The photo was taken in the slightly later in the afternoon, I adjusted histogram to reduce the strong contrast of sky and dark bridge, perspective correction and a bit tidy up.. I wonder that if there is anything else I can do about it.All your comments , criticisms and MODs are welcome.Thank you.

have had a dabble for you (see mod) as you seem to have lost a lot of detail....exposing with such a bland sky is always a problem

I've just lifted the light and played around with the colour temperature and a slight crop to remove that block of flats on the RH side

hope you like it Smile

This looks like a wonderful subject but it's a shame about the position of the sun. The front of the dark wooden bridge is in shadow and, from the direction of the shadows, the sun seems to be just out of the frame to the top left. That means that there's quite a lot of flare and ghosting across the dark face of the bridge, which becomes noticeable when you try to lighten it much further.

If the bridge is near to where you live, it might be worth trying to retake the photograph earlier in the day, when you're not shooting so close to the sun. That should let you get more detail in the woodwork. If you do find yourself having to shoot into the sun like this, using your free hand to cast a shadow over the front element of the lens can reduce the glare — just make sure you keep your hand out of the shot! Smile

Well, I think this is a first for me, Xiaoli, but I haven't done you a mod because there is so much degredation on the bridge, as mentioned by Dave. If the original is any better, I'll have a go, if you'd like to put it up as a mod.

Well, Xiaoli, your first mod is a massive improvement! There's still a bit of glare but it's very much better than it was and the bridge is clearly visible, now. The problems with the sky are unavoidable and I think you'd be better keeping the water from the first version you posted, since the modded version has lost all the detail that used to be there. Looks much better, now, though.

What's the ISO?! I think it is very high! How about the Exposure value? and F point? They are high, either one of them are on a high level. This can easily be improved, though I must say that I find it very impressive and well done to you xiaoli!
