A seasonal selection of 15 shots from my trip around Saltaire with Barbara Hirst last Wednesday, starting with the lovely Lion that guards one of the gateposts at the entry of Victoria hall. I have chosen him because this image clearly identifies this series as Saltaire. I love the way that the Autumn leaves are framing him and the fact that he is completely un-phased by the fallen leaf nestling in his groin! The weather was rubbish - grey, grim and drizzly - but it was a fascinating afternoon in good company and I got loads of photographs.

The rest of the series is about Autumn foliage and the effects I got by applying various effects to the originals. For the most part I have put the original first then the processed images after it. I confess I rather like the painted effects I got from using Topaz Simplify, but I leave judgement down to you. We are all different and we all like different things, which is what makes this site so interesting.

Anyway, thanks for looking and I hope you like at least some of them.

I've spent a happy few minutes enjoying this autumnal colour and I still can't decide on the Topaz Simplify - I think I'll have to come back to have a look later. But, I loved the whole set of riotous colour!

When I first looked there were 6 versions and then a few moments later 15 so we are spoiled for choice today.
I like V 1 for the reasons you give, then when it comes to the rest I could not pick a winner........the set shows off the richness and beauty of the autumn foliage so well.
So this lot will need to share my single available vote, Lynne.

Wonderful colours and work in this set. Rather taken by V1 and your handsome Lion though! Wonder if instead of a touch of green he's now turning rather blue with cold? Tongue

Wonderful set of images which must have given you
great pleasure to do.
Difficult to choose an outright winner, but I especially liked V6, 8, 9 and 12.
I preferred those without text.
I loved the varied shaded borders.
Is that done with Topaz or can that be done
in Photoshop?
Good work Lynne.

I agree with you Lynne about the site and with us being all different.There is such a variety of images to be seen here and it would be very boring if everyone uploaded just rust for example ? Even I would get bored with that and would probably go out and photograph sheep.OK,perhaps I would not go that far.I suppose seeing leggy blondes everyday would get boring too.Kinda like my macaronni and cheese the wife makes me.I made the mistake of telling her I like it and she would make me it everyday if she got away with it.Mind you,some of the legs I have seen on my blondes have looked like macaronni !!

Beautiful set,Lynne. I quite V1, I like the POV, and colour contrast and clarity are excellent. The rest of the images are different style. 2 to 5+10 are beautifully designed and very artistic; the rest of them are excellently taken, with wonderful color and clarity. I'm also looking forward to seeing more of your Saltaire's images...great work.

I think simplify has worked very well especially on V8.

I sometimes mix a little simplify in to my images, for example the foliage and brickwork in This shot
