4th place
Changing Colors of Autumn by espinosa6pack

billyoneshot: Just wanted you to know that I seen you capture in the vb and gave it a 10. It is the best I have seen in a long time. I love the lighting and the colors are brilliant.

purmusic: Very nicely composed image.

Going to be bold here, you ready?

I am going to guess that you were dealing with a somewhat problematic sky here. As in, possibly over-exposed.

If so, some creative food for thought for you on the note of exposure:

"Exposure - Film and light record image"



/\ Kidding a bit in the above.

Mind you, there are a myriad of ways and image editing tutorials on the 'how to stuff'.

You've balanced out the blues in the sky with their counterpart; reflections on the water ... well. (Compositionally speaking, that is.)

What has seemed to happen is that by uppingthe colour saturation ... some details are lost.

So, my counsel/advice (friendly) here, would be to dial that back some.

However, and with that said?

Artisitic licence taken? Of course, I can respect that.


5th place
Burnished Bark by Silvanus

marcaribe: The sun shinning the tree makes it gleam like copper...very creative!

Roseman_Stan: Looks like a work of art being formed out of copper to me. Neat!

luckyshot: Steve - A cool effect - a good eye to see it, a skillful capture. Thad
