U Bein Bridge in the evening.
The teakwood bridge spans 1.2 km across the shallow Taungthaman Lake some 10 km south of Mandalay. It was built by U Bein in the mid-19th century when the capital of Innwa (Ava) Kingdom moved to the nearby Amarapura.
I am re-posting this photo as I have re-done the post-processing.
Many of your critics were saying that it was nice to see the colours on the silhouettes.
So I decided to make the silhouette with less contrast so that more colours of their clothes could be seen, and the sky looks also a bit less burnt.
I find this version slightly better, but some say the previous one with "true" silhouettes was better.
Let me know your thoughts on this. Thanks

it's a good idea to show the bridge during the day....we always see it at the sunset....
well seen and well done

Fantastic and graphic composition with all these moving silouhettes walking over the wooden bridge. Lovely scene, well seen and well presented.

Hello Julien, lovely catch here, i love the way you caught those people on the bridge. Nice silhouettes. It's like a moment suspended in time.

Il est agréable de voir ce type de photo sans coucher de soleil, ni silhouettes se détachant dessus, et il est bien plus original (et difficile ?) de voir en plein jour ce pont. Très bonne maîtrise de l'appareil ...
