Here's a photo of a footbridge I took. I'm a novice so please make your critique generalized (next time try...). I know its straight in the middle, but I did that for balance. Also, the background is blown out, but I don't know how to make it so that isn't so. And I know the subject is uninteresting to most, but I'll be honest and admit I'm forcing subjects in order to keep learning (and I think that's okay considering this photo is for educational purposes and not show, right?). Lastly, how did I do on the contrast? I think its better than most of my photos with the way the shadows fall, but I would like some more advanced opinions. Once again, please make your comments as general as possible so I can hopefully get this Thank you very much!!! BTW, my reasons don't make me right, I'm just trying to show you where I'm coming from. Please correct me if I'm making any incorrect assumptions.
