This photo is composed very well. Looking at the bridge and your subject positioned in the middle of the two buildings is well thought out. Great shot and planning!

Absolutely arresting! There is something so sublime and dreamlike about this composition and the viewer really feels the grandeur of these antique buildings against the forest wall. Love how the forest is slowly swallowing the building.

Behind The Lens

Location
This is Nesso on Lake Como. The shot was taken from a speedboat on the lake.
Time
It was 2 or 3 PM. We spent all the afternoon on the speedboat enjoying that beautiful summer day and I had the chance to take a couple of shots during a break in front of this beautiful bridge.
Lighting
I didn't use any kind of artificial light...just the sun!
Equipment
I shot this picture handheld with my Sony a7S and a 24-70mm f/4 lens.
Inspiration
The girl on the bridge made my shot, without her I would not even take any picture from a floating speedboat.
Editing
Yes, after a few adjustment in Lightroom I had to straighten and crop the frame, remove a couple of people on the right side of the shot and finishing with an extra grading in Photoshop.
In my camera bag
I usually take my Sony a7S with a 16-35 mm Zeiss lens and a Sony RX10 III, a tripod, an eMotimo TB3 for timelapses and a couple of ND filters.
Feedback
I usually shoot landscape with long exposure and without people, but this time I could not long expose because of the lake waves and the girl on the bridge became the subject of my shot. I try not to have too many restriction over my work and my own style because sometimes it's fun to change something. Also, always take your camera with you!
