About the Image(s)

This month's offering is a shot of the Yakima River near Cle Elum. The site is about 3/4 mile from home. I can fly this route from the back yard.
Theme is Fall Color. Phantom 4 Pro, Aperture Priority, F8, 1/40 sec, ISO 400.
Adjusted contrast, saturation, burned in midtones, cloned out some irrigation piping, and cropped in PS.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

This is a beautiful image. I really like the composition with the bend in the river. I am envious that you can find great places to fly and photograph from your backyard.

I see the improvement you made to the original. If it were my image, I would have added a bit more contrast.

Hi Bob, great image. I love the C curve in the river, I think it draws attention to the barn. I agree with Don that a bit more contrast might be desirable.   Posted: 11/19/2021 06:31:17

Great image Bob, love the curve of the river and the great colors. I really wish that cropping of trees in the center wasn't right in the center. Maybe just offset just a bit. To me, it draws my eye down and out of the frame.   Posted: 11/21/2021 16:21:38
