went up to Gold Creek Pond, just the other side of Snoqualmie Pass - about 45 minutes from home - to see if i could get some decent shots. not as much color in the trees as i'd have liked (too many evergreens, not enough hardwoods!), but it was a gorgeous day nonetheless, and after 2 weeks of gray weather, i was glad just to get out in the sunshine! taken with 30D and 40D, Tamron SP17-35 and SP24-135 lenses...

Great shots Rocky. The last one with the 30d. Seems to have more "pop" than the 40d. Maybe you processed differently?.....cheers...Don

These beautiful sights of the fall afternoonwith vibrant colours are soorelieving

I especially liked the transitionfrom a magical sightof thedept of the waterto the reflectionof the sky and then to that of the mountainsalltogether leading you tothe distant snowy mountain in your first pic, as well as thecrispnessof thelayersranging from gold toemeraldand blue in # 3...

Great photos, Squirl033!

This certainly DOES look far away from the city... though 45 minutes from your home isn't too bad (not too far to travel I mean for such a magnificent view!)

I also appreciate the qualities that Bahadir mentioned (above) in photo 1, though I also think in the end that number 3 is my favourite of this series of yours. I agree with Don that photo 3 seems to have a bit more pop (maybe contrast) - and I'm also curious is it a result of camera settings (30D vs 40D?) or post processing? Or was it just a different quality of light?

For me the blend of 3 primary colours (yellow / green and red) at the right of photo 3 really set it off well!! Great!

Thanks for sharing!

Paul

Yes I would say definite eye candy. That is one perfect reflection as seen by this slight alteration of your pic.

thanks, guys...

i noticed the same thing about #3 seeming to "pop" a bit more. mostly it's due to lighting (#3 was taken later in the day than the other two, just before the sun set)and processing (i punched up the contrast a bit more), but also because the 30D metering tends tobe a bit underexposed, while the 40D is more "dead on". personally i tend to prefer the slight under exposure of the 30D... i think i'll experiment with the exposure compensation to see if i can make the 40D duplicate that.
