A picture of a two hundred year old teakwood Ubein bridge, which is probably the most impressive landmark of Amarapura and Burma in general. I know that this is a must subject to be photographed and I have seen the same subject probably numerous times on TE.
This is my version of the famous icon, taken almost sevens year ago from a rowcanoe on Thaungtaman Lake

nice simple composition
very famous place often presented even at TE
probably not taken with a tripod
and is slightly out of focus
cool colors of the background
I wish you a pleasant Saturday

Hello my friend, what i like the most about the composition here is the angle of the shot because the legs of the bridge seem to never end. It's like she's walking into the sky somehow. Lovely colors also. Good job.
npecanhuk (76927) 2013-02-02 4:51
Although I miss a bit more of sharpness and, maybe, I'm not sure about the colors either, what pleased me in this picture was your work with chosen pov, composition and management of light!
sevy (58) 2013-02-02 6:11
It is so an interesting and strange and graphic subject that it is always a pleasure to see good shot from that.
Of course there is the colorfull sky after storm, but it is mainly for the lonely walking woman giving the scale and well placed among the wood bridge that I like this shot.
Cricri (123740) 2013-02-02 8:16
Bel effet de lumière sur le pont de bois, effet graphique bien composer avec la présence de la personne, un joli fond pastel, très belle réalisation
ACL1978 (7511) 2013-02-02 8:39
Yes, I think I've seen this impressive bridge even quite recently here. This is a lovely version of it, with the gradient light shifting from warm to cool, almost led by the woman in red as she crosses. Good strong contrast and sunset light. Thanks!
rychem (40681) 2013-02-02 9:06
Great graphism of this wooden construction taken against the sunset sky, warm light,nice composition with the lady walking on the bridge
Noel_Byrne (33060) 2013-02-02 11:25
This place is new to me, so a pleasure to behold. The soft pastel colours are beautiful, as is the soft light on the right hand side. The person on the bridge is a brilliant inclusion, giving an idea of the size of this bridge. It looks huge! It also looks quite delicate. A very soft and gentle image, really nicely done.
All the best
baclama (18884) 2013-02-02 11:29
ce pont est tres celebre sur TE mais rarement avec ces couleurs, cette lumiere...
et puis il est tellement beau que j'imagine qu'une fois devant on veut faire SA photo!!!
c'est tres beau
m (0) 2013-02-02 11:33
I think it's a wonderful photo. The light is everything here, it reveals the beautiful colors and creates a contrast with the graphic lines of the bridge. The little figure up there brings this ephemeral picture to life.
Thanks and best wishes
zanzi (13690) 2013-02-02 12:05
Your version is quite different from the hundreds I have seen myself. Generally the sun is included in frame and therefore we are missing all the wonderful colors you have in yours.
Gigidusud (21247) 2013-02-02 13:14
Another version with original framing and splendid light.Great idea,well done!
Have a nice week-end.
bukitgolfb301 (44279) 2013-02-02 13:46

A very attractive artistic capture of an everyday scene. I like the colors and the calm atmosphere. Well taken, have a lovely Sunday.
lousat (95902) 2013-02-03 1:38
A pic that looks like my last post..ehehe...but the people is different,and the atmosphere too,there is a special light into this magnificent composition,essential and colorful as i like! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

