps all required for the new bridge. The impact of even more cars and trucks entering the Vancouver area is much debated and soon to be experienced.

Here are a couple of photos taken today of the bridge construction. You'll see that one uses a long exposure technique (10X ND filter) to create glass-like water. The other image is made from three exposures combined and processed in Lightroom and Photomatix.
