[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A "bonanza" can be a lucky, rich find of gold. Coming across pockets of wonderful autumn color is a photographic 'bonanza". I had more fun taking dozens of shots of the fall colors in this area. It was overcast and drizzly but that tended to saturate the colors even more.

Hi Evelynn,

Hi Evelynn
Very Beautiful shot of the fall colors. Im just not real keen on the FG. It kind of throws me off looking at it. For me I think its just to steep and high on the left side. You have some beautiful colors thowe.

hello evelynn,
beautiful colours of autumn presented well, the image has a great pov, beautiful composition, natural colour tones, excellent landscape shot,
well done,
tfs & regards

Hi Evelynn. Now this angled hillside shire compliments the photo. Colours are wonderful amongst the pale grasses in foreground.Normally this might be just an ordinary photo, but the POV you have makes it truly artistic.

Wonderful color combination. Beautiful landscape and artistic abstract picture.

Hi Evelynn,
Is like an oasis of color, isn't it?
I like the inclined hill you used to build the composition here, it adds variety to the lines and forms.
It's so good the trees seen at the back, each one are of a diferrent color, or in different stages of droping its leaves.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
Best regards,

Hello Evelynn

I really like the plumes of colour in this shot.
The lighting is very good with lovely well saturated colours.
The focus and details are sharp as usual.
Nicely cropped and presented.


Beautiful shot. The composition is wonderful. I love the dull grass in the foreground brings the fall trees out of my screen. Love the angle of the forground, and it emphasizes the fall trees as well.

Hello Evelynn,
You seem to be surrounded by wonderful very bright autumn colours, in comparison our colours seem quite dull! This is a beautiful composition in fabulous colours. I lilke the frosty looking grass too.

Hi Evelynn and very sorry for the delay

Another very beautiful shot from you and these amazing autumn colors.
It always fascinated me: in the summer, you see two trees next to another - just like you have here for example - but they are both almost the exact tone of green. Two or tree months later...look... one is yellow, one is red...isn't that amazing?
In fact the chemistry of this process is very interesting...but who needs to get into details, when you can just stay and atmire the outcome :)
Your shot is wonderful and definitely enhanced by the diagonal hillside that creates a nice angle with the vetical trees.
Of course the exposure is very well managed and the colors are needless to say splendid.

Bravo and TFS

Hello Evelynne,
Beautiful composition of this autumnal trees. The colour-combination is so interesting. I like the contrast between the grey ground in the front with the burning colors of the trees. I also like the diagonal presentation, it gives to the picture a certain impact.
Thanks and best regards

Hi Evelynn, the colors of Autumn/Fall in your part of the world are always spectacular. This is not the standard composition we expect but it works very well I think. Well done.

Hi Evelynn,
Just appreciating this wonderful shot from you. I am on a tour and internet connection comes at a premium here, hence doing a short job. Sorry.
