Curved Bridge

Out for a drive today with my Grand Daughter we came across this old curved bridge built in the 40's. Sure wish I knew how to get the iso, shutter and aperture info...

Cool bridge. No.1 is my preference, though I'd like to see more contrast, but that's me.

Composition is good . Keeps all the rules. In the days gone by, when you used the dark room to process the B&W. A "High Contrast" paper would be in order to bring out the rich blacks and bright whites. This photo would be dynamic if the contrast was racked to the fullest.

If you are working in Photoshop or similar program, do a little reading as to how and what to do with B&W conversion (not greyscale).

Good job.

might be cool if u sorta half desaturate the original colour (assuming it was taken in colour) give a bleak, drained atmosphere, and coolness to the trees etc.
