very nice to see the contrast of complimentary colours which as your note indicates are opposite one another on the colour wheel.Autumn does not last long enough for my liking as I work six days a week and get few chances to photo the great out doors.The colours in this shot are the main point of interest for me and your details and clear focus bring it all to life.Thanks for yet another wonderful landscape photo. Bob

Again a wonderful composition with striking colours and great light. I like you the way you took the picture,placing the birches in contrast to the sky. Wonderful autumnal shot.
Sorry i've missed some of your posts lately, but i've been quite busy with some projects as well as a small trip (Finally!). Sadly, it looks as TN time will also be sacrificed for at least a part of this week so please accept my apologies if i will miss some more :) Hope i will have time to catch up :)
This is a splendid shot and one in which the strong colors really stand out perfectly! A very good use of the polarizer here that really punched them up a level.
From what i learned in school, i remember that orange and blue actually are complementary colors. There are 3 pairs of such colors: red+gren, yellow+purple (i think that's the English term) plus the one here - orange and blue. This was part of the art class. However, in physics i learned that if you mix the 3 prime colors in equal amount, you'll actually get perfect white, not neutral grey, because it is white light that the colors originate from.
Anyway...this is all theory :)
You picture is a terrific application of all these laws and a splendid composition created with this beautiful natural place.
I also feel that white vertical lines add a lot to the excellent look of the sees, just like the yellow-ish trees in the back.
All-in-all: a splendid composition and presentation.
Bravo and TFS
PS: it's not bad that you faught the wind with a very short shutter speed, but the idea o using the wind is not a bad one...maybe a bit late, but there are always going to be other situations in which i would try to encourage you to experiment further...you really have a great eye for things and i would love to see what you can come up with :)
Simply stunning Evelynn...the contrast between red and blue...wow. excellent framing too, so very well seen ...one for my favourites!
What a beautiful landscape in ful autumn colours. What a contrast in colors in this picture. From skyblue till orange/brown. Wonderful. Your POV, placing the birches in contrast to the sky is great. Great composition. Regards and TFS BOB
ps I like the explanation from Horia very well

I always get a kick out of reading your notes after I view your posts.Your assessment of your own work usually focuses on exactly what I want to say.
The deep blue sky contrasts the orange so well,and at mid composition you have the band of vivid yellow nicely broken up by the vertical tree trunks.
The sky is remarkable in this shot.
A beautiful autumn scene.

I really like the way you have two lines of orange in this picture - the pale central one and the upper one. The contrast with the blue sly is lovely.

Yes, those colours are just fantastic! It is quite simple impossible to walk by trees like this and not take a photo! And Im glad you did, because they look great. The white trunks contrast well against the yellow background, and the orange leaves on top looks great againt the blue sky. A wonderful autumn shot! Well done!

Wonderful landscape in striking colours and very well composed. I like the orange tree tops against the blue sky and the straight white tree trunks. Very beautiful!
Many thanks, Ulla

Hello Evelynn, that's a very nice composition, the polarizer gives a boost on the colors and the details are very crisp !
Lets start what struck me most when I looked at this photo carefully....a really strange orange spot in the top of the sky. Were you that lucky to catch a leaf in flight?
Besides this spot, the color contrast between the sky and leaves is superb and has probably been made even more stronger by the white tree trunks. I think your choise of a high shutter speed was good, otherwise you might have ended up with a blurry spot of orange.
