[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am often baffled when trying to put my images into a category. Seems sometimes they just don't fit.

This is another in the "Details in Nature" series. As with yestereday's post I ending up cropping about 3/4 of the image out. I think perhaps it is what I need to do. It is too difficult sometimes to see the possibilities through the viewfinder and on the LCD. It is so much easier for me to discover the picture within the picture once it is on the computer screen.

Bonjour Evelynn,
Splendide composition de couleurs et de textures. Les contrastes entre le feuillage de érables et le tapis de mousse est une excellente idée de cadrage.
Bonne journée,

Hi Evelynn,
Very nice composition and colour effect.

Hello Evelynn,
Excellent colour contrast and effective framing!
The colour of the leaves is oustanding, and contrasts so well with the rock full of moss!

Hello Evelynn,
What a beautiful capture of these bright red leaves against the moss- and lichencovered rock. I like your composition a lot with the two fallen leaves on the left. Very successful cropping!
Many thanks, Ulla

Hello Evelynn.
A very beautiful composition. Wonderfull autumn (or is it Fall) colours. I like the positioning of that lone rebel leaf. And the beautiful moss on the rock. Well done.
Best regards, Steve.

Hi Evelynn,
Just a really quick one. I had another very rough week at work and I'm now completely done for the day. I did look at your other photos, but wanted to say that I really love this one. The color contrast is stunning. I like the clean and simple composition and the shadeless exposure.
TFS this beauty.

Hi Evelynn

This is a brilliant composition you managed here and splendid ode for autumn colors, too.
I think your photos of "deails in nature" are getting better and better the closer you go to things, the more minimalistic the elements of the image are...that's why i feel that this one is amazing.
Your have here a splendid set of vivid leaves in the upper right corner of the frame, extending on the diagonal with the help of the two lonely leaves.
In contrast with the red leaves are the nice substratum here - the rocks and the grey moss.
The pattern thus created is lovely and simply eye-pleasing.
Wonderful work!

Bravo and TFS

You have the eye for beauty Evelynn, that composition is just stunning, I just keep on looking at it ! And you're right it's easier framing on the screen than on location. Well done !

Hi Evelynn,
This is a pleasing mix of color and texture.
Nicely composed and exposed.
Did you place or move the leaves on the rock?
Perfect placement for the composition.
Richard... see you later
