4th place
Changing Colors of Autumn by espinosa6pack

6gram: Awesome picture. The colors jump out. I Love it.

purmusic: Very nicely composed image.

Going to be bold here, you ready?

I am going to guess that you were dealing with a somewhat problematic sky here. As in, possibly over-exposed.

If so, some creative food for thought for you on the note of exposure:

"Exposure - Film and light record image"



/\ Kidding a bit in the above.

Mind you, there are a myriad of ways and image editing tutorials on the 'how to stuff'.

You've balanced out the blues in the sky with their counterpart; reflections on the water ... well. (Compositionally speaking, that is.)

What has seemed to happen is that by uppingthe colour saturation ... some details are lost.

So, my counsel/advice (friendly) here, would be to dial that back some.

However, and with that said?

Artisitic licence taken? Of course, I can respect that.


5th place
Burnished Bark by Silvanus

wheedance: Congrats! Love the way the colors glow.

rforres: I saw this in the voting booth and had to find out what it was. It looks almost metallic and yet also natural at the same time. Very cool effect! :)

avedeloff: Nature does it's own abstract art for us. A great shot.
