[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As a watercolor (aquarelle) painter I am often enthralled by the mingling of colors on my palette. This photo reminds me of the wonderful blending and gradations that are possible with that medium.

Hi Evelynn

I think the way you have captured the leaves here is lovely - quite impressionistic - you can almost feel them moving. Lovely colours.


Wonderful fall colors Evelynn. I like the grouping of the three trees that just happen to frame out another tree.

OK..I am going out on a limb here...but I say this is a perfect picture to make a watercolor out of...Don't some painters take pictures so they can later remember? Not sure where I heard that..but besides the point...

Evelynn - this is gorgeous. The white birches provide the dramatic contrast to the bleanding of colors and creates a funnel or viewpoint of the uadience (me). Very nice, very well done.

hi Evelynn, I love the colours in this photo, it is exquisite, beautiful and well composed. Thank you!

autumns colours blend nicely as they have soft edges and muted complimentary tones.
this is a shot i would take as well..and stand for a bit in silence and let my mind go blank and my eyes fill
very beautiful

Hi Evelynn!

Indeed, the color palette in your picture is not only extensive, but also very pleasant. I like to say that autumn is my favourite season, your picture once again proves me that I'm right.

In opposite to your other similary pictures, I have a little problem with the composition. From my point of view one of the trunks is too centered and therefore always attracts my eye, althoug it isn't (probably) not the center of interest. But this is very personal and does not influence on the fact it is a marvellous picture.

Kind regards


Hello Evelynn,
Great composition with a very warm colouration!
very good sharpness, vivid colour and details in the shot

Hi Evelynn,

Hello Evelynn

A lovely autumnal scene.I agree that this would lend itself well to becoming a watercolour.I have noticed in the past your comments about certain photos and how they would make nice paintings.I too look at many photos in this way.Do you paint?
You have a painter's eye for composition in photography.
The colours here are rich and well saturated.
Well done

Hi Evelynn

I love that your latest shots seem to form a series. I love the abstract nature of the shot with the tight framing, the colours and textures. My eye is drawn to the clearing with the mauve tones



Hi Evelynn,
And you have blended these colors beautifully, the white trunks are a great accent to the autumn foliage Beautiful. TFS

Hi Evelynn, this is a refreshing view of a perfect autumnal scene. You managed a myriad of warm colour tones and hues, beautiful. Autumn happens to be my favourite month but this year, in the UK, it has been very damp and wet and very grey, hardly and sunny days at all. So nice to see this lovely compositon with great light, detail and clarity.

Hi Evelynn,
I did not know know you're a painter as well..Very good :)
And I agree, this photo has a wonderful blend of colors throughout.
PS - Hope the you got the new PC/monitor setup going without too many problems.

Love the sparceness of the poplar leaves. Trevor

Looking back at all of your fall photo's is really making me anxious for fall again! It is my favourite season! You've captured so many great coloured shots like this one,
