Winkworth is a National Trust property in England that was deliberately planted-up many years ago with trees good for their autumn colours... as you can see.

This is quite beautiful! The way the tree trunks stand out against the coloured leaves is just wonderful. I love the whole scene, can almost hear the leaves crunching under my footsteps..

WOW...that's what i call a nice natural red carpet. The colors are absolutely amazing and you captured that moment very well. I'm not sure about the green leafs in the foreground..but I think I would like it more without them. Nevertheless, a great shot...

What a beautiful color scene. I have missed many opportunities like this because I didnít carry my cam with me. And you have done Ur best to give the viewer a piece of your mind. Your focus and composition is lovely. Even thought there is a bit over contrast on the top sky its not harming the image much. Nice work!

My latest photo Brahmin Kite
Kindly visit my gallery and comment on my photos.

Thanks for your kind comments.
Berniespeed - you're right that in some ways the picture would be better without the green leaves in the foreground, but I wanted to give the impression of "pushing through" into something a little hidden and mysterious; it also adds a little depth. But equally your preference would work too.
Priyanthab - you're right as well that the pic has a little too much contrast on the top sky. It was a tricky balance, as it was such a bright day but this particular spot was in deep shade!
By the way, I'd like to see your image Brahmin Kite and your gallery, but for some reason the links don't work. Images moved? Links outdated? Or is it that there are still one or two bugs in my browser, Firefox 1.5?

Mother Nature has her vivid colored carpet rolled out today. One could safely say "roll out the red carpet"! hehe These are amazing colors. The skyhas some extra contrast there which doesn't go well witht he iamge and I am not sure about the green leaves in the right corner foreground. They do add contrast though...mixed feelings. Lovely capture anyway and thanks for posting :~)

Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink. . . . drink in the moments that take your breath away. . . . .

Look to the Future, Remeber the Past, but Live in the Present, and Never forget to tell those you love "I Love You", you may not get another chance.

Thanks for all your encouragement. In response to jazzyg, Winkworth Arboretum is in Surrey, close to Godalming. It's a wonderful place, and I intend going again!

One of the pretttier fall photos I've seen. I like the downward slope of the shot and the color is gorgeous.I think I would have tried cloning out the green leaves in the lower right, but that's a small matter. Lovely image.

Hello .. Beautiful image .. would love to see more from here if you have them

as a side note .. your comment to "priyanthab" about not being able to view his links .. there is a wayward asterisk or quote symbol on the end of his link that shouldn't be there (*my eyes are too bad to make it out right now*) .. using firefox, just middle-click them to send them to a new tab and then backspace the (%22) characters off to the .jpg extension

His gallery link is the same as the Brahmin Kite

images do get deleted .. but you should always look for any "funky bits" on the link .. (Just point your mouse pointer at it and read it on the status bar at the bottom of your browser)

PS .. I didn't mean for this to be more about links than images .. :o)

Thanks Keifer - have found Brahmin kite now. Sadly, the autumn colours at Winkworth Arboretum weren't particularly good this year due to unkind weather, excepting this one area in my image above, so no more autumn colours for a while.

Wow. This is enough to knock me outa me chair. Love the way you allowed some fall colors to barely show through in the far background.. The detail in those tree trucnks is awesome.Some of the green showing through on the left adds a nice touch. SAs for the complaints about the green leaves on the lower right, as long as you were standing where you were, there is no way to exclude them without cropping the pic to pieces. Nice as it.

That was a good scene! Those reds are knockout contrasting so beautifully with the tree trunks. I like the sloping hill. Over all a great capture.
