Under the Bridge (Photocentric)

Sometimes I share a photo I had really great hopes for when I take the shot but for one reason or another does not completely live up to what I had envisioned. Today's shot is just such a picture. I had seen a lot of bridge shots and, for better or for worse, had those in mind when I set up for these shots. I couldn't wait to get home and process them... then the disappointment set in. I like the bridge look, but the sky is too blue. Don't get me wrong, it was a clear day, but it wasn't that blue. I need to start working with layers so I can paint in/out things like that. So this is not a finished shot, more of a work in progress. Hopefully I'll be able to finish it and post it.

This shot also is a bit of a theme for me this week on what I need to do in certain areas of my life; manage expectations. I set myself up for disappointment too easily, but if I were to be more realistic in what I expect I'd be maybe less disappointed.
