    Here’s a fun picture a took whilst on holiday in Canada. I wanted to show just how large the leaf was so I borrowed someone’s sneekers with colourful laces. I asked her to frame the leaf and thought it worked fairly well. You should see the tree!

    I like those Peter, the way the veterans face appears in the side of the last one is a nice touch.

    To try the new uploader…

    That is a 1400px image reduced to 650px using the settings presented as you upload.

    I think it’s probably best if you resize the picture to something like 650 pixels on the long side with a ppi of 72 before uploading it. The plug in will resize it if you enter the number of pixels in the dialogue box, but I’m not sure yet if it changes the ppi.

    I like your autumn photographs John. Good warm colours and scenes you can walk into.

    Here’s one I prepared earlier, as they say, to try and show the effect of the wind on a tree in autumn.

    I like that second one very much, Kath. Beautifully exposed against the back lighting, and lovely, sympathetic BW treatment. Ace!

    Agreed. I like the “feel” of No.1 but the main cyclist is a bit blurred and we are given two exits.

    Ian assumes 2 is mono but it is in fact colour, the browns look like sepia toning but there is some green in there. I am a real sucker for backlit subjects. You have the deer pin-sharp, so every hair round the body catches the light, lovely.

    3 has a good variety of autumn colours. I think that’s an oak in the foreground – one of the last common trees to lose its leaves.

    Haha! Probably should be sepia, then! 😉

    Many thanks for sharing these with us Kath. I like all three. I think the letterbox format works well and I like the way the cyclist are riding into the background.
    The deer shot has bags of atmosphere and I echo John’s comments. It’s just a shame about the bust crossing the neck. Well exposed.
    I like the saturated and muted colours in the last one.
