Saw your image in the newsletter as "photo of the week", and thought it was excellent. It's one of those magic moments that having captured an image of it will stay with you forever. The selective colouring has been well done, and the colours are lovely. It's also very nicely composed. Hope it's printed out and hanging on your wall.

If it's staged Autumnsky, it also deserves some kind of dramatic performance award along the EC.

The "actors"... this farmland scenario... the bike leaving the frame...

All adds up adds up to the farewell feeling.

Very well done indeed!
