About the Image(s)

Our leaves are not at peak yet, but they are very close. I love the way the
pedal boats and trees compliment each other.

I love the reflections of the poles in the water.
Sorry about the leaves. Ours are not turning either but just falling off. This captures the colors of this time.
The shot seems dull to me but I suspect that's the real feel.
I love the empty bench at the end of the pier.

In this shot, I like the contrast between the blues and purples of the row of peddle boats and the greens and browns of the autumnal trees in the background. To me the colours in the trees are very dull and would have benefitted from increasing their saturation. I would have been inclined to crop off the righthand side up to the second pole as there are a couple of light objects there which can draw the eye.   Posted: 11/07/2021 04:57:35

The color combination certainly makes this photo interesting. I think a boost in contrast and saturation would help. I don't know if you use NIK Color Efex, but they have a couple of filters that would work nicely, Indian summer and Foliage.   Posted: 11/16/2021 09:49:41

I am confused by the Original shot. Is that the same photo?

Somehow Brad must have mixed the images up. That is not the original...not even my picture. I didn't include the original.   Posted: 11/22/2021 21:32:20

I love the colors of the peddle boats. I would like to see more contrast/color in the trees on the background. This does not seem to be a good year for fall colors. If you use Lightroom, play with the Temperature slider to bring more life into those trees. The horizon, i.e. the line where the land hits the water, is not straight. The crop tool can easily adjust that.   Posted: 11/22/2021 12:24:44

I like the alternating colours of the boats surrounded by the poles and reflections. Overall the image seems a little flat.
Try a simple Levels adjustment and drag the right slider in to the start of the heap.   Posted: 11/24/2021 04:03:17
