Default Colors of the season - Autumm

I'm a bit unsure about this one. Like the colors of course, but finding a good composition is not easy.

Should i crop or should I not, that is the question....

The colors and lighting are very nice. There appears to be no primary subject though. You might try just to focus on one tree.

Of course, that's what it lacks, a primary subject!!

Really on of the most basic requirements of photography...

But that's just what happens sometimes - like in this instance, I was so preoccupied by getting all the different colors and composing the shot so that I'd catch all in one shot that I forgot about primary motive.

Thank you Mugmar, for taking the time to point me into the right direction. It's so easy to get blinded by ones preoccupation.

How about this for a crop, it brings the pink tree into more of a subject, and there is nothing superfluous, just a shame there is the little plant in front.

I would do it a bit differently, but only vertical crops seem to work.

Default How's this one then...?

Mark1616 and Chato!

Thank you for trying "mission impossible" - I have given up on this shot - its too busy with all these leafs and all the different bushes. Insted of croping, I just went and got another shot this morning. I'm walking past this garden every day anyway, when I walk my dog.

This time i took Mugmar's advise of a 'primary subject' and made the hause the subject, and we can still see the beautiful autumm-colors.

Hows this one then...?
Acceptable?

Walter S, That's not a bad shot. The colors accent the house. Just wondering though, is that the "cable to nowhere" on the side of the house?

10 points for you for spotting it, Mugmar!
Well done...and thanks for the comment!



Sharp eyes as you have, you have probably spottet the frost on the green lawn as well - it was rather early and we had a clear night.

Regards!
