Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II
Location: Coppenhagen, Denmark

Simply shot using ambient light, totally inspired by the light and weather of the moment and the rich golds and oranges - thanks to a little bit of luck and warmer than normal temperatures while checking out the Halloween festival in Copenhagen's Tivoli gardens.

Might get shot down for there being no real subject in focus but I hope the shot conveys the wonderful mood of Autumn light and tones which is in itself a subject.

Only Post-editing done: cropped tighter with slight bump up on contrast and saturation.

I was away for this challenge, it would of been one I'd of liked to vote. This one is very nice and I think should of scored much higher. My guess is that it is too subtle in its qualities, not quite in your face like many of the others. I do like how those reeds glow in the light. You also did a fantastic job of handling what could of been a very busy background. I likey!

It looks as if the light frosted the tips of the seedlings.

Nice colors and lighting, the focus on the front stock is a little distracting but the overall color and texture carries the image.
