Hi Otto,
Nice landscape picture. Beautiful colors of tree canopies, typical autumn season. Nice shot. Well done.

Hi Otto,
Stunning photo, with beautiful colors and great clarity. I love the way you framed the mountian by the trees. Mike idea is good, but I think that meant that you had to jump up really high to reach the same viewing point. Watch out with adding too much contrast, the sky will turn into this pale aqua color.

Hi Otto,
Beautiful landscape, well seen! Wonderful colours and a great view of the mountain in the distance. Good use of trees to frame the mountain. Maybe i would take a few steps to the left (if possible) so that the trees would be evenly framed on both sides of the mountain to balance the composition. Just my opinion :)

Hello Otto

A beautiful landscape shot .The composition is lovely.The colours are well saturated and spectacular.TFS


Bonjour Pablo
Belle prise de vue C'est un très joli Paysage d'automne. Les contrsates et les détails sont clairs. Belle présentation . J'aime bien les montagnes bordées par les lignes d'arbres..
Bravo et au revoiret bon week end ....JP

There are some really lovely colors here, Otto. I think the exposure could have been evened out a bit in pp. I also prefer a tighter crop. The bit of tree on the left doesn't add anything to your composition.

Hola Otto:
Buen trabajo. Un tìpico cuadro otoñal con bosque y montaña. Hermosos y variados colores que dan marco a esta captura.

Hello Otto,
A beautiful presentation of this beautiful landscape!
The sense of depth is excellent, with this fine framing of the majestic mountains...
Wonderful colours of autumn, very eye-catching and pleasant to look at!

Hello Otto,
glorious beauty, breathtaking. Brilliant light, marvellous depth, and a well balanced classical composition. These must have been mind opening wonderful days out there!
Autumn is approaching Austria now, too. There has been no frost yet but mild late summer temperatures in all the lower elevations, therefore most of the vegetation is still green and quite a number of flowers are still around. That seems to be changing in the next few days. But even after the first frost we don't have colours here as strong and splendid as you can enjoy in the prairie and in the rockies. Plenty of good grapes for vine here this year.
With best regards from Vienna,

Simply Canadian! :) Thats exactly how I imagine it there!

Great shot! Nice composition and balance. Although tighter cropping on the left might help (a little dark) - I am afraid it might upset the wonderful overall balance. I hope no one walked past this view without stopping to admire!
