About the Image(s)

Made this image a few years ago, while walking in the wood. I came across the little bridge going over a stream. I liked the way the lights were shining through the trees.
Shot with my Nikon d5100, with the kit lens, f/10, 1/100 sec, ISO 800, at 18mm.

Looks a nice wood to be walking in Nelson and I can image at a different time of the year there would be plenty to photograph in IR. There is a nice interplay of shadows on the bridge pointing towards the wood almost showing you the way to go!! Problem with shadows is, it can sometimes make for harsh lighting, which is this case I feel this image suffers from. Perhaps pulling back on the Black slider would help improve it.   Posted: 10/10/2020 05:21:42

I too like the shadows on the bridge but overall find the lighting a little harsh so I might try to reduce the contrast. It is rather a busy image. Cropping some off the top to make the image square would focus attention on the bridge and in my view would simplify it while still providing enough information to the viewer to make it clear that the location was in a wood.   Posted: 10/12/2020 11:41:27

As I view this image I wonder where the viewer's eye is meant to come to rest. Is it at the bridge deck, which is very interesting, or on the space in the back that the bridge is leading to? Wherever you have meant to draw the eye, I thinkit should be the brightest part of the image. For me there is too much of the trees at the top which I do not find very interesting. I would suggest cropping from the top to just above the curved branch leading in from the right. Also I think opening up the very dark shadows a bit would add to the drama in the scene.   Posted: 10/17/2020 09:29:49

Looks like a great place to take a walk. The light on the bridge is great but when we come off the bridge, I not sure if I should look at the light on the tree top or the light that is off in the distance. Do agree with other about opening your shadows a bit. This is a perfect setting for Halloween so thanks for sharing. I don't see seems like this in FL.   Posted: 10/17/2020 11:06:36

It is a nice scene but for me my eye follows the path across the bridge and into the woods and out. There needs to be an arresting object that stops the eye from going out of the scene.   Posted: 10/18/2020 14:59:27
