    Most were built between 1825 and 1875. They were designed to keep snow off the bridges preventing decay and rot. There are exactly 100 covered bridges in our state of Vermont.

    I did wonder the same, as I have seen films with a very similar looking bridge. Like the HDR process.

    And one Penny took a while ago. Spanning the Connecticut River, I thnk it's the longest covered bridge in the world.

    The Bridges of Madison County movie took place in Iowa. Vermont has many covered bridges. Here's another iPhone shot of one.

    Haven't posted any shots processed by Google's Snapseed in a while. We took the grandkids to Queehee, Vermont and I got this shot using both the HDR Scape and Drama filters. The horizon isn't titlted. The bridge itself isn't level.

While it’s true that it is often desirable to deliver the maximum amount of visual information to your audience, this is not always the case. There are times when a crushed and burnt out shadow or a super-bright highlight are just what you need to bring a photograph home.
    Selenajain. Were you referring to the two photos of Patmore, or the two photos of, Caz ?

    Very impressed with the Google Pixel 3a phone and edited in Snapseed.
    Almost HDR Snapseed Perspective tool has worked well on the converging walls.

    The second image is taken with my Canon EOS-R with a 24-70 f2.8 - without losing the top of the building, I'm unable to correct the verticals much. It's also a slightly wider view - I wanted to include the statue of Josef Layon on both images.

    Re: DSLR vs. iPhone

    An interesting comparison - I've tried something similar on a recent holiday to France. I haven't edited the camera shot yet, so will post when I have. This time I didn't take a DSLR with me, all photos this holiday were on either the Google Pixel 3a or my Canon EOS-R. Only took 2 lenses with me, too - a 50mm f1.4 and the mk 1 24-70 f2.8. Didn't miss the distance too much - apart from when I was sitting on a second floor windowsill and trying to capture fast moving swallows in their nests one floor above my head!

    Still very similar in quality.
    But it does look like the Canon image comes out slightly on top.
    Well that's how it looks on my screen !

    I tried to upload them to the gallery but, at 6 mb+, the iphone photo was too large so I lowered the resolution. Here are the full sized shots, starting with the Canon 200D

    Hi Pat.

    Very difficult to guess which is which, as they are very similar in picture quality.

    I am guessing that if both originals were enlarged, we would probably see the difference, and that the Canon photo would be better.

    Both photos look in focus and good colour.
