A Touch of Fall by Les Tyler

June 2020 - A Touch of Fall

About the Image(s)

I made this image while driving through the Jersey Pine Barrens on the hunt for whatever I could find. I spotted this and had to try to capture the light coming in, the light was right on the money. I tweaked it in Lightroom to bring out the contrast a little more and also the color. I used my old Nikon D70, at ISO 200, 1/400 sec.F/4.5

A Touch of Fall! A Touch of heart! I would dark a bit the bottom and bright more the left top.   Posted: 06/08/2020 02:50:01

P=Remarkable image. I don't think I would touch a thing. The center of the image is so strong and so riveting, I would be concerned about lessening its effect.

Wow! Incredible image. The foreground lighting on the grasses is incredible. The color in the background and the lighting enhanses it. I would crop the top to exclude most of the blue sky. This would keep the eye on the light path and color of the image. Well done!   Posted: 06/09/2020 13:18:22

These older cameras are really good, aren't they. You have an excellent photo eye to have spotted this. The lighting on the center flowers is really great. I do agree with Barbara to crop off the light sky area at the top. I also use Hue and Saturation to tone down the blues on the flowers in the shade. To me it looks more natural, because our eyes don't see the blues in the shade.   Posted: 06/13/2020 13:05:51

Nice natural image. Although the white plants on the front be able to distinguish with background, but Seems to me it still too complicated. I would try to blur the background to get the white plants more outstanding.   Posted: 06/18/2020 20:54:37

An impressive image Les. You have a good eye that caught your attention. I think you are in a catch 22 here. Your motivation was to capture the light rays and the flowers. On the other hand, additional separation would be great at focusing the viewer's attention. Unfortunately, is appears by comparing your rendition to Tony's, you seem to loosen the affect of the light rays.   Posted: 06/27/2020 17:30:16
