    On the bridge

    Does it seem that the girl is watching the cloud in the sky? I like the atmosphere.
    However, actually, she is looking at the photographer in front of her...

    Yes, it could be taken that she is looking away and that it's her back we are seeing. The difficulty is that her face is fully in shade and we can see no detail. I think the idea of using the umbrella in the image is very good, but there needed, I think, to be some way of throwing some light up onto her face.

    But I do like the idea of the image very much. It is an excellent idea for photographing such a bridge and, for me, really works as a composition.

    Most definitely, Zhiyong!

    The girl adds a nice 'human element', the pink umbrella grabs attention, and both add a needed sense of scale to the structure.

    I love the angle and composition. What a great bridge to photograph and the purple umbrella really throws some colour into it. To me it looks like the girl is looking away from the camera which works well so no need to put light on her, its an umbrella after all to shade her from the sun. I think thee are more great pictures to be taken here and would love to see some dawn and dusk images.

    Well done shot kakaka. I think the shadow at the bottom right corner is a little distracting.

    I'm not the best at doing this and I am sure someone can correct my technique. That said I do like it better without the shadow.

    Thanks, Jason. It looks much better! It's a good idea to remove the shadow.

    Thanks, Wayne. This is a beautiful place at sunset time. But I don't have a satisfactory image.

    Not yet anyway, keep going there, the colours will be interesting when the rocks glow. I'll look forward to seeing it if you get one you like.
