This really does feel like something shot 150 years ago. I think the motion blur of the running water adds to that effect.

A very nicely composed beautiful shot, Wolfgang!

With best regards,

Interesting choice of using monochromatic tones. The angular tree trunk and the soft curve and angles of the bridge creates harmony and balance. Nice work.~~~~~L

Ruud, Linda, Ivan,

many thanks for your comments. @Ivan: I agree about the foreground - this is an aspect I'm not really satisfied with my photo.

cheers, Wolfgang

Hello Wolfgang

This is nice and soft. Maybe a detail in the front would make it a bit fuller but it's easy on the eyes nevertheless. Best regards, Ivan.

Dreamy.  The sepia tone helps to nudge this into nostalgia even further.

Love this old time scene.  Very well composed.  Best Regards,

At first I thought you had been to Antietam National Battlefield, Wolfgang!  This is very reminiscent of "Burnside's Bridge" over Antietam creek.  Just a bit smaller.  Nice leading lines, detail, and atmosphere.  I don't see anything HDRish in this at all.  Not that that should matter one way or the other, but there is nothing excessive here, it strikes just the right "tone" so to speak.

By the creek This is a combination of 3 shots - I used Nik HDR Efex tool to get more details in highlights and shadows without looking (too) "HDR"-ish.
