Un dernier hommage à l'automne qui lentement laisse sa place à l'hiver. L'automne nous remplie de jolies couleurs que j'aimerai partager avec vous.

The photo makes impression by well saturated colors, especially red - repeating in many elements throughout the frame. Very effective are light reflections on leaves. Althought I'm not sure I understand the composition, reminding of a "an artist's order" we say in Poland. It means - many elements put together seeming, at first look, without any clue. But it should be a clue, even if not at second, but third look. It's hardly to find.

Comparing this photo with your another, that seems to me of similar sort: "Thistle Part 2" - I can see there order in disorder. The plant itself arranges the frame.

Coming back to this photo the leaves, as the rest of environment, almost lost their real meaning, but didn't gain another one. Too many forms, not repeating enough nor refering one to another.

Hope you don't mind my criticism ;-) With best greetings - Piotr.

Gosto das cores Luciana, a principio e não entendi o segmento, mas acho que já vi esta foto e depois vi que é um rio e as folhas desceram dele e ficaram presas aos arbustos.
Eu gosto da coloração e das formação das folhas.
Bonita a foto, um belo visual.
Parabens pela foto

There are strong elements and intriguing proportions in this picture. It is almost Kafkaesque in its rendition. And this is what makes it special. A very unusual tribute to the colours of autumn Luci.

I liked the colors,wet leaves give a freshing feeling to me,

This is one of the best hommage I 've seen of the autumn Luciana. Your PS work was very effective and the whole composition is more than a beauty...thanks.


great colors, and it looks so surreal...

I like both versions equally, Luciana. Beautiful compo, and magnificent autumn colours... A beauty, TFS.

A painting resembling beauty this compositie. Really complete beautiful. This version stands me more to that in ws.
Thanks for sharing.

Olá Luci,

Mas que belo trabalho!Esta focagem/desfocagem está um espanto.Toda a composição em si está excelente.Gosto das duas versão da foto.
Fica bem,

Hi, Luci! Ahhh, someone else who is enjoying the beautiful Autumn colors! I looked at the workshop, and I think I like this version better, because it does emphasize the colors, and the best part of Autumn is its colors! (in my opinion) But...you've got two nice pictures, regardless.

This is delightful! Thanks!

Gayle :)


Beautiful one...

Salut Luciana,

Jolie photo de fin d'automne! Jolie PP aussi.
I prefer the PP (this one) for its colours and as what you mentioned, the water. It is indeed a nice addition to the compo. Bravo!

I've also shared a photo which I called "Goodbye Autumn". You can have a look if you are interested :)

Olá Luciana !
Olha, nem sei o que te diga, fiquei com cara de parvo a olhar para este trabalho...
Só te consigo dizer que isto é arte !
Um abraço,

What a colorful image.
I like the meshing of colors and the green made by the algea below the water. This is a nice looking abstract. I LOVE autumn!

C'est la photographie de l'automne 2005 …
Toutes mes félicitations, Luciana …

Wonderful Lucia such rich colours. TFS.

A VERY VERY VERY UNUSUAL SHOT VERY VERY VERY WELL Shot and WONDERFULLY Executed in case of PP... GREAT ONE!!! Thanks for sharing this Luci.. :D...


it's hard to say what version I preffer, may be the second version in WS, because colours are well active but water is more visible....
In any case I like all the two verions a lot

This is a symphony more than a "chanson" ;)
A triumph of colors.



Love the surreal quality of this shot Luci. The colours are magnificient and magical. Love it. By the way I think I prefer the actual image to your altered one. TFS, Paul.

Isto é "divino"... até muito difícil de se "críticar" ou comentar...!!!!
Uma obra de arte....!!!
Você tem isso no "sangue" ou/no DNA... continue porque sempre será um grande prazer para nós "pobres mortais"... He... He...

I actually prefer the subtle tones of the workshop version although I can very much appreciate what you were aiming to achieve with this one. Both versions look a little oversharpened because of the amount of white dots that appear. Some will of course be caused by the sparkle of the water but if you look at the rock on the right, the green foliage and the veins on the leaves I think you can definitely see a quality problem. With the original this should be quick and easy to correct. Thank you for drawing my attention to your lovely portfolio.

All the best,

Olá Luciana,
Uma foto outonal, em todo o seu explendor de cores, luz e motivos.
Um abraço,

Hi Luciana, you are just an artistic person, this shot is so simple and yet so beautiful, i like the saturated version as well as the other one, they are different but in mood not in quality. i think there is real wonder of life in them
take care

Hi Luci, and this is one great macro, different from the one I just commented on. Great colours and Smart Blur I guess, I think it makes it special!

Great work. Cheers, Yan :)

Une tres belle chanson d'automne Luci, une symphonie de couleurs! Super bien pris, couleurs et details sont impressionnants.

Very, very nice indeed. It is a surrealistic image of Autumn that I like very much.

Très créateur.


the most amazing photo to emerge from a thumnail which just looks like a mix of georgeous paints. Love the colour and detail. dont know if you used a polariser, but it could have cut down the brightness of reflection in the water. Such a shame i dont live anywhere near any waterfalls this autumn.

I love this sort of miniature landscape shot, and took some very similar (tho not as successful) last year (perhaps I'll upload one). Lovely colours and crisp/blurred contrast.

Les couleurs sont superbes ! Belle image, bravo.

Beautiful image, Luci! Wonderful colors, almost unreal. Well chosen low POV allowing to capture the leaves in the foreground. Nice, velvety effect in cascading water and great DOF thanks to long exposure time. Congratulations,

oh, Luci, I saw your gallery, it was so hard for me to pick one picture to write about, so I just decided to pick your whole gallery:)) you are a real artist! I love all your work!


Luci, this is a stunning work of art. I keep on looking and looking at this photo to make sure I'm not missing out on any beauty. those orange-red autumn leaves and the brown ones and the moss in the corner.. Fantastic work. tfs

Hi, Lucy!
Your abstraction is a marvel! You have posted it before my membership to TL and now I am glad to have discovered it. I am so inspired by your autumn colors even now - in spring, that I decided to make an abstraction workshop of this abstractuon. I'll be glad, if you like it...

Maginifique !
Et ce n'est pas la seule de tes ouvres que je qualifirai de cet adjectif.
Tu fais partie d'emblée de mes favoris !

Hi Luciana,
I am not sure whether I am alive and not in Heaven!!
Colors are expressing themselves vividly. The hue, the tone and the saturation par excillence.
I wonder where was I before!!
Greetings from India,

Esta fotorafia mais parece uma pintura, tal é a diversidade de côres que conseguiste captar.
Os ingleses usam uma expressão que creio fazer-lhe justiça: Breathtaking!
