I might have titled this "The Last Hurrah" as the next day a week long+ heavy winter snow storm hit the area and eliminated visibility. Even though I love fall colors in the snow the weather was too much for us to negotiate with our camper... so we made a hasty retreat. Even so, the few shots I did get made the trip worthwhile.

Uploading images to TN with accurate color saturation is giving me fits. I have to adjust images that look correct on my Mac to Standard Windows Color. There is a way for me to preview them but I am never sure if they are over done or underdone... so to speak. One of these days I'll have to check out my gallery on a PC.

A very beautiful autumn scene Evelynn. I really love the way the mountains in the background are framed by the ground and the brillant trees. Good to hear that you hightailed it out of there in the nick of time. Well presented. :) TFS


Hi Evelynn,

another beautiful autumn landscape. Great view on mountains below the tree, blue and red makes here very nice contrast.
Saturation is quite strong but still looks natural and good. Very nice composition.

Hello Evelynn
beautifulst the shadings of vivid colors of the leaves, beautiful the contrast and the fine details of the leaves thanks to a light good hand. Great for hoods and mountains on the background.

Hello Evelynn,
The title seems perfectly fine for this original concept that you present.

The contrast between the fall in the FG and the snow clad mountains in the BG looks all the more wonderful when one looks through the natural arch that you brought into the frame. How i wish i could go see this place for myself!!!!I cant imagine how the weather changed and the place got buried in snow.
The saturation is perfect for me.

I'm so glad you captured this wonderful "unforgettable" moment and doing full justice to the colours and concept.
Thanks a ton and cheers
P.S:Would love to add this to my "unforgettable" theme:)

Hello Evelynn,
That's a window!
It surely made your trip worthwhile.
I have a PC (unfortunately?) and your colors are just great.
As a matter of fact it's a visual feast.
Beautiful, lady!

Superb use of framing by the trees...You have caught many things...geology, weather in two distinct seasons guided by only altitude and gosh knows what all else I am missing...it is your field of expertise as I have mentioned before...I would stop at your place on the way top Cali and have a cup of tea...perhaps with a shot of rum and sweets for a salute to the season.
...yeah really I would!

Stunning image Evelynn,
Almost like viewing two distinctly beautiful scenes in the same photo. The mountains in the BG are a real asset to an already wonderful image. Well done!!! perfect in every way!

Amazing composition, Evelynn.
The colors are wonderful.
You know what is so interesting in this...
The foreground is the grass and trees, making a perfect frame.
The mountains, which are the big and strong elements, look small and ephemeral in the distance.
Something about this reversed status throws me off balance, which makes this image so attractive to me.
If you know what I mean...
TFS. : )

What a beautiful picture window you have here Evelynn. So colourfully framed with teh autumn leaves.
Super view of the mountains in the BG

Hello Evelynn
Beatiful reddish window,, contrasting with the white-blue of the mountains from the backgound.
Kind regards, Oana

Amazingly beautiful, you captured the grandeur of this renowned place in a stunning landscape. What I particularly like in this picture are the two different scales, the one at the tree's scale opening on the grandiose mountains in the back, huge and beautiful. Thank you Evelynn,

hello Evelynn,
What a beatiful window!! Great landscape-shot showing autumnal colors already mixed with first manifestations of wintertime in the back. The Teton park seesm a source of inspiration for a lot of people. It must great to be there.
Best regards

Hello Evelynn
No worry your colours are real and really stunning!even on my PC!
Great composition with a window on the mountains in the BG
Well done

What an incredible landscape! The colors are shouting, begging to be noticed - and notice them I did!

The composition is perfect, as is the exposure. Excellent clarity and I love how this goes from the small grains of stalks to the mountains - talk about All Things Big and Small (a favorite book I had as a child) - an excellent capture, my friend.

Kathy :-)

Hi My Friend,
This is going to my favorites too. The composition is outstanding Evelynn with the distant mountain framed by autumn colors/

Hello Evelynn,
I love the way you've framed the distant mountains in wonderful autumn colours. Excellent DOF, wonderful colours and an excellent composition.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Evelynn,
I had this whole story written and then pushed a wrong button. So I'll start over again.

I like the way you used a natural frame to frame the famous Tetons. I am sure that this has not been done that often. I also like the color contrast raning from warm brown to cool grey. The saturation looks fine to me and still feels very realistic. The details in the right tree are great, except for the top right corner. But I think that the chosen aperture caused some drop in sharpnes in the second tree. I know that cloning is against the TOS, but I would be tempted to clone out that little twig alsmost touching the mountain.

Hello Evelynn,
Thank you for sharing this awesome autumn window with us from the National Park!
the mountains from the far distance is really nice!
good sharpness, wonderful colour and details
well done

Hello Evelynn! A beautiful and naturally framed composition. Perfect colors and a great exposure. Fantastic image!


Our favorite mountains, and you've added a lovely frame! I like the colors, too. vey inventive, Evelynn!

Although I don't doubt Niek, for my two cents the image seems crisp throughout. But maybe it's the 14 inch monitor I'm using on my laptop.
