This looks much better zoomed in. I liked it with an 8x10 aspect. Intriguing use of tone balance. Good luck.
I agree w/ MCP, very rural looking and in B&W it has old world feel to it
Interesting effect. Love the sky.
Nicely balanced and composed, recognizing simple detail well.. Reminiscent of the photography of Dorothea Lange who worked for the FSA and photographed much of rural life during the Great Depression. Voted!!
I agree with Bears comments vote
sometimes its ok to break the rule of thirds though. this may be one of those cases. it seems to work. great shot!
very understandable submitter! those clouds are beautiful! please post your other shot at the end of the week and drop me a note and invite me into your gallery. again, good luck this week.
I just wanted to thank you, lenscap1, for your advice. It is eagerly accepted and always appreciated. And the funny thing is, is that i did take another picture the way you described. I ended up choosing this one because of the clouds in it. But you are definetly right about the placement of the bridge. Again thank you and thank you to anyone else who likes my pictures.
I like your take on this week's topic because it is tack sharp when I zoom in and look around at the fine detail. Someone in the know a few weeks back pointed out that usually it is advisable to not split a photo by the horizon. I scrolled your shot up to where there was an inch or so between the top of the bridge and the top of the photo and I was very impressed with how much it enhanced the bridge as the subject. Just some food for thought as the result of my thoughts. I really like your entry! Best of luck this week.
Ahh, another one shot recently for the topic. I give ya a vote for that. Back for comments later.
