On the trip back from Lincoln, NH to Boston yesterday, we made a stop in Campton to visit Blair Bridge, a well known covered bridge built back in 1870. I was fascinated by the engineering of these bridges whose main load-bearing members appear to be huge wooden arches built by bolting together bent planks. If you look at the full size version of the picture you can see the first of two or three sets of arches on either side of the bridge interior.
This picture is also the first I’ve processed with the new version of AuroraHDR. The 2018 release is even better than the previous version and I’m really impressed at the quality it produces even without much tweaking on my part. In another first, I played with Photoshop’s content aware healing brush for the first time too and removed a bunch of unsightly electric and phone wires that had been visible on the left side of the frame. All in all, this picture provided an excellent learning opportunity!
