Hi Aleks. Your photos are becoming more and more artistic and experimental. Wonderful colours create a certain intensity of vision. A special result. Klaudio.

You've crweated a painting with lens. Congratulation. Just one suggestion' if we could see the flowers bit more, it would be great.
Thank you very much for sharing.
Let us share our world to each other.

Hello Aleks - Dreamy presentation with a warm and harmonious palette. I love the composition and think the contrast provided by the trees is perfect and well balanced. Warm regards Rosemary

A very unusual autumn composition with a strong but narrow tonal influence which establishes the mood. I agree with Sourav; it's like a painting - subtle and mellow, just like the season. But might be even better with more leaves showing at the top. Nicely framed, too.

A daring but brilliant cropping!
Light and colors..... So lovely.

Simple and very attractive scene. I love the collors and the artistic POV. Good work!

This is a lot more than just snapping a picture of a few trees and some grass. An ordinary, straight-forward picture could have been quite lovely thanks to the fine autumn colours, but you have turned it into a "painting", as others have pointed out. The unusual framing and the soft colours make it very attractive. It would be interesting to know if you composed it like this at the spot, or if the cropping and treatment is the result of what I believe is an increased talent and probably a higher level of ambitions since October 2011.

Beautiful golden colors of autumn, but the trees were awkwardly cut!

Oh dear, I've waited until now - after I have had a good look at this picture and your next one and compared them at length - but, despite looking at them both over and over again, I still can't make up my mind as to which I prefer!
This, I can quite understand, must have been quite a dilemma for you because I really do struggle with compositions and just where and how much to crop an image can really be quite a struggle. The trouble is, of course, that in most cases your first instincts are probably the correct ones and the longer you ponder and the more you play about with an image, the more difficult it becomes and you may well end up with something not quite so good as your initial efforts.
So, Aleks, I really love this one - the colours and the light are just divine, your exposure is perfect and the details and sharpness are excellent.
I still can't make up my mind - I think my final answer is that they are both beautiful photographs and I love them both. What I would really like would be to have the pair of them printed out and hung on opposite walls of our living room - not only would they look wonderful but it would be a great conversation piece to ask each guest which one they preferred!
