Photographer's Note

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
