The second picture has so lovely colours. I tried a portrait orientation as an alternative, emphasising on the diagonal

Yes, that seems to be a better composition. I just liked the leaves so much, I left them in the picture.

Great picture capturing the essential pair, life and death. You have the orange, acting vigourously to help the plant to spread it's seeds. You have the light brown leaf.

No life without death. Climax can be called the "Little Death". If you are not ready to die you are not fit to give new life. Life builds upon death. Spring presupposes fall

Hope I didn't put it too raw. Linné could have formulated it something like "the precious seconds of the little death"

Skillfully captured with a pleasing amount of background sharpness

The 5th shot, autumn foliage, is just terrific. The colors are harmonious and the section of the foliage framed is just right. The first time I looked at it, I was like waking up in the morning and enjoying my breakfast by the window, and as I looked up from my plates, I saw the naturegreeting me with ahello. On the whole, a very natural shot... and it is the naturalness that a shot can capture that poses challenges tomany a photographer. A shot that tells something or that hinges viewers is more than a shot by itself, it is a story.
