Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: October Free Study (Advanced Editing II)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
Location: Falkirk
Date: Oct 26, 2004
Aperture: f4
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/25
Galleries: Landscape, Nature
Date Uploaded: Oct 29, 2004

Image cropped and resized.
adjustments to contrast,sharpness & saturation.
Image softened slightly using "Neat image".
A little dodging and burning applied.

I`m expecting a little "Flak" for using the horizontal "thirds" composition that annoyed some people when I tried it in the "Masters" challenge..but sometimes I prefer it to the conventional front to back "pathway in" approach.
I look at it as taking an interesting "slice" out of the landscape for viewing.

IMHO This is a tad bit oversaturated. This is my taste only and have a feeling that this will do very well in the challenge if I know voting trends at all. Not saying this is a bad thing, just a thing...

This feels a bit over-Neat-Imaged, and the highlights are bright enough to distract from the beautiful foreground. Great composition - just needed a grad ND filter to make it come together.

Lovely colors. Has a nice otherworldy type of feel to it.

Excellent soft treatment image for this image. I hope you didn't get too many "too soft" or "out of focus" comments.

This is stunning. I love the smooth look of the trunk against the textured leaves... really some great contrast. Wonderful composition, too. 9

Very well done here. Like the pushing of he light to achieve the effect very much, for all there will probably be those who gripe about burnt-out areas - ignore them. This is just an excellent photo.

Very beautiful composition. Great colours. It is a tiny bit overexposed (especially at the upper right), as you are starting to get some purple fringe in contrasting darker areas. The red leaves are great colour compliment to the green trees. The reflection is magical.

When the challenge is over I'd like for you to reveal your post processing technique -- I really like it! It reminds me a little of Virtual Photographer's ambience filter. Beautiful colors and focus.

Great colors, I'm only not to shure about the dreamy look...

Impressionistic?

Great color and it looks like you had a perfect setting for a great reflection. I like the processing effect you used... would love to know what it is. It gives a soft, almost painted look.

I like the contrasting colors here. Did you soften it? It looks great, like a fantasy forest...

Wow! these colors are awesome! Good job of framing.

The colors in this are stunning and the somewhat soft focus of the tree limbs adds a mystique and aura to this scene. Well done.

What a beautiful scene! Like a fairy tale. Stunning shot. 10+
I especially like the contrast between the intensity of the read leaves and the whispy green of the leaves still on the trees.

Looks like painting, and I mean that in a good way. Would look good in a frame up on someones wall I am sure.

Gorgeous! Fabulous colors! I love the 'glow' feeling of the image. The best so far.

The contrasting colors are excellent. The light just seems a little to bright at the top of the photo.
