One of the few covered bridges left standing in Pennsylvania. This one is found in Oley Township, about 15 minutes from where I grew up. Im sure there were no speed limits signs on this bridge when the only traffic it saw was horse and buggies :)

Critique Club Review

Color, exposure, and focus are all very well done. I had to read your comments to figure out which sign you meant. The only drawback I see to this photo, outside of the fact that a sign was not the object of interest, was that the bridge was vacant. This left a rather large dark cavern right in the middle of the frame. The opening at the other side helps some, but there is still a lot of dark relatively featureless space. Either a different time of day, where the light penetrates deeper into the interior, or a vehicle in the opening might have helped here.

Don't see many covered bridges anymore. This one is lovely. The color os so great and stands out lovely against the blue sky. The way you've been able to include the older buildings on the other side and the fencing was also nice, and also the lighting just inside the bridge where it shows the logging [walls]. Great job.

I have the inasane wish that there was a horse and buggy about to go over this bridge. Ah well, can't win 'em all I suppose.

Great focus, exposure and colours. The framing of the road and bridge also works really well.

Beautiful photo of a beautiful covered bridge. Not too sure how this fits in the "Road Sign" challenge. Speed limit sign? What's strange or unusual obout a speed limit sign? As a photo of the covered bridge it's a 10 with everything right on. As for a photo about road sign, I don't really believe it deserves more than a 7, and that because of the quality of the photo. Great quality.
