About the Image(s)

After spending part of a foggy October morn on the backroads around Iola and Scandinavia, Wisconsin, I came home to find this autumn jewel across the street from my house at McCarville's. The fog nicely illuminated by a later sun backdropped the main tree to give added depth to the image and made it magical. Tech stuff: ISO 100, f/16, 1/6 sec., manual, center weighted average metering, 112mm focal length. Standard LR and PS processing, then into Topaz Studio for fall adjustments and sharpening. Then used PS for some burning of the edges. I strove to bring out the foreground while allowing the fog and light to create a backdrop and a sense of depth. To my eye, the foggy side counters the darker foliage on the right. For me the image also shows a nice transit of fall from green, to color, to bare branches and limbs.

Great work in post processing Trey. You creatively brought out the fall colors, lighting, and details from a non-de original image.   Posted: 11/20/2021 08:57:52

You brought a lot of clarity and color to your image. Burning the edges focuses the eye right to the area of the image that is most important. Great job, Trey. I hear that Wisconsin is very beautiful in the fall with all its beautiful colors.   Posted: 11/20/2021 19:13:40

This is a great story of fall (we call it autumn). Nature's transition from life into hibernation, plant life is winding down and the colours are fading. Fog always assists in providing mood in this type of image. Your processing, as always is very good and you have brought a scene from one that we may perhaps walk right by, to one that we stop to look at. Great work.   Posted: 11/22/2021 01:17:46

In your image, I perceive a vibration, as if an angel wanted to blow out the candles and put out those flames.
It is poetic, soft, pleasant to look at.
You don't have to go far to make beautiful images. You just have to look around you.   Posted: 11/23/2021 10:06:30
