Covered bridge not too far from my home. After shooting the horses in moonlight, this looked pretty inviting. A car passed by at this moment and its headlights illuminated the tree a little which, I think, really helped this shot. I tried using my own truck headlights, but it was too much.

Great lighting in this, lending the image an effectively eerie mood. Love the touch of grain and the long shadow of the trash can.

This image would have ribboned, imo. Gosh it tells so much. The bridge is closed, a nearby flag blows in the breeze, a light shines in the dark, rocks sparkle in the foreground...harsh and soft lighting thruout, plus soft and hard lines thruout. I LOVE this image!! Nice editing, too!!

Ooo, this is so cool! Spooky, eerie, desolate... love the grain and tones. I really like the effect of the light in the tree, like a star from van Gogh's Starry Night :-)

this is just brilliant roger .. a wonderful just about eerie image .. love the colouring .. :)
ps .. i found the wolf spider on our bathroom floor .. i took photographs of him there and put him in a glass overnight because i wanted to use him for the macro challenge & the one's on the bathroom floor didnt appeal to me ... i didnt get around to photographing him the next day so i let him go outside .. the day after that i saw a suspiciously similar looking spider on the floor in the hall .. i put a glass over him overnight & in the morning took photographs for the point of view challenge coz i'd got the dragonfly by then .. so that's the story of the wolf spider .. he was getting a bit anxious i think coz the last photographs i took of him i had to take thru a glass .. whenever i moved it away he made a dash for freedom ... after i finished with him i took him outside and let him go .. apparently they can give a very painful bite ..

Would have been way to stark without the grain. Nice job!

Hmmmm, a covered bridge you say. Looks like I may have to search that out when I'm home visiting the folks for Christmas. :)

It's especially cool that you took night shot of it. Don't see very many of those type of covered bridge photos. The light worked out well here.

Nice shot - looks very spooky. I think it's the lighting and the tones - and my imagination. :o)
