Fall Along the C&O Canal by Eric Schweitzer

November 2021 - Fall Along the C&O Canal

About the Image(s)

I had been going to this part of the canal several times a week for the last month trying to get a series of images showing the progression of the fall colors. This was taken on the last weekend of October. Settings: 1/50 sec @ f11 with ISO at 800. Focal length of 43mm on a 24-105mm lens, using a tripod. In post I cropped, adjusted white balance, and completed basic adjustments and sharpening. I used the sliders in the HSL panel to bring out the fall colors.

The sharpness, colors, composition, and DOF are very good in this lovely peaceful scene. Good job.   Posted: 11/11/2021 10:03:19

I really like the fall colors in this scene, as well as the reflection of the rocks and the faint colors of the leaves in the canal. I cropped mercilessly to focus just on those two features. Not better so much as another way of looking at it.   Posted: 11/21/2021 15:19:13

I love the colors, the composition and clarity. I have no suggestions to improve it. Thanks for sharing.   Posted: 11/22/2021 13:28:03
