Dear All,

An autumn shot showing the scales of the beautiful trees against the fallen colorful leaves. I feel it gives a wonderful feeling when looking at such a lively scene, don't you think so?

The very last colors of the season and I tried to capture the emotion of a giant tree having a great hold on the ground with its large foot of "wood".
My humble entry to Friday's theme :)

The light was quite nice, not optimum fr the best exposure but I like the rust-colored tones of the leaves fallen and lying in peace on the ground.

Have a nice weekend!

Kind regards,



ISO=360, Focal length=70 mm, cropped, added black border and finally resized the picture for TL.

That is one solid tree Paras, the grey trunk contrasts well with the warm autumn colours.
Have a nice weekend,

A very imposing tree with good tones and textures. Pleasing colours of the leaves in the foreground and background. The tree is sharp and the leaves in the bavkground have a pleasing soft focus.
Not a photo opportunity that jumps out, so well seen.

Hi Paras,

The point of view is showing the details and colors of the trees and of the leaves. The distance between the trees is giving depth to the composition. A good contribution to the Friday's theme, have a nice day.

Hi Paras.

Yes, they do look like toes, the surrounding fallen leaves are the show stopper for me, they make such an attractive copper carpet, memories flood back of running through as a kid making that rustling noise as you went. Perfect clarity of detail and texturtes tfs

This is a huge tree! I like your pov and it has good dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Paras,
Another lovely Fall photo. This looks like a dinosaurs foot. A good composition where you are not trying to show the whole tree.

Hi Paras,
Besides showing this huge tree, you are showing a splendid golden carpet made of fallen Autumn foliage. Very good light management and the low POV is helping this stunning presentation. Very neat work.
