Many thanks for the info Jim. We have some covered bridges I've yet to photograph, many are still in use. Prefer Mary Fran, thanks for asking but I don't mind Mary.

Area, Nice rich color and the compositions. Like the simplicity of it.

If you want, have a look...

Mary (or do you prefer Mary Fran?). This was taken 2 1/2 years ago and was one of my first trips with a digital. It was pretty much blind luck. PS says the settings were as follows: 1/400, 4.0, ISO 64. I just got around to PSing it last week. I decreased the brightness of the sky and increased the contrast to accentuate the brooding clouds. Then I selected the inverse of the sky, sharpened the bridge and grass and probably fiddled just a little with their contrast and saturation. Hope this helps.

Really like this Jim, great contrast between the green and grey, great composition also. I'm thinking if I tried a shot like this on an overcast day I would not have had enough light--any technical details to share with a beginner?

Fun to see that we got the same photos on a similar trip. 

 

Nice green grass and ugly sky, next time do a 2/3 grass 1/3 sky.

Cordialement,
