Sunset Bridge by Leong Seng Chee, on Flickr

Redid a landscape photo of mine, after watching an inspiring youtube video using lightroom. Everything was done from scratch, no pre-programmed filters were used. I wanted to get that sunset feel, that i felt the previous portrait picture of this same bridge missed. Opinions?

Really nice. Need some sharpening as for landscape. I to learn a lot from Sergei and his friend Mike Browne. Boosting up the bridge color I think should be nicer though.

Thanks for the input! Sharpening do you mean clarity? Boosted quite a bit d wo any more will look heavy. Or did you mean different? Btw picture is a cropped picture lol so it may be limitations due to that. As for the bridge, i did try to make the bridge brighter but i felt it took away from the bright sunset instead. Yea mike browne and serge are awesome they are the ones who inspired me to take photography a lil more seriously

Nice one, not much problem there. Personally, I would like to see some more contrast. What video? Want to watch it too.

Waiting for sunrise, was using cheap ND filter W-Tianya.

Im not sure what the others think, i liked the top half, and the bottom half, but i didnt like them together. My eyes just didnt know where to go, especially with that large patch of green at the right. If i scrolled down, and use my own pc screen to actually hide the first top 50% of the image (hide everything horizon up), i actually like it much much much more. Alternatively, i'd crop the bottom away from the third rock from the top, middle, onwards away.

youtube search serge ramelli and mike browne bro. the only youtube channels on photography i seriously follow.

Yep some sharpening/clarity on the bridge, or some HDR look on the bridge itself against the softness of the sky. Mike Browne is an awesome photographer sifu on field while Sergei is the Master of Lightroom.
For those who are interested on them here are their Youtube Channel:-

comments noted and appreciated. I get where you're going at, creating a stark contrast between sky and bridge. I prefer to make the sky pop more, but i was having a lot of problems with what i have. This was the best i could do regarding the sky. Id definitely prefer it to be more fiery though. Since i couldnt do it i decided to go for the sleepy calm feel instead

@nidzamputra, i like the subject matter, but two concerns i have IMO, i think u should not put your subject matter perfectly on top of the horizon background. The subject matter has blended into the horizon and does not stand out and scream "look at me" any more. Put the horizon either higher or lower than the subject matter. The bridge leading to the subject matter as well, dont make it parralel to the horizon again (although, it could work, have to see end result) but a safer way to lead the eyes to it is it starts off near the corner of your picture and travels inwards towards the subject matter. Im not sure if anything can be done about the skies, but either have it pop strongly with beautiful clouds, or if you cant, then i suggest blending it in to reduce the noise and make it creamy smooth. use masking to increase details of your subject matter tho so u dont blend the subject matter too much.

Try to emphasis which one for example 30% on the sky and 70% on the lake.

Awesome!
Usually flash sync of 1/200 or 1/250 and low ISO values indicate usage of flash haha, just a guess haha laugh.gif
If no flash is used, then those are really good natural light shots~
Keep it up thumbup.gif
