i really like this composition, Patrice. the leaves seem a bit oversaturated, but other than that, this is a lovely shot!

Thanks so much for featuring one of my images today, KK, much appreciated. Thanks so much too Melinda, Winston & Ronnie for your much appreciated comments. I just checked my editing notes for this image and actually, there was no saturation applied...just darkened with the addition of contrast & sharpened. F8 & 1/13 second shutter speed. Sometimes one can find leaves with unusually bright colors such as these are. In attempting to saturate falls leaves in a comp such as this one, I surprisingly found

(cont') that it can blow out some of the colors...especially affecting the yellows and the greens so therefore, it was avoided.

WONDERFUL fall image, Pat. I always get a little sad when summer ends and it gets colder and colder. But images like yours brightens my day. The colors are so beautiful! I love the composition and the combination of calm beauty of the rock and leaves and at the same time the flow and the fast movement of the water. The flow of life - and you captured it so beautifully. Big congrats on this terrific win.

The soft flow of the water with the rich selection of colorful leaves resting on the rocks present an amazing work of art! The tones throughout are very lovely and the clarity and beautiful lighting really brings out the details of the beautiful leaves! Congratulations on an excellent win today, Pat!

Great fall shot Pat.

Lovely image, Patrice. The rushing water frames your focal point so nicely and the colour and texture of the wet rocks do such a good job of highlighting the leaves. Excellent POTD!
Joyce Webley commented on September 21, 2008 16:41:
I love the way the color is above and below the water, Patrice! The texture of the water is beautiful. And you're right about fall leaves - they already have their own beautiful, rich colors! Congratulations!
