I found this little bridge on a walk through a California national forest. Beautiful weather helped to make this photo even better.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Challenge: I can't think of a better way to celebrate Earth Day than with an image full of the greenery and wonder the occasion is designed to protect. A very fitting entry for this challenge and a great representation of how man (path and bridge) can coexist with the beauty of the natural world (forest).

Color and Composition: I love how you used the path to lead the eye out to the bridge and deeper into the forest. Nice exposure! The greenery framing the leading line is well exposed especially given the mixed lighting (sunlight and shadows). Only one bright spot (on the fern in the lower left) but even that is a minor tidbit. The placement of the bridge is slightly off from center which is a definite plus. I might have shifted it a bit more but the balance is also quite nice. I like that the bridge doesn't standout from the picture like a sore thumb and blends into the forest. All that greenery might be overwhelming for some but I agree with hkpdso that the picture is comfortable and peaceful.

Overall: You've got me imaging the sounds of a nearby stream or birds in the boughs. As a sucker for pictures with paths that lead off into the distance ... I'm ready to lace into my boots and discover the wonder around the bend. Beautiful...
