    Ok, So I went back out and shot the covered bridge again. I didn't get up as early as I wanted but was able to get a few shots before 9am. The sun was giving me a bit of trouble in a few of them. Let me know what you think.

    Nice shots BUT the Horizon is all messed up :)
    Did you use 18-55 ?

    David, I do like the way #4 turned out. It was plagued with light problems but with a ton of fun in Lightroom I was able to come up with a pleasing artistic rendering of the bridge.

    lol... ifi, I used the 50mm on 3, 4, and 5 and the 18-55mm on 1 and 2. Check out the Real Horizon Thread for an answer to your Horizon statement.

    #4 rocks. Honestly. The light isn't problematic as much as it adds a TON of warmth and character to the image. The 'haze' just rocks. I might selectively darken the dark areas (if you do it globally you risk de-hazing the image) just to increase the overall tonal footprint, but... I really, really like #4 out of the set.

    4 definitely caught my eye as well, I like the amount of light entering the lens...was there any flare that you took out in PP? mind posting the original of it?

    As others said, 4 is the best.

    Have Fun,

    Opening the post with the close-up shot of the wagon wheel made a very natural lead-in to the 2nd and 3rd shots. The opening photo made these MUCH more compelling than the bridge shots that went 13 hours with no comments...this post already has more activity than the first. I saw the first post, but felt the photos lacked immediacy, and I really didn't have much to say about the first post with its bridge shots. ON this post however, I immediately felt much more engaged by the photos, which are more dynamic,and well, just seem better to me. Just thought I would pass that observation along.

    Thanks guys... I will post the original just so you can see how I didn't intend the shot to look... If it were not for Lightroom, this shot wouldn't exist.

    I started working with it just to see what I could do. This is SOOC.