papagolf21 (106811) 2013-02-03 4:01
Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Toujours des photographies de qualité, celle-ci n'échappe à la règle.
La réalisation est de toute beauté.
siolaw (38292) 2013-02-03 4:07
Good version too.. I like the colour gradient as a background and the lady is well placed with soft light from behind.
Well composed and framed too.
maria-v1981 (10932) 2013-02-03 4:48
That's a simple and minimalist picture. A well seen and composed with a beautiful colour scheme and fine textures. I simply love this image. Its wonderful.
Have a nice evening,
marabu61 (11229) 2013-02-03 5:08
this is a strikingly beautiful shot of this iconic burmese landmark. I personally never grow tired of pictures of the U Bein bridge, it is such a beauty.
Great POV, nice light and the lonely women walking the bridge just gives the composition the needed live.
have a good sunday
emilbo (22616) 2013-02-03 6:53
Bien pensée cette magnifique photo de fin de journée. J'aime beaucoup la composition avec les semi-silhouttes du pont et la femme bien placée au 2/3. Beau contraste de couleurs avec le ciel qui passe du bleu au jaune.
Bravo!... et bonne semaine,
pajaran (64410) 2013-02-03 7:20
Interesantan kontrukcija od drveta.
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina i kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobra kompozicija, lepo pokazano.
Interesting wooden structures.
A good time recording, sharpness and contrast, beautiful color.
Good composition, nice revealed.
All the best.
kato (11630) 2013-02-03 7:29
You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the tasteful wooden bridge in old times. And, you catch a woman who is crossing the bridge by a good position. And, it's effective for the color contrast in the sky.
bayno (18344) 2013-02-03 8:06
i like so much your version, very good POIV and fraaming, also the colors and the light is so particuar, ypu cach perfectluy the mood of this ancient place...
my best regards,
adramad (48426) 2013-02-03 9:04
Superb perspective from the water level, the structure of this fantastic old bridge, is impressive in its height, considering it is a work made by a people without means, only through their efforts, the woman who is crossing is a great addition, she gives us great proportions.
I really like these fuzzy color tones which serve very well as a background image.
As always a good note on the subject and an impeccable job.
Have a nice day.
Graal (103038) 2013-02-03 9:37
unusual view of bridge and lonely woman. Amazing construction. Good photowork and comment in note.
Have a nice evening.
Schnappilic (9692) 2013-02-03 11:39
A splendid compositional idea using a super warm light. The result is huge! Congratulations!
fabianoleite (11971) 2013-02-03 14:22
Very interesting old bridge, it looks very fragile, and the lack of a ground makes it more spectacular, as if it were very height (maybe it is). Great lights! Congratulations!
jemaflor (101321) 2013-02-04 3:12
interesting graphism and soft ligt, I like these tones and the human presence, well taken and presented.
mirosu (16273) 2013-02-05 0:13
Excelent detail photo of this unique wooden bridge. I like the view up. Excellent exposing for the sky has nicely captured the sky colors and made a good silhouette of the bridge and the woman walking on it. Excellent.
macjake (71059) 2013-02-05 1:12
well, we all photograph the Iconic subjects from the countries we visit or live in right? its what we as photographers do! its ok!
I'm glad to see that you composed or cropped the photo so that there are spaces between the frame edges and the wood, its not good when the wood is half inside and half outside the frame.
whats unique about your shot are the color ranges, love the purplish tones on the left, very unique.
and the light is striking the wooden posts elegantly along the bottom areas
very nice shot, be proud of this one :)
Bluejeans (64251) 2013-02-05 5:12
Ola Abmdsudi ,
Bonita esta tua versão deste lugar bem conhecido no Te esta velha ponte de madeira , bonitas as cores de fundo , gostei do momento com a mulher a passar , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
Janusz1974 (2824) 2013-02-05 10:01
I like the peaceful atmosphere and the impressive composition. Very attractive shot.
josepmarin (58359) 2013-02-05 13:05
a difficult cross-light, managed well, in a good composition, where we can enjoy this teakwood bridge, under a special point of view from below.
I like the great graphical effect and the vitality added by the woman who walks over this nice and simple bridge.
A beautiful work of seven years ago.
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-02-05 14:03
A 200-year-old wooden bridge?! That's amazing especially for that part of the world where you receive plenty of rain. Awesome composition. I like the addition of the woman, it humanized the scene. Great lighting and wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.
nikkitta (17068) 2013-02-06 17:54
76 points, now 78, for a capture of a well known bridge ( hope to be there some day) creativity has always a prize and you deserve them
Great soft colors, lots of graphics and the woman, just at the right place
Greetings and TFS
vladic (4561) 2013-02-07 3:21
A nouveau une vue très graphique. Image très étonnante avec d'une symphonie magnifique de couleur et lumière.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

I see the materialization of a ghost walker in the sky traveling towards Heaven without suffering from dizzy spells!
Such a long way to rise to the higher ranks of Paradise!
An artful piece of exoticism !
amaryllis (37039) 2013-02-07 7:52
impressionnante photo de ce pont et de cette femme passant; les couleurs qui accompagnent sont douces.
une superbe réalisation qui me plait beaucoup
Waylim (25436) 2013-02-12 9:45
Beautiful image of this famous location. I was here not during the day, it was nice but did not have this kind of mood and atmosphere. The lone person walking on the bridge adds so much to the composition. The dark cloud and slight warm color of setting adds to the moodiness.
adores (46299) 2013-02-13 17:11
Once again you got a different photo of a so well known place. The colours of the sky in background make is so unique. I like the way you framed the lonely woman with the red blouse, crossing the bridge. You framed just part of the bridge and yet it seems huge, compared to the woman.
mayjayne (6618) 2013-02-17 2:57
Yes, we have seen so many versions of this well photographed bridge; each with a little differentiation and uniqueness, I think. In yours here, it states simplicity, and the well chosen angle for the setting sun and the well timed placement of the solitary figure, with the sun catching the back of her brightly coloured attire, works wonderfully.
elenimavrandoni (0) 2013-02-19 17:22
A very unique and magnificent version with the lonely silhouette moving with grace through the very old wooden bridge!
A joy to my eyes!!!
all the best,

amazing wor, fine woman, fine bridge, good low POV, good composition.
