Babcock State Park

28-105mm lens with neutral density 8 filter.

Cropped and levels applied.

Unfortunately due to aging, the fading boards surrounding the mill and above the wheel distantly look like motion blur. Hopefully this may change by next year.

This is beautiful! I can't belive this scored where it did, should've ribboned in my opinion. Put some brush strokes to it and you have a Thomas Kinkaide painting. Really nice!

Wow! Great landscape! The only thing I'd like is to see a more dramatic light. Perhaps slight rays throgh morning fog, etc. I wouldn't change anything in terms of composition otherwise though - very nice.

I love this photo with its great autumn colors and I love the slow shutter creating the smooth water flow. The lighting is good and I love the shadows under the rocks. The only thing that distracts me is the wheel and its components seems to be blur on top but not enough to keep this from being a great shot.

Nice, if it was the only photo of colored leafes in the challenge it would be even better but there are so many.
It's a nice picture but after the 20th the wow factor is gone (not your fault)
Good luck.

This is such a beautiful picture. It looks like a Curier & Ives painting. It couldn't be more perfect. 10

reminds me of a New England postcard. I want to say a bit unsaturated cuz I like brilliant fall colors, but the levels are perfect with the old mill behind. Can't wait to find out where this is....

This may be THE winner. I will probably buy this print if it goes on sale. I only see positive things here. A (10)

An idyllic scene, good composition and color, lighting was perfect for you, and I love what you did with the falls. 9

This is an absolutely beautiful composition. I would have bumped up the color a bit more, but this is a very stunning more realistic approach. 9.

Wow ! Whats not to like. Only thing missing is an attached ribbon, which it may soon have. Beautiful feast for my eyes. -10-

Postcard shot. Well done. For my tastes you have turned up the saturation a wee bit more.
