[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After watching the nearby mountains gradually change colour over the past few weeks, I found myself having to scramble lately to capture some nice autumn images as the leaves have changed very fast in the past week and some trees are losing their leaves without them changing at all. Many trees have gone from green to dead brown without passing through red and yellow. I fear global warming is having an impact.

Super shot Steve. Real nicely saturated! Very secluded feel to it. You truly enjoy the woods as I do. I can tell by your care you take in all of your scenics.

This is wonderfully composed with very well shown colors and a nice soft mood achieved with the misty background.

Nice shot! Wonderful wood, colors and light are great

Hi Steve and Ioana

Jolie photo et belle composition


Hello to you both
This is great with the light, mist, trees in silhouette, glorious greens, dof is spot on..its all superb...apart from (my eye only)..the stump with which you have composed the fg is to central..maybe to the left or right slightly would have lead a better lead in line.
Great work and tfs..its a lovely mood.
best regards

Hello Steve,
This is a wonderful misty forest scene. I like the tree stump leading your eyes into the distant trees in the middle. Excellent DOF and beautiful colours.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Another great forest landscape from you.I like a lot the composition, the athmosphere and the beautiful colours.


Hi Steve and Ioana
Thanks for showing this nice picture. Looking at it you can feel this kind of mystery caused by the mist. I like very much these kind of moments in the forests (especially in the mountain's forests) and I like pictures that show it. And it is not easy to do this. You've managed - congratulations :)

Fall happened very fast here. We have had some nice color in lower elevations but in the mountains it went so fast we missed a lot of it. I love most of this image... the colors, the mist, the exposure and sharpness. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the dark stump right in the center. I thing it isn't essential to the message of this photo and it is so dark and centered that one's eye kind of locks onto it and doesn't move easily to the three quarters of the image above it.
Just a personal opinion of course. : )

mmm i'm waiting the fog to try to make same pics,very very nice atmosphere,thanks for share,Luciano

Hi Steve,
An other wonderful moody photo where the mist gave you the perfect change to expose a forest photo correctly. I really love the stong shapes of the almost straight trees and how they slowly fanish into the fog. Wonderful colors and a really wonderful mood.
