I spent part of the afternoon in the park shooting leaves as they floated by in the creek. There was a beautiful reflection of a yellow tree (I didn't even check to see what kind it was). Anyway here is one the pics from that outing.
Cheers,
Steve

And another that's not half bad. IMHO

What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! The hues in the water are lovely!

I like the second shot but the first shot does nothing for me. The dark leaf against the dark water doesn't have much to say.

I like them both. What was causing the ripples in the first one?

Thanks, I'm not sure. I saw the ripples but could never really see what was causing them. I suspect it was small insects hitting the water. I sure liked the effect though.

After exchanging private messages with Steve, I determined that his images are displaying much darker than they should on my monitors while everyone elses photos look fine. I am going to work with Steve and see if we can figure out what is going on.

When I load the first image into Paint Shop Pro X, and run the auto contrast tool, I get a very bright image with definite reflections of the yellow leaves overhead and the somewhat dark leaves floating in the water.

I apologize if I came accross harshly. I called it as I initially saw it. However, now I know (on my monitors, at least) there is a great photo there begging to get out!

Thanks Cal, but no apology necessary. I knew that there was something going on because the images were not that dark and drab on my monitor. In fact, the opposite seems to be the case. My new computer has an incredibility bright 20" monitor which is showing my photos after processing as brighter than they probably really are. I will be working on that.:G

Cheers all,
Steve
