Dear All,

Presently, autumn season is in full swing in Germany and one can see the beauty autumn light spreads in most evenings of course when the day is sunny.

I was on a walk along the river "Saale" and sometimes the view one gets is just wonderful. I saw a white boat parked in front of a holiday hut and I wanted to the capture the artwork this boat along with the trees were giving several options to present themselves as a lovely seasonal artwork. I admit that boat is bit OE and I could not avoid it - My apologies for that!

The autumn light was just splendid and it was late evening time when sun was saying good bye for the day with its bright light.

Hope you enjoy the autumn mood in this shot!

Kind regards,

Bom dia Paras,
Photo moving. A beautiful atmosphere, warm and strong colors, superb reflexes.
So, you wrote a beautiful autumn scene worthy of romantic compositions.
This was a mine picture, I would have burned a little the white on the vessel to remove all traces of OE.
Best wishes.

Ciao Paras, fascinating composition with fantastic reflections, wonderful autumnal colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Paras,
Good light management in this Nature shot. I like the green tones and their reflection in the mirror-like still water of the river.
Maybe the white boat is a little OE!

Hi Paras.

Such a stunning scene with the Willow tress reflecting so well, its like a mirror.
The boat however is completly gone in detail to exposure. Possible thought to cloned out as it is distracting. Stunning trees though, it needs to be said twice.

stv ;o))

The mirror reflection of the trees in the clam water adds a special touch to this tranquil scenic with a good mix of natural colors.
Elements are clear and sharp in your image.

Hi Paras!
Beautiful view, very attractive place and well composed work on your image. I would only play with white balance and levels to bring sky darker as well as boat.
Anyhow this is great picture TFS
Greetings - Tom

Hi Paras,
Beautiful calm water and great mirror reflection with details,
Nice point of view and beautiful autumn scene,
Nicely taken and done with an excellent deep of field,

HI Paras..nice shot....wonderful details and sharpness with excellent focus. Good work.


Incredible reflections - just like a mirror, beautifully captured. Welldone

Hi Paras,

The reflections on the water of the river are assets to the composition. The wideness of the river is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the reflections. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Awesome capture of this landscape! Love the reflection. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. A little OE otherwise well done, tfs.
