Default Diagonals - Abandoned Bridge In Alaska

This was taken a few years back...while on a moving train...not much time to compose. I didn't do any pp as this is all pretty much new to me. But I thought it was an interesting shot. I'll need to play with it some day...

no, not bad, the fog adds an eary feeling to it, wondering what is on the other side.

however that mood is slightly broken by the contrasty leaves stickin out the bottom, cloning them out will help. you may not need the deadspace at the top either

Personally, I would only take the leaves out but leave the space atop. Gives the bridge space to breathe and work its magic in the composition.

Like the way the bridge fades into the fog. Not to fond of the leaves at the bottom of the picture.

I like the fog, it gives it some wonder where does the bridge goes. I have to agree with Selvin, cropping out the leaves would make it a bit better.

I agree the leaves have to go but I wouldn't change anything else. Nice job.
