Not sure how to post bigger or more clear photos. Original copy looks great but when I downsize it comes out blurry.

Looks pretty nice, would love to see a higher res photo. Check this thread for a bunch of good, free sites you can use to upload the full original: http://www.uer.ca/...d=1&threadid=60002

Edit: I personally prefer postimage.org but I haven't tried all of the options

Throw away; poor framing a blue off shading on the top of the bridge span probably from shooting into the light, purple fringing and/or too wide an aperture setting. Looks over exposed.
Plus vegetation is gumming up the view.

Get some height with the cam, and work on the framing composition... the top line of the bridge look much better going into the right corner rather than the middle of the top of the frame.
Go full manual if you can and try to dail in the settings. Try starting with f/5.6-8 for aperture. If you can shoot RAWs, do so as it gives more exposure/WB correction leeway.

I do a lot of fine art photography myself so maybe I can help?

Beware of blown out highlights! The sky in your photo for example. If you have access to photoshop or are willing to chip out $10 a month for it, try taking 2-3 exposures to help get a high dynamic range. Just use a tripod so you end up cropping out less afterwards. Also look into the rule of thirds, golden spiral, and golden triangle as a means to help frame your future images better and get a nice balance look!



no god! please no! nooooooooooooo

Thanks for the pointers. I should also add I was on a steep hill while taking this photo. Became one with the dirt shortly after taking this photo 😂. Did not wear the right shoes...

Regardless of the technical flaws I think your photo looks pretty neat.

The image hosting guide is quite old and many of those sites are no longer free. I prefer to use imgur which conveniently has a built in "get share links". You'll want to grab the bbcode link and paste that into here.

You can also scale the size of the image (also described in that thread) by doing img=(width),(height) in the first brackets.

Speaking from a technical standpoint, the image is too hot. Try changing your ISO or stopping down the aperature. Much of the color looks like it's out of gamut.

As far as composition is concerned... good work!

Your composition is good, and another thing you could do to avoid the light washing out the image post-ISO adjustment is use a lens hood. I personally love the look of lens flares but for situations like this a hood would even out the exposure.



The #1 rule about poking things with sticks is never use your finger.
