Bridge connects Columbia NH with Lemington VT. I wanted to try out the High dynamic range blending feature in Photoimpact on a fairly dificult subject. The full size image is quite nicely detailed. Resizing for posting of course loses this, but the exposure should look OK.

Edit: I slipped up when I posted this, and resized to the wrong aspect ration, stretching the bridge a bit. This should be correct.

Nice shot! I love covered bridges although they scare the heck out of me! I think I saw the "Headless Horesman" one too many times.

Did you take one from inside as well?

Thanks for the reply. I did several shots. This one is the interior from the NH side.

This one is from NH looking through to VT.

I like the covered bridges too, but I am not a fanatic about them like some people I have met, who plan their vacations around visiting the bridges, and have checklists of every one in the country.

Great inside shots...........the first one especialy. To those who are covered bridge enthusiats, there is one in Fort Colonge Quebec, near the Ontario border. I think it's one of the oldest in Canada but don't quote me on that. Last time I was there it was still standing. Every spring there would be a log jam down the river because of the bridge but it held up for a few hundred years. I'll check my old albums to see if I have a shot.
Anyway...........................nice shot of the inside.

Cool picture for sure but the blending gives the bridge a added in effect. Almost like in movies when something is added that is not actually there.

I guess I don't see what you do. I was pretty careful to get the lighting balance and details tomake it look like what the eye sees rather than what the camera does. The 8x10 I printed looks very natural. Where I am disapponted a bit is in the cloud colors around the edges, which in some parts is a bit greenish.

Thelighting range on the bridge interior shot is stretched a bit beyond the eye's range. The detailin theroof wouldn't show up with the bright outside light.
