    I took these a little over a month ago.. right before the leaves completely changed. Not the best lighting... but I tried. I also attempted water shots, I know they ended up just a bit blurry. All C&C welcome.

    Nice work, great photos. I think #7 may be my favorite of the bunch.

    Hi,

    the red leaves in those trees really stand out - are they naturally as vibrant or have you added some saturation in PP ?

    Number 6 is great if you let the bottom cluster of red-leaf trees dominate more. Lower the vantage point.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Simon... I messed with the levels a bit in PS, just to make the colors a little more vibrant because of the poor lighting.

    Oh, they do look autumnal all right! Wow. The colour of those leaves!!! Here we have only few trees that turn this red! Several that become yellow, and many that go from green to brown, but this red is really special!

    I like Photo 4 as it is. It is good. A very pleasing scene!

    If Photo 1 had been mine, I'd have considered a crop right to the tip of the tree on the left slope, and if Photo 5 had been mine, I might have tried a crop that would have totally excluded the sky to create a "horizon-less" photo with only the colour of that red tree dominating the composition, against an otherwise mainly darker background. (You would need to crop off the three leaves at the very top, but it then does not look unnatural, I tested it by doing the "scroll-cropping" on my screen here ;)).

    Photos 6 and 7 area also beautiful as they are!
