    Managed to get out to Ashridge Forest in Herts for a couple of hours today to get some autumn colours before it's all gone. This is what I got.

    #2 is magical. The whole series is so brilliantly colourful. A pleasant contrast to our local grey and white and brown sceme.

    All are great!

    (a side question: how do you manage to get such colors? post-editing?)

    Sorry, when I first looked at this thread, I totally fainted upon viewing your Photos 2 and 3 here and could only just breathe a

    "WOW"

    before I was "gone" ... but that word (if it is one) did come from my heart! :heart:
    Honest!

    For 2 and 3 are just such KILLER-photos!

    Hahah LaFoto, you do make me laugh :mrgreen: :blushing: Thanks a lot :hugs:

    mitake, I try to get it as near as the final image as I can in camera and finish off in PS (I used to be real lazy and snap away without thinking much about the camera settings assuming I can fix it all in editing, but it pays to get as much right as you can in camera). A lot of the colour comes from setting the 'correct' white balance. I use a Polarizer and 'chrome' setting on the the camera (adds saturation). I didn't want any cool looking shadows (I was getting them at first) so I put a grey card in a shadow area and set the white balance on that. This gave a really warm colour balance, somewhere around 8500k but it suited the pics well. Then in PS I used an orange Photo Filter and a small bump to colour saturation.

    Thanks a lot for your great comments, I appreciate them :D
