    Bridges and fall reflections

    Found a cool bridge on my adventure today, thought it would be fun to try and shoot some reflections. Comments and advice welcome.

    In the same area were these trees that made what I would call a "Natural Bridge" or and archway over the river, tried to capture the mood, not real sure if I succeeded.

    The signs of an addict. Not to worry all of us here are too.

    Agreed with Bobo.

    I don't know what was to the right of #2 (of 4) but I wish the vertical part of the bridge was not quite so close to the center of the image. That makes it a bit stagnate. Perhaps you could crop some of the left side while still maintaining the horizontal orientation. Perhaps not.

    Better to be picking stickers out of your pants than the other alternative.

    Number 2 for me as well looks like a nice place in the autumn (sorry the fall) for some reflections of thr leaves.

    I note what others have said, but this is the one that holds my attention.

    I think it's a lovely scene, very well captured.

    It is nothing at all like Adams' 'Merced River, Cliffs, Autumn', but it stimulated that image in my mind as soon as I saw it. Probably the strong tree trunks are what did it.

    I think, in this image, they do provide a strong main focal point and that, like in Adams' image, we can then allow our eyes to wander around the frame absorbing and appreciating the detail.

    I think it is a very fine image.

    Now, if you can just get $12,000 for prints of your image ................!!
