I captured the feeling that I wanted to in this pic. The idea was to demonstrate the strength of the little boat through capturing the massive wake it was leaving behind. I think that the steal structure of the bridge overhead that the tugboat had just gone through enhances what a tugboat represents, an industrial vehicle that hauls large materials.
The challenge in taking this photograph was finding a spot in the window to shoot the image without having some sort of reflection or glare in the finished pic.
The image below gives you an idea of how far away I zoomed in on the tugboat from in order to capture the photograph of it passing underneath the bridge. I’m guessing that I was about a half mile away from the bridge.
