Sunset over AM Foster Covered Bridge by Matt Conti

April 2021 - Sunset over AM Foster Covered Bridge

About the Image(s)

With the pandemic travel restrictions last Autumn, I took a drive
around some local New England towns to capture the fall colors.
Northern Vermont is filled with covered bridges including this AM
Foster Covered Bridge in Cabot, Vermont. I arrived just as the sun was
setting and captured this scene.

In processing, I combined two images in a vertorama to keep the
sharpness front-to-back and then a separate exposure to blend in the
sky using Photoshop to capture the dynamic range of the sunset.

Camera: Sony a73
Lens: Tamron 17-28 f2.8
Focal Length: 28mm
Exposure: Various
ISO: 100

Simply stunning image Matt. You've maintained the colours beautifully and caught the setting sun at the perfect moment. The construction of this image is great, even when I scroll it up on my screen to make it a pano by loosing the bottom third, or even a bit more, it does not loose any of its strength.   Posted: 04/15/2021 07:39:30

Very pleasant colors, excellent composition, nothing to add. Or maybe nitpicking, the surface of the water could be more blueish, turbulent?   Posted: 04/15/2021 10:50:34

Just a beautiful image. Perfect autumn sunset. I do think I might remove some of the foreground .....but that is my would give you a beautiful leading line into the barn and sunset. The colors are spectacular!   Posted: 04/16/2021 13:16:10

Matt, Its picture perfect. Love the golden color from the sunset. As Ian said it would be great as a pano, but I like the way the foreground leads you in. Beautiful.
