About the Image(s)

This is another picture I took of a covered bridge in New Hampshire this summer. This one is inside a park, so one has to hike out to it to photograph it. I didn't carry a tripod on the long hike, but there was a wooden rail fence and I rested the camera on that so I could take several versions of the picture for later HDR combining.
Tech specs: Canon EOS 5D Mark III, 35mm, 1/60 sec, f/7.1 ISO 400, Aperture priority, spot metering.

Hi Alison
When I looked at your original image I thought you were going to be in trouble with the highlights but I think you have done a great job with the edit.
To me this image is about the bridge & the rocky stream. I like the composition, the placement of the main subject and how you have framed it with the foliage.
I do not think that the white stones bottom right add anything to the image & would either clone them out or crop a bit tighter. I also feel that a slight darken of the bottom right corner & right hand edge would highlight and draw one's attention to the bridge & stream better.
Overall I like this image & what I am suggesting are minor tweaks.

Thank you so much for the feedback, Moira. I agree cropping out the white stones at the bottom would make it better, don't know why I didn't see that. Once they're cropped out, thought, it seems to me that I need to crop a bit of the right side of the image as well.   Posted: 10/09/2019 06:36:10

Alison, I am drawn into this image, a sunshiny day, a cascading stream, and a quiet pool of day that one can sit and enjoy for hours at a time. Nice work! Your post processing and perhaps HDR processing really worked.

I don't have any suggestions.   Posted: 10/12/2019 15:40:51
