It should be the most pleasurable stroll in a locationnature and history areenhanced by thebeautifulcolurs of autumn, observable in each picture you posted! The leaves in the last image are so eye catching as tocompell oneto call this season'Fall' only : ) Btw, I especiallyfound the composition in #2 attractive!

V nice series Gary:-), my personal choice is #4 the carpet of leaves is almost perfect .perhaps a little more DOF would,IMO,have been better!. but looking at the EXIF it seems you where struggling for light at that ISO :sad:, Kind regards Graham

Hello Gary,

Nice series! Definitely autumn feel about it...

All the photos have special qualities, e.g. the arch reflection in photo 1, sky/cloud reflection in 2, "togetherness" feel of photo 3 and great autumn leaf colours on ground in photo 4.

I feel photo one is cropped a bit tight at the top (but you might have been at the widest setting already)... plus maybe too much bright sky would off set the balance.

I also love the composition of photo 2 including the way the leaves are in the water!

Maybe your signature / logo are a bit too intrustive... just imho.

Thanks for sharing!

thanks for comments :-)

wanted to focus the atension on the canal and arch of the viaduct

unfortunatly with people using other peoples shots as there own i feel the need now to puta mark on the images as i like to show them quite big.

hope to get back this weekend and shoot some more



Gary

How sad people pinching other peoples pictures, they must be very small minded.

Anyway I absolutely love pic 1, theres so much beauty about it and the colours contrast really well, i love how soft the reflection of the verge in the canal is and also you've lead into the arch really well it almost makes a picture itself of whats beyond that arch, 5* for me and the others aren't bad either

Regards Dale
