According to the phobia list Gephyrophobia is afraid to cross bridges. You made a nice photo but I don't see a bridge here. If it is there, then it is not prominent enough to show any fear.

I like the feeling of this shot, but I wish the bridge was more prominent.

I had to look up Gephyrophobia to figure out what the fear was, and then I noticed the bridge which is small, short, and might not be a bridge at all -- you can't really tell. The challenge description states "Try to make the viewer feel the emotion of the fear". This doesn't do it. The pastoral landscape and tinting doesn't help either.

On behalf of all of us lazy voters: your presentation would have been more viewer-friendly if your title included a brief definition of the phobia in addition to the technical word for it.

A creepier bridge would have gotten this over more effectively. Something long, covered and half falling down, maybe.

Cool phobiia and a great photograph. This really is superb composition, light and colour. I see the bridge, I don't see the fear of crossing it.

Nice bridge. An okay attempt to darken the mood. Personally I don't think you're managing to convey the fear.
