This image is one of many bridges along a 8 mile trail that runs through my city.
I have grown fond of the many photo opts along the way of this trail that includes the seasons change so does the trail...I have somewhat of an Idea for a photo journal of this trail in mind as the season change and watching the same places along the trail change in character...

Post shot edit info: Unsharpened Mask, in adjustment layers used, Channel Mixer with loaded presets to get the "Fall Colors" in the leaves. Selective Colors, to adjust the over all colors in the trees and bridge. Hue/Saturation adjustment, to balance our some green colors on the bridge after adjustment colors was used. Then Levels used. Also, cropped and resized.

I like this shot very much. Sometimes less is more. Good angle and viewpoint, nicely exposed, good use of colour in the trees.

Beautiful colors. This makes a beautiful landscape picture but the vanishing point isnt leading anywhere interesting.

Cool colors, really good DOF, no annoying people, very good. Many exambles of vanishing point in here, 7.

Nicely done. I love the colors you have captured. The over-exposure of the boards on the bridge is just perfect. Really gives you that fade-away feeling.

Looks like autumn there already?

I like how you moved to the side and didn't look straight down the path.

Interesting colors. I can't say I'm a fan of it, but it's definitely different, and that I like.

I like composition of this image. Really fantastic, and, they more I look, the more I do like the colors. It just doesn't look natural, although I'm not saying that it isn't. 8.

Something about this image really works for me. I'm a sucker for lonely, barren shots. I'd have liked to maybe see the colors of the leaves pop a bit more (adjust levels, increase sat?). How did you find such colorful foliage in Missouri this early in August?

I love the point of view and that you didn't take the picture from the center of the bridge and rather that you took it from the side. this picture diserves a blue ribbon. And (although you had nothing to do with it) the trees look incredible. <<10>>

PERFECT use of de-sat.

The color seems off for some reason.
08/11/2004 12:38:31 PM
That is nice. Maybe zoom out some more? Love the colors though. Somewhere in the Southern hemisphere?

I really like what you've done with the colors .. the only thing minor thing is that when I look at this photo it seems like the camera wasn't straight .. I'm not sure if this was intentional or not .. still a great shot. 8

Beautiful. Love the low angle of the shot. Interesting choice in post-processing to desaturate the blues and greens to achieve a lovely palette of warm tones. (At least, given the season and your location, I assume that's what you did.)
