Hey, a Taiwan photographer eh? I have actually been there :) It only looks like a "natural park" when in a fog (otherwise, you'll see buildings everywhere).

This is absolutely stunning photo. I predicted this for a blue ribbon. It has such a quality feel to it. Big congrats!

Your photo actually reminds me of a Jurrasic Park II. movie, where the characters are in a giant pre-historic bird cage on a misty rope bridge, and are chased by this huge bird-beast through the mist.

I love this sort of shot - it works well, but not sure the tree adds anything but thats out of your control - well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2005 12:02:49 PM
Really moody andf mystic. I like the guiding lines and how the bridge disappears in the mist. 10.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2005 10:45:37 AM
Great mood, enhanced by choice of B&W and tone control. Strong composition.

Nice picture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2005 12:06:17 PM
This one is my favorite in this challenge (and I'm not the biggest b+w fan around). I love the composition, the way the bridge disappears into the mist and leaves me wondering what's on the other side. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2005 09:22:00 PM
nicely framed and I love how the bridge disappears into the fog.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2005 06:39:23 PM
Great composition, it is what makes the photo work. Also like the gradation into the mist. Good B&W. The tree gives some reference to scale.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2005 05:12:37 PM
Probably the creepiest picture in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2005 04:30:25 PM

Beautiful. The mist is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2005 01:54:46 PM
great dramatics
splendid composition though the bushy tree in the foreground is not needed in the lovely emptyness
u prob had no choice i guess
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2005 07:46:56 AM
Very nice! Good composition!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2005 07:10:29 AM
I feel like I've seen this before. Not this shot, or even this bridge, but this idea. Anyway, it's a visually striking image, very well composed/cropped for maximum impact. 8

Fabulous picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 03:20:51 AM
Great capture! This bridge looks more than a little scary to me... and I love it. Good job working with the fog - the brightness and contrast are perfect to my eyes, and the focus is right on.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 01:45:52 AM
