"An Autumnal Study"

By RonnieAG
I rather liked the way these beech leaves were growing through this wooden fence. I feel that selecting a more intimate detail like this can be as effective as the bigger landscape type you go along with this?

My thanks to those who commented on Sunday in the Park.


(PS.....12.27........square crop version as suggested by Dave {WhiteRose1} loaded.......R)

Excellent and beautiful !! I totally agree with you Ronnie - some of the best photos are from carefully selected parts of a whole. Sometimes we just need to place a focus on something small to awaken other people's awareness of the beauty in the detail Smile I just love the interaction of the colour of the leaves with the wood. Superb photo Smile

I agree with you, Ronnie. The fence gives a structure to the hedging as well. Just wondering whether a square crop could be engineered from your composition for a slightly better overall balance.

It seems to me to lack an immediate focus point that grabs my attention. It's not a landscape shot, in the normal sense of the word, so the concept of just having a 'general view of the whole thing' doesn't really apply, or work. I'd like to see something in there that says 'look at me first then look at the rest'. I wanted to do a mod but you have not allowed it. I was going to rotate the shot 180 deg vertical to see if you would notice the difference.

The russet colours of Autumn, really vibrant! The fence is an excellent foil for the mass of colour.

a rich array of autumnal colours Ronnie the and yes i agree that a selective shot can be better and it intoduces better texture love the light in this one also Daves point of a square crop would work as well

Another dreich morning over here on the light side and th postamna brought me yet another Jury duty summons this morning they must be desperate mefinks

Agree with you Ronnie - the wooden fence gives some structure but the colour and shape of the leaves are what the image is about.

A beautifully rustling rustic corner full of the colours of Autumn. Yes I do heartily agree, that closer views are often better than the wide view of life.

I must admit I like this Ronnie.
The close up helps on focus on individual leaves
and all those nuances of colour. The fencing acts as an anchor.

Lovely shot !!!....nice contrast between the plain timber & rich colours in the leaves !!!

Perhaps a touch more contrast might add even more 'zing' ?????
