Oops, can't compare lenses if the subject is different. Here are my oak tree shots with the 50mm this morning. I believe they were shot at f8.

Against a gray sky:



Silhouette:


Out on a limb:


Just leaves:


Maybe it is just my old eyes but I can see a difference even in these severely resized examples. To me there is a "life" in the 50mm shots that is merely hinted at by the zoom, (and the Sigma 24-135mm is not a bad lens optically, the only issues with this lens has been electronic and mechanical [zoom creep]).

Ok so this is a little self indulgent but I couldn't resist a couple of black and white shots:







This is the end now, promise, well... maybe.

I prefer to use back light to highlight the colours. although the leaves haven't quite turned enough her in the sunny south of the UK.

And on a slightly different note, these blackberries show the various stages to ripeness

Looking a lot like autumn. Strange thing is we are seeing some of it down here in Georgia. Ours is likely due to the dry weather we had during the summer. Some trees are already showing some color, but I suspect we will not have a colorful fall due to the early dropping of leaves. Sure hope I'm wrong.

The oak leaves are beginning to change


Sad that summer is ending but the great colour show that is autumn will help to soften the blow of winter


I will sorely miss those long summer nights, but the forests will shine with the autumn flame


Post your autumn colours here and please feel free to comment



All photos in this posting were shot with the Sigma 24-135mm f2.8-4.5. When I get the opportunity I will take the Pentax-M 50mm f1.7 and try some more srtistic shots.

Enjoy

Ira

Yes, it so sorry that the Sun is going to share its light with us less- but the colors of the approaching fall are magnificent- lucky us with 20 degree Celsius weather here now (very rare)- but have already seen some early signs of approaching winter:

Thanks ya'll for sharing all of the autumn leave pics. I was only a kid when my family moved from New England (Northeastern corner of the USA) but I still miss the change of seasons. In another month I hope to finally turn off the air conditioning and be able to go outside without breaking a sweat. Please keep them coming.
