Thank you both.
I used the control points in Silver Efex to selectively bring the color back. You can also do it in Photoshop using layers.

Hi Robert,
I like what you did here converting the bridge in Silver Efex to accentuate the scene. I'm curious about the original color of the bridge. Nice detail on the bricks, but I wish the view at the end of the bridge was sharper.

Hi Kathy,
Thank you for your comments. It was a little windy and should have used a faster shutter speed. I was lying down on the bridge to get the framing I wanted.
Here is one of the frames to show the original color.

Such a great subject! Love the reflection. You definitely made the right choice with processing.

I did an HDR of a covered bridge, ended up masking in my one shot that was sharp.

Damn! If you're just 'trying out HDR', just think what you'll end up with when you get good at it!

I wish I could have started out with HDRs looking like that!

Thank you for your kind words Ken. This is the first one with a new camera and new HDR processor, still learning both.

Don Menges, dmenges, has posted some excellent HDR images in the "A Picture I took forum". He has set the bar for HDR.

Lots of detail out of that D800! I'm not so sure about a faster shutter. I kind of like it this way. Sort of water-color-y or kaleidoscopic.
