About the Image(s)

Have been doing a lot of hiking lately and am just not interested in carrying a lot of heavy gear. So, I have relied on the iPhone for photos. This particular day the lighting was crummy and the iPhone stayed in the pocket. Then without notice, the light improved for a few minutes. Fortunately, I did have the iPhone and captured this image. Used the trees to frame the scene and hide the light bluish-gray sky. Minor touchup with Snapseed Tune Image, Selective to increase the color in the leaves, and added a frame.

Moral of the story: Enjoy your outside activities, but also be alert for changing light conditions. It typically doesn't last long.

Nice colors and composition. The trees, the rock outcropping, and the far shoreline lead one's eyes into the scene. Pleasant fall image suited for a calendar. I wouldn't have noticed the added frame if you hadn't mentioned it.   Posted: 11/08/2019 08:17:40

What a beautiful place to hike. You used the trees nicely to frame the view for a keyhole look at the lake and you used the trees to block out most of the gray sky. The bright fall colored trees at the bottom of the frame provide a nice focal point leading into the image. Very nice.   Posted: 11/11/2019 10:10:41

Lovely foreground colors and a nice framing job. The light, while brighter, still seems flat on my monitor. Is there a fix for that?   Posted: 11/11/2019 15:19:36
