Covered Bridge

Covered Bridge

On my recent holiday to Pennsylvania with friends I tortured them to stop for me to shoot a few landscapes. When they invited me to go on this little trip I thought they were interested in wildlife but they meant wild life, you know as in la vida loca! lol...

Sorry Amanda, i'm not too keen on this, it looks over saturated and a wee bit dull on my screen. The only way i could get it to look near right for me was to do an auto levels adjustment layer, then a hue and saturation adjust layer at - 51 on the saturation, then a brightness and contrast adjustment layer set to +17 brightness and +15 contrast and this seemed to make all the difference, this is just my personal preference, others may love it.

I appreciate the feedback. It is dull to begin with as it was taken very late in the day. I will give those numbers of yours a go. Thank you, Redrum. Smile

WOW Amanda I like this.One year ( 1998) Naomi and I took two months off of work. We found all the info we could on covered bridge's. Then headed out for the east coast. All in all we manage to see over 100 of them. Believe it or not we even found one in Calif. So I am going to give you a 10 with Thumbs Up! Smile Thumbs Up! and a Wink for your photo.

A beautiful scene. The reflection and that bridge is amazing. Nice lead in with the fence and through the bridge to the cabin. Lol your comment about trying to get shots! Viv

Hope you had a great time doing 'la Vida Loca'. This is a beautiful shot. Such clear reflection in the pond. I agree with Viv about the fence leading you in.SmileCat
