    It's been a long time since I posted, but I am proud of this one. It is the Michigan Central Railroad Kettle Creek Bridge located in St. Thomas, On. Built in 1929 but no longer in use. Plans are to turn it into an elevated park. Pleased to hear your thoughts and constructive criticism.

    Hi Popem77,

    I like the image as well. Strong composition!
    But To my eye, the whole image feels overprocessed.
    Even though we are late in the day the colours are too saturated on the orange and green end (bushes..they are stealing the show for no reason) and it's oversharpened in other areas.
    I'd love to see what the raw file or a less processed version looks like. Then if you like, I'd even take a stab at an edit.
    I would bet that with a bit of simple dodging and burning it would sing louder than this version.

    Hope that may help

    Marko, thanks for the comments. Agreed with over processed comment. A little too zealous in being artistic. This image was created using three different exposures. I am attaching the three exposures I used and would be glad to see what you would come up with.

    Do you mind telling us what software you used to process the three photos?
