[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I’m so happy to be sad.
Golden yellow is the glow of my heart,
Lusting for grey drops of melancholy.
I’m looking for the light, feeling the shade.
The refreshing green is fading,
Giving way to deadly gaudy colours.
In the deep silence I only hear
The rustling question about
Where this path is leading to.

Kind regards

Hello Marcus.
Beautiful autumn shot, magnificent colours, tones and hues with perfect light. I love the low pov the vertical lines of the trees . Very well composed with good focus and exposure.Best regards Siggi

This leaf-strewn trail through the forest undergoing autumnal transformation fascinates me and I so deeply desire to walk on it, Markus. Well, I'm doing it now in spirit. . .
The view evokes a sombre mood of the kind that reflects over the time gone by and the time ahead.
Your note in verse articulates that mood beautifully.
Thanks and regards.

Ciao Markus, my today neighbour, lovely and peaceful wiew of fantastic forest, wonderful light and splendid autumnal colors, very well done my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hello Markus,
beautiful and beautiful indeed. The softness and the ambience of light at the end of the path is very spectacular. Nice colour rendering and excellent view.
Well composed shot of this beautiful autumnal forest.


Hi Markus.
I'll never get bored with the autumn colors and you have captured well under beautiful lighting. This is just so good that I could lie under those trees and look up the sky for the whole day.
Regards - Jusni

Hello Markus,
The November darkness that we have just now is shown in this forest shot, but it is also nicely combined with the last of the autumn colours that glow where there is light in this superb composition of a part of what seems to be a nice walking area.
Thanks and have a nice evening,

Lieber Markus,
Sehe gerade Deine melancholischen Verse und das dazugehörige Herbstbild .
Eine schwierige Aufgabe für den Fotografen bei schwachem Licht. Da muss man wirklich das Stativ brauchen. Sehr schön Dein Ausblick auf den blätterbedeckten Weg, flankiert von silbernen Stämmen und gelben Laub. Wie subtil und ergreifend.
Werde auch ganz melancholisch dabei...
Wünsche Dir noch einen schönen Abend
Herzliche Grüsse

Hello Markus,
Beautiful photo of this forest path in splendid warm colours. There is light at the end, symbol of hope. Good sharpness and DOF.

Hello Markus,

an nice autumn picture by you.
Good pov and sharpness, maybe lower pov where better.
That pice with the sky I see a little pf but that's the only thing.
Fine autumn colours.


Hallo Markus
What a delightful image to see so early in the morning. It has such a relaxing feeling to it, and I am sure it must be just as peaceful walking around in those woods. The arrangement of colours of the autumn leaves scattered on the surface is truly eye-catching. I also like the wide open space and the path one's eyes follow into the distance. The ray of sunlight shining above the trees far in the distance is such a pleasure to look at. Thanks for sharing a delightful view. Best regards.

Hello Marcus very beautiful picture , details, light and sharpness perfect, interesting moment. A nice imagine. Regards, Paolo

Bonjour Markus,
Très bonne maitrise de la lumière faisant resplendir les superbes couleurs automnales.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Markus,
A beautiful capture of a Beech forest that looks just like where we often go for a walk. I like your point of view and the beautiful colours and contrasts in light. The autumn colours are gone here now and the trees are bare and the ground thick with leaves. Hopefully we won't get too much snow this year!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hola Markus

Despues de todo lo hecho, te ha quedado una imagen sensacional de este RAW, colores naturales a otoño poético. Fantastico POV. Parece una postal...

Un saludo de Antonio

Hi Markus.
A very touching note and fantastic shot. It is a true 3D-image of a wonderful place. Lights and shadows, warm colours, terrific clarity and transparence of the image create a fine and calm mood. Bravo and many thanks for nice work.

Hello Markus,
always a real pleasure to see something new from your lens and your minds eye. I love the subtle, rich autumn tones you caught here, and your chosen POV had alot of depth. I must say i find the bright sky a touch distracting, but thats only a minor thing. As always, evocative and thoughful work, thanks you.

Hi dear Markus ,
So nice scenery.
Love it.
Kind regards

Ciao Markus,
il tempo passa ..... l'autunno è terminato ... è arrivato l'inverno e con esso Natale e simbolicamente una nuova vita .... piena di auguri per un futuro sereno ....
bellissima immagine accompagnata da una splendida poesia, la "melanconia" anche per me è un piacevole struggente sentimento ..... spero di poter ammirare presto qualche tua nuova immagine
Buon Natale e Felice Anno Nuovo a te e ai tuoi cari
Ciao Maurizio

Hi Markus,
Once again you managed to capture my attention with this lovely image and your words have made me see it in a totally different light. Very well done and thanks for sharing.
