Photographer's Note

This bridge is in the park surrounding the summer palace in Beijing. There are several beautiful bridges in the park, this was the one of the few that I got a reasonably good picture of.

I had some difficulties editing this one, since the contrast was rather bad and the bridge was almost as white as the sky I had trouble making the bridge stand out. What I did was pull the tone curve at white to max, right under white i pulled it down, so that the very light shades became lighter and the almost very light shades became darker, this way I increased the difference between grey and white. I also decreased gamma to around 70 %. After resizing I both sharpened and applied unsharp mask.

The bridge would of course have been better in sunshine, but the hazy look isn't totally bad either I think.
