Matthias the warm of the colors in your photo are amazing. I love the sharpness of the reflections on the water. I also like how the trees on the banks frame the bridge. Truly an outstanding photo. I do feel that with all the details in the landscape scene to look at in the photo the viewer's eyes gets lost not know where to go. I tried cropping the left side of the photo (see attachment) and I feel it provides greater direction to the viewer and leads their eyes to the bridge. However, as I stated before I also like the photo as currently configured.   Posted: 10/15/2020 15:37:15

Hi Matthias. I love this image and can only imagine what it must look like in full autumn when the leaves have changed! I like that you put the horizon line on the mid-point of the photo so we can appreciate the reflections. I also like that you didn't place the arch dead-center in the image. I think the brightness of stone and the reflections in the water leads the eye to it wonderfully well. My only comment is that, at first, it seemed almost too sharp with an almost-HDR look that is really bold; although I can tell from the original image that you didn't edit it to be that way! I'd be interested to try de-saturating the image a little or maybe reducing the sharpening a bit to smooth out some of the sharp dark to light transitions. This also might make an interesting B&W image with all of the great texture and detail in the leaves, rocks and trees.   Posted: 10/15/2020 16:43:58

Hi Matthias, Nice photo.. I adjusted the the crop .. The reflection of the trees (2 with out leaves) are a bit distracting.. I do love the reflection of the bridge. I also open up the shadows. Let me know your thoughts.   Posted: 10/19/2020 13:35:55
