Tzelefos medieval bridge

By aeras  
The medieval stone bridge of Tzelefou (Gefiri tou Tzelefou Greek: γεφύρι του ΤζιελεφούWink
Tzielefos bridge is build at a really beautiful location at Paphos forest, It is an ancient bridge built during the Venetian rule of Cyprus (1489 - 1571).

The picture was taken in December and I had to get really wet for this but fortunately the water was not so cold !.

I would like to use a polarizer to get richer color on the leafs but I do not have one for the Nikon 14-24 , so I used luminosity masks to selectively lower somehow the highlights on the leafs and rocks. some vignette was also added to draw attention to the water and bridge.

Nikon D800 , Nikon 14.0-24.0 mm f/2.8, exposure @ 14mm f/10 , ISO 200 , 1 second

Not only rich colour but also clever composition. I like the way that the low perspective allows me to look through the bridge and up at the trees. The leaves caught on the rock in the foreground are the beginning of my visual journey along the stream. Very nice!
