Karuizawa is a very trendy place, very crowded in high season (summer). But in November it was almost deserted, and then was a very nice place to have a good week-end!
Momiji (maple) leaves are very popular for Japanese photographers in this season, as they turn bright red. This photo is a classic, and you can probably fine many other (better) examples :)

Yes, a classic Japanese momiji shot but I don't think I've seen any better on TE. Nice shot. Perfect DOF. Nice saturated colours. Other fall colours in the background as well as a hint of blue sky. I can't think of any way to improve it.

Looks unreal, however, where should I focus my eyes? Maybe if you could only focus on one part of the leaves would be a nicer picture? Great colours though and thanks for sharing

Wonderful silky texture of those red leaves.
I like the diagonal line.
QWell seen and well done, Jerome.

Tremendous capture of Japan's vibrant autumn colors, and great use of DoF. The background and the fall of the branch both compliment the subject. Nice.

I like the colors and the background. The leaves almost look plastic. Well taken!

Truly beautiful composition! The reds are wonderful and the angle of the branch against the blurred backround is great. Nicely done.

Your photo was highlighted on the TE homepage just now and I wanted to compliment you on the nicely captured scene even though it was submitted last year. Nicely done.
