View of the Hudson River from the Rockefeller Estate. Caught the last weekend that the estate is open for the season, and was blessed with beautiful foliage and perfect weather.

Thank you for your kind comments! I'm new to digital photography and don't know how to play with the photos, so all I knew how to do was increase the saturation a little bit to make the colors a little brighter.

For those who are interested, I went to Kykuit, the Rockefeller Mansion, in Sleepy Hollow, which is open to tours from late June-early November. They have a beautiful garden overlooking the Hudson.

Unfortunately, as misterjosh mentioned, it was a very hazy day, and I was unable to get any good shots of the Hudson. =( oh well. I'll try all your recommendations next time I'm out on a hazy day! Thanks again!!! Hopefully I'll be able to take more pics and keep submitting them so that I can become SOMEwhere near all of you!!! =)

Like with my Hudson Valley photos from this same weekend, the haze unfortunately mutes the colors and washes out the horizon... Oh well, at least we got a wonderful 65 degree day in November, right? :)

lovely colors but looks oversharpened, it's a shame!

You have beautiful fall colors and a beautiful setting. The use of a ND gradient filter might have allowed you to keep more detail in the river and fog beyond.

ahh, the sky is dead.... looks like a hazy day, which of course is really difficult to shoot well. the best trick I know is to use Exposure Compensation at about -2 and then push the exposure in photoshop.
