Hello to the forum.

I am very interested in bridges. This is a photo I took of a foot bridge at our state park here in Savannah, Ga. I laid down to get the angle I wanted.

Would like to improve my technique for this kind of shot.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions/comments.

Tracy

the B&W works for this shot. i like the perspective, and the way the shadows mirror that effect on the boardwalk itself. almost seems a little crooked, though... perhaps that's my eyes? :? and for my taste, could perhaps just a bit more contrast...

i like this one.. the low perspective gives interest and the mono presentation puts emphasis on the textures and the shadows..

it is tipped to the clockwise maybe a degree? not sure..

This any better? I adjusted the shadows and straightened just a touch.

I like this one: sharpness, viewpoint is good, tone of colour works. angle at which you shot works. This is a good capture. Thanks. Jaki.

Thank you for your advice and comments.

I think edit looks much better than #1.

Appreciate you taking a look.

i like it ......but .!! if u had just been a little more to the right it would have been better.

nice to see a shot not shot from the stood up with camera to eye position, i try to take shots from different angles

We have a famous wooden bridge about a mile from where I live.

I found it's very difficult to take a really excellent picture of a bridge and make the photo look as good as reality.

Mountain vista's are like that too.

Having said that, try taking shots from a number of perpectives in different light (morning, evening, etc. etc.) until you get something you really like.
