Interesting and beautiful, too. I agree with those who thought it should not be cropped on the left. Helps orient the viewer.

Someone suggested adding contrast to my photo. I did so and posted the revision at my website: http://www.srayphoto.com/. It DOES look better.

#6. "Japanese Maple Tree"
In response to Reply # 0


Salem, US
          

Hi Folks:

I posted this in the forum before I realized that there was the October Challenge going on. Here's a Japanese Maple at the Portland, OR Japanese Garden:

http://www.willamette.edu/~ncordova/pix/mapley.jpg

EXIF: Nikon D40, ISO 200, 1/13, f/13, 18mm, No Flash, Manual mode, RAW, with Kit Lens (18-55mm), Spot Metering (focused on the tree trunk which was the darkest part), using a Manfrotto tripod.

No filters, white balance was set to Cloudy (I wanted warmth), some post-processing done in Adobe Photoshop CS3. With so many photographers that day at the Garden moving about taking the classic shots, I decided to scoop under part of the canopy, set my tripod down low and frame the shot that way. I'll try to post some other ones later.

Thanks,

Scampi

What a gorgeous photo! That unusual tree makes for a very interesting composition. I like the shadows on the ground, too. Nice work!

I also appreciate the haiku by Basho in your post.

#9. "Falling Water"
In response to Reply # 0


Salem, US
          

Hi Folks:

Thanks for the kind comments. Here's another one from the Japanese Garden trip. I didn't think this one would come out well. I did not have a set of neutral density filters, and I thought the D40 with the kit lens would not yield a great shot here. I ended up truly surprised, but gladly so:

http://www.willamette.edu/~ncordova/pix/waterfalling.jpg

EXIF: Nikon D40, ISO 200, Manual, 1 sec., f/22, 55mm, No Flash, with Kit Lens (18-55mm), WB: Cloudy, No Filters, Mounted on Tripod.

Thanks,

Scampi

Thank you for the kind words, but I am certainly not a pro. I mostly got very lucky. And most of the time that is a cause for wonder. So no, no pro here, but I tell you what helped me make the shots the best I could: the fact that the Garden was packed with photographers with the latest and greatest equipment! I was standing with my wimpy tripod, and simple camera with kit lens, and a little bag to carry it in. I also had a discount grocery store plastic bag to shield the camera from any stray raindrops. Next to me where folks with truly cool equipment, huge lenses, fancy backpacks with all sort of gear, and the required photographic vest. I was a bit intimidated at first, but then figured I want to have fun and take great shots with whatever I have. So, I dropped my lens cap, tripped over my tripod, crossed my fingers, and spent a long time trying to do the best I could. : )

Thanks again for the kind words,

NK

Even though, by your own admission, you're not a pro, I'll wager you got as good a shot, or an even better shot, than some of those photographers with their top-of-the-line gear. You have the "eye," and that counts for a lot.

I, too, have felt intimidated by other photographers who have the greatest gear and seem to know way more than I do (simply by virtue of all that gear). You sure had the right attitude, though, when you said, "...I want to have fun and take great shots with whatever I have."

It wasn't just luck that turned your photos into such beautiful, inspiring, (dare I say "magical"), and memorable compositions.

I think of them Visible Haiku.

Oh, spooky! Especially with the fog and that sawed-off stump with those roots that look almost like legs. Nice detail, too.

D40(on tripod), 18-55mm kit lens at 55mm, 1/5 Sec, F-9, ISO 200 WB Auto

Took this at the Paine Art Center and Gardens where I work as a gardener. A number of vines have grown all over the side of our old tool garage. There's a couple different varieties of vines here in a variety of colors.

#23. "Leaf Suspended"
In response to Reply # 0


Salem, US
          

Hey Folks:

A quick shot taken as I was walking home from work. The leaf suspended on that thin filament of a spider web caught my eye, and I just had to try to take it.

http://ncordova.smugmug.com/photos/212189066-M.jpg

EXIF: Nikon D40, ISO 200, 1/640, f/4.5, 70mm, No Flash, Handheld (18-70mm lens)

White Balance was set to Cloudy. I like warmth!

I must admit I like the background very much. Perhaps not the greatest bokeh, but I love the colors and they fit my Autumn "likes" very well.

Best Regards,

S

What a beautiful tree portrait (what kind of tree is it?). It's great to see fall colors from different parts of our planet.

I like the way the path (or what appears to be a path) leads toward the building in the background. And the colorful tree in the background sets everything off nicely.

Thank you Suzy Raymer. This tree it’s a Platano tree (Platanus - Platanaceae´s family - whose leaf is the symbol of Canada).

This photo was taken in the city park close to the sea, and there we can find part of the ancient rural zone of our city, that is well known by its Oporto Wine.

#29. "Tree silhouette"
In response to Reply # 0

Here's something a little different from most of the photos posted so far. Not very many leaves or colors but I like it. Took it while laying on my back at the park this afternoon. I don't know if this is a sign that my pictures suck but they never look quite as good when they're resized to fit into the windows. They look much nicer when you click on the image to magnify it.

