I originally had another version of this up, but i found out that it broke the rules of this section of the forum. Here's the original, without any weird PP.

I find that when i learn about a new technique i kind of go hog-wild with it, and i try to force it where it shouldn't go - having another look at this pic in its original version (+ minor contrast adjustment) I wonder why i felt the need to try the whole g-blur in the first place.

Looks like a road I'd enjoy taking. Thanks for sharing.

I don't really care too much for this shot. The composition is great but the red appears to be over-saturated. I don't care for the Gaussian blur on the background. It looks like a pasted in picture.

Please read the forum guidelines at the top of the forum. If you scroll down to the end, you will see what is normally permitted in the way of post-processing. Gaussian blur is not one of the options. These guidelines apply to this forum (Biweekly Shootout) only. I don't think there are any restrictions in the other forums.

I just noticed an object in the background, to the left of the bridge. Is that a dog or a shapely young lady on her hands and knees?

It's actually a couple walking. I uploaded a reverted version of the shot, please let me know what you think!

I like this version much better. This confirms to me that the bridge was over saturated in the first photo you posted. The color looks much more natural. I also like the background in this one much better.

I have visited a lot of covered bridges on Oregon and Washington (only 2 in WA) and most are white but a few are painted barn red, the color of this bridge.
