...the clue is in the title, the point of focus is on the branches and the colour is behind and slightly soft, as intended.
I continue to learn how to handle this wonderful little gem.

Such delicate beauty. It always surprises me how something so tough can appear almost fragile.

Autumn is my favourite season and the colours don't disappoint. I hadn't twigged (Wink) you had a new camera. Must look up the reviews.

Very nice Dougie. Most of the leaves gone here too - at least they are now covering the ground in my garden - a lot of sweeping up needed.

Lovely yellows/golds over the blue of the water. Moira

The light and colour in the last few remaining leaves makes for a beautiful uplifting contrast against the cold blue waters Dougie...

That's some sensor size in what so many sites describe as a brick of a camera, Dougie: hope you have great fun with it and great results such as this.......an image that many would pass by and not consider for a shot.

The little gem is already serving you well, Dougie, and no doubt sparing your back too. A delightful capture of the light.

Like this a lot, and the sliver of dark bank at the top adds a lot. A sort of reverse sky effect.

Well handled this one Dougie.
And your admission that you continue to learn.
dispels the myth,''you can't teach an old dog new tricks'' !!

A brilliant sensor wrapped in a dog of a camera is the verdict I've heard. Still, if it gets the results you want...

Julian it's different and difficult and delightful when the results come as you expected.

Interesting that you have a Sony! Seems to handle well Dougie - my only critique is to suggest the top of the picture could be cropped out and not spoil the picture you have captured

46 Megapixel??? Wow - Unbelivable what's possible these days.
Superb image, like the little golden leaves on the almost bare branches. And the rippled water makes a fine bg.
