I really liked the reflection of colors in the creek. I was shooting towards the setting sun so the sky is a little blown out. But I wanted the forground color so that's the price.

Very nice, Steve.

I do need to try what dcg0317 is talking about. I was reading up yesterday on that and panoramic shots. Sounded like something interesting to try.

That is absolutely beautiful, Steve. Good work.

What are we going to do when all the beautiful leaves are gone? It's obvious. We are going to go take photos of other things like snow and Holiday decorations. By the way, Santa is coming early this year. He was due to arrive at the local mall either yesterday or today.

Thank you everyone.

Cal, leaves? We don't need no stinkin' leaves! Color is everywhere and the good folks on this forum have no problems finding it.

Forget the sky the colors are worth it, love the reflected colors.

Yes, Steve's shot is like putting autumnal leafy context around the detail of your 'fall painting' of reflections of a few days ago.

To my eye, this particular shot is pretty great just as it is, anyway! But if Steve wanted to try that combination without too much trouble...

I'm currently trying out the free "basic" (!!) software (from http://www.hdrsoft.com/) to do exactly that sort of merge automatically on two frames of my own, and it looks very promising. Unfortunately, I hand-held the pair of bracketed shots I have in mind and rotated the camera very, very slightly, but a little too much for its moving-object correction.

With only two days left in this 'Challenge', my deadline is 'challenging'. That'll teach me to use a tripod.