Focal length 18mm, 1/400, f/8, ISO 200, WB Sunny

Can somebody tell me how to post photos directly in my post? I just became a Silver Member but I can't seem to figure it out. Using the Attachment thing underneath the message box just gives me an error.

Nice shot! Those spooky black tree limbs reaching out give it a Halloween feel. I also like that one red leaf near the top-right section of the photo.

Re posting a photo, did your click the link "Click here to choose your file" below the Attachment box? That has worked for me.

Thank you very much for the comments/compliment. I don't know what it is but there's something I really like about leaf-less tree silhouettes. I've taken a number of landscape shots that feature them as well.

Hi, all.

Here's the first of my entries, with most of them taken in the National Wildlife Refuge in Sudbury, MA.

I could not find a single red tree in the entire place, save for a few that had started to turn, only slightly. I figure this yellow shot is a fair compromise.

Hi, all.

Here's the next of my entries, with all of them taken in the National Wildlife Refuge in Sudbury, MA.

A nice canopy shot of some trees that had not yet started to turn, ringed by those that had. It was at this point that a buzzing cell phone startled me into thinking I was being attacked by giant insects, and as I dashed away from the spot, I stumbled into two teenagers who had stealthed into the woods to make out.

No, I did not get a picture of that.

In response to Reply # 0


Salem, US
          

Well folks, one last image. Just some leaves I saw today:

http://ncordova.smugmug.com/photos/215705949-M.jpg

EXIF: Nikon D40, ISO 200, f/4.5, 1/125, 50mm, No Flash, Handheld, White Balance set to "Cloudy."

Leaves, like flowers are a pretty popular subject and many folks deride those shots because it often seems that there are tons of those shots (leaves, flowers, dogs). However, leaves are such fantastic subjects, with great shapes, colors, textures, patterns, etc. I enjoy taking these shots, and it makes me look deeply at leaves in Autumn, which is just my favorite season.

Enjoy,

Scampi

"Autumn Blaze"


Gaylord, US
          

***
I posted this at 2 other forums today before seeing this challenge, so thought I post it here, too.

I shot it yesterday with my D40.

Specs: Program mode, RAW, f/5.6, 1/80, ISO 200, WB Auto, at 55mm with my 18-55 kit lens.

I cropped out distracting elements (kept the crop ratio same as original), then smart-sharpened it a bit, added a touch of the Accented Edges filter and a little of the Film Grain filter.

Here's the result:

Those yellows are so cheerful. I like the out-of-focus foreground leaves against the in-focus tree and ledge in the background. The river adds a nice touch, too.

Nikon D50, 10.5mm DX fisheye, 1/100s, f/16, Auto WB

I accidently forgot to put my camera back to ISO200 from ISO800 when I shot this. Fortunately the D50 is very clean at higher ISOs, so no big deal. To post this image, I had to compress it severely which doesn't do the original with all its fine detail justice, but I hope the feel of the image still translates.

D50 w. 70-300G at 180mm, f/7.1, 1/500s, AWB, ISO800

I accidently forgot to reset the ISO value back to 200 with this image but fortunately the D50 produces very good, saturated images with low noise, even at higher ISOs.

More Red Oak Leaves

D50 w. 70-300G @ 170mm, f/10.0, 1/640s, ISO800*

Like my previous posting in this thread, this one was shot at too high an ISO rate after forgetting to reset my camera back to its base ISO value or ISO400. Still, there's virtually no noise, and colors are still vividly saturated.

"Little waterfall with leaves"


Billings, US
          

Four days of 25-40mph winds have just about stripped all the leaves off the trees. I found this spot last week when testing my new F4 and went back today. The color is about all gone, but this little waterfall was still there with some leaves on the rock.

What a beautiful shot. I like the shadows made by other leaves (one looks like a witch with a very long nose). Dazzling colors, too. An excellent choice for one's first post.

That shadow kind of looks like a pumpkin face. And I like the rich pumpkin-orange color of the leaves.

I didn't think of that when I was setting up the shot. I could have altered the leaf with my Leatherman Micra

"RE:"


Poplar Bluff, US
          

I've been waiting for some fall color here in southern Missouri but nothing has begun to change. I guess I'll have to use something from last year. I suspect putting this is so late in the month there will not be time for anyone to see it or comment, but here goes anyway...

D-50, Nikkor 50mm/f1.8, ISO 200, f/8 at 1/200, hand held (didn't have a decent tripod at the time) Post processing by Elements 5.0. I had a terrible time getting a decent size that was still be low 100kb.

Love people and use things.

This was taken last year too. I don't know why I particularly like the feeling of this picture... What do you think?

D-50, Nikkor 18-70mm, f/3.5-4.5, shot at 22mm, ISO 200, f/11 at 1/25, Old, awkward, but stable tripod.

Vancouver, CA
          

Here's a last minute entry.

I grabbed this picture the other day, I found the shape (and colour) of the trees quite interesting. Light was not really with me, but that's to be expected, it's fall in Vancouver after all.

Details:
Hand Held
ISO 200
RAW
f/4.2 @ 1/20s
kit 18-55 @ 26mm

The only post processing I did was to correct the about 2 degrees of tilt. Let me know what you think.
