Very strong contrast and highly saturated colors.Quality of the photo is not so admirable on contrast of your other post,may be the side effect of over sharpenning.
But i like the picture due to its splendid composition taking the steel bridge,that is typical in mountai side area,some men are gossiping in the bridge,thats proves it is a calm place to hang out!! and it is so, i visited there.Kinnaur means to me to enter into the himalayan green lap at high altitude.

I'd love to go across that bridge and keep on walking towards that snowcapped peak in the far background!
Attractive and inviting picture for sure!
I enjoyed sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition!
TFS - congrats,

The bridge is perfectly positioned in this picture, a bit to the side and it leads the eyes against the marvellous landscape on the other side. A magnificient view here!

I like how you used the bridge to lead an eye towards the second plan. The mountains give very lovely background and frame the composition from the top. Good proportions and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Great capture, you're really making the most of the situation. It's nicely framed using the bridge leading to the focal point - the breath taking snow capped in the bg. Exposure is fine despite harshness of light, good colouring and fine contrast. Fine shot, Congrats
